Poll: Do you get dragged into doing work while off-duty?

A new study has shown its contributing to people’s stress.

NEW SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH carried out among workers working in the City of London has shown they are often more stressed when at home than at work because they are dealing with work problems while off-duty.

The peer-reviewed study published in Frontiers in Neuroscience used wrist monitors to measure heart rates and has linked spikes in heart rate to work-related stress.

The authors of the report say that spikes in stress are linked to cardiovascular disease and are urging people to switch off when the go home from work.

Today we’re asking, Do you get dragged into doing work while off-duty?
