If you give work your all, but don’t get from his superiors neither praise nor reward, you are guaranteed chronic stress.

A new study by scientists from its Eindhoven University of technology (the Netherlands) published in the journal psychoneuroendocrinology is.

The researchers collected hair samples from 172 volunteers, about half of which are “killed” at work, and the rest worked in less strenuous rhythm. The scientists analyzed samples collected on the level of “stress hormone” cortisol.

The release of this hormone occurs in an emergency situation when we are talking about life and death. As a result of the spike in the level of cortisol in the body starts reaction “fight or flight” dramatically increases blood sugar, slows digestion, and there are other biochemical changes that helps to cope with stress.

These changes are useful for short-term stress, but when stress becomes chronic, high cortisol levels suffer from immune, endocrine and other systems of the body.

The analysis revealed high concentrations of cortisol in hair samples was observed only in the group of participants who worked very hard. At the same time the worst things were those of them who do not simply on its own initiative, invested in the work of a lot of effort and taking on excessive obligations, but did not receive for it any gratitude from management.

Earlier psychologists explained why you can’t mix work and personal life.
