I recently read “How Much Should You Care About Your Job?” from Insider. I highlighted this one part about job relationships being a key predictor of overall happiness.
Health and happiness require a kind of personal-investment tightrope walk. Striking the right balance between caring about your work and not caring about your work too much can be the difference between a life that’s rich and satisfying and one that’s marred by loneliness, exhaustion, and despair. That’s no exaggeration: Research suggests a person’s relationship to their job is a key predictor of their overall sense of happiness.
