All Work, No Play Proves Negative Impacts

Athens, GA- All work and no play proves to be bad for individuals’ well being. A new University of Georgia study shows that workaholism tends to produce negative impacts for employers and employees. The study called “All Work and No Play? A Meta-Analytic Examination of the Correlates and Outcomes of Workaholism” studies the causes and effects of workaholism, including its similarities to other forms of addiction. “Workaholism” is a term coined in 1971 that describes a condition in which someone’s need for work becomes so excessive it interferes with personal health and happiness, interpersonal relations and social functioning. We talked to a student juggling three jobs and the impact it has on her health.
