How’s your mental health recently? 🫂 Whether you work in a startup, a large enterprise, are freelance or self-employed - your work can have a huge impact on your mental health. You spend 8ish hours (on average) a day working, 8 hours sleeping and 8 hours doing what you want (including chores). So try and make sure those 8 hours don’t negatively affect the rest of your life.
According to Sifted readers, a big part of mental health problems at work was down to how inexperienced many managers at startups are.
“[The inexperienced managers I’ve had] have had little regard for the impact their decisions have on someone’s mental health,” one said. Another agreed, adding that “ego and inexperience can be brutal for all involved”.
