Weekend work increases the risk of depression

Weekend work increases the risk of depression

After being tired of the activities, the weekend should be time for a break.

But it is undeniable that many types of jobs always require being done on weekends. However, there are also those who are deliberately "delayed" until the weekend.

Working on weekends can be good, but not too often. If all too often, bear the consequences.

Research shows that people working on weekends are more prone to mental health problems.

Recent research in the United Kingdom shows that women and men working on weekends are more likely to suffer from depression.

The study, published in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health, analyzed data from a survey of 11,215 men and 12,188 women who worked in the United Kingdom in 2010-2012.

Almost half of women work less than 35 hours a week, while the majority of men work longer. Half of the participants work at least several weekends. The number of men working on weekends is more important, reaching two thirds.

The researchers found that women who work on weekends have more symptoms of depression than those who work only during the week.

In men, they also have more symptoms of depression when they work on weekends and do not like their working conditions either.

Other findings, men who work less than 35 hours have more symptoms of depression than those who work between 35 and 40 hours a week.

In women, the symptoms of depression are even greater for those who work at least 55 hours a week.

"Our findings show gender differences in the relationship between irregular work schedules and depressive symptoms," said Gillian Weston, head of study, University College Lo, quoted by Reuters.

The researchers suggest that job owners or employers and family members consider hours of work to be more favorable to health. Weston said employers need to understand that long hours and weekends can put workers' mental health at risk.

"We need to turn to workers who are supported and valued, who feel they have control, the purpose they have and who have enough time to recover and have fun. Workers happier and healthier, of course benefit the contractors, "said Weston.
