A new study that now appears in the Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health found that working excessively long days could be detrimental to mental health.
The team came to this conclusion by looking at data collected from Understanding Society, the United Kingdom Household Longitudinal Study (UKHLS).
The UKHLS tracks the health of around 40,000 households in the U.K.
For this particular study, the researchers used data from over 23,000 men and women. These data included information about employment.
