What is overwork?

Overwork is a condition which leads to the feeling of having been working too hard, for too long. Somebody working beyond their capacity and perhaps beyond their usual working hours for too long can lead to the condition of overwork.

Why is overwork important?

Overworking quickly leads to issues with stress and burnout. People who are overworked typically struggle with their workload because there is so much to do, leading to distraction or performance issues. When feeling overworked, people may also struggle to balance their work and personal life, and will feel like they take their work home with them. Overwork can also cause health issues including trouble sleeping, a weakened immune system, mood swings and more.

Warning signs for overwork:

  • Feeling overwhelmed by the amount of work that needs to be done
  • Always being on the clock
  • A toxic company culture that prioritizes productivity
