Bored to Death at Work


According to a recent study to be published in the International Journal of Epidemiology next month, experts say there's a possibility that the more bored you are at work, the more likely you are to die early. While the research is preliminary, researchers Anne Britton and Martin Shipley suggest that boredom may lead to other health factors such as depression and heart disease and the health risks associated with boredom could be as dangerous as those associated with job stress.

If you are bored at work right now, perhaps it's time to take a break and see how others suggest combating boredom. (Note: Do not try this at work - or home for that matter!)
