Do you love your job? And we mean really love your job. Whether your answer was “yes,” “no,” or “I don’t know,” it’s time to consider how much of an impact your job has on your life and happiness.

Why It’s Important to Love Your Job

The average person spends 40 hours a week at their job — some even more. When you think about it, you’ll spend most of your life working, so it’s important to love what you do.

Your job affects your happiness.

Even if you’re only at work from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., the effects of a positive or negative work environment seep into your personal and home life.

Your job affects your mental health.

Particularly if you have a stressful job, your work can have a negative effect on your mental health. Studies show that stressful or unhealthy work environments can lead to depression and anxiety.

Your job affects your physical health.

Stress, long work hours, and fast food can destroy your health. From heart attack and stroke to weight gain and a weakened immune system being over-worked is a serious health issue.

Your job affects your personal relationships.

Do you come home happy, excited to talk about your day or do you walk through the door annoyed? Your mood can be felt by everyone else in your house and can have a good or bad effect on your relationships with them.
