Are you a workaholic?

Wayne Oates, a psychologist who invented the word workaholic, wrote 57 books. Oates once said that his own addiction was “a disorder akin to substance abuse,” writes Jordan Weissmann in an article “The Work Addiction” in the September 2013 issue of The Atlantic.

According to Weissman, workaholics work compulsively and with little enjoyment. They also sometimes have sleep problems, gain weight and suffer from high blood pressure, anxiety and depression.

Are you a workaholic? About 10 percent of the adults in the United States may be. Balance, of course, is always the key. We all need to find the right balance between work and time for relaxation, family and friends.
