Shorter Work Day – Happier Life?
Do you think you'd be happier if you worked less? Research suggests that may not be the case. Scientists studied the effect of a shorter workweek and found that, while people expressed gratitude for working fewer hours, they did not rate their jobs or lives as better or more satisfying.
That may be because their job intensity increased as their employers expected them to complete the same work in less time, actually making them more stressed out.
