Boredom affects our health

One in four employees is believed to be chronically bored, affecting the quality of work he/she produces, but also their physical and mental health, according to a new research. British researchers asked 102 employees to answer a questionnaire in regards to how bored they are at work and what solutions they could come up with. 25% of the respondents replied that this phenomenon existed due to the lack of interest they had for their work, resulting in the consumption of chocolate and coffee during work and alcohol at the end of the day. 

80% of the people stated that boredom affects their concentration, whilst 50% blamed it for the various mistakes they made. However researchers from the University of Central Lancashire argue that the main cause of this phenomenon is the non demanding workload.
