Time management is very important trick to have a successful work life. It is important to balance between everything in life to be able to maintain your health at a steady level. There are definitely a lot of changes that occur to the body when it meets irregular schedules and failing to have a routine lifestyle. A recent study conducted by a team of researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago suggests that irregular schedules of life might actually increase the risk of injuries for young adults. The study expresses the fact that minors like to work for longer hours as part of their career advancements. However, this has proven to increase risks of acquiring injuries due to lack of focus and loss of control. This targets people who work shifts that lasts more than 9 hours a day. The study and the results were published by lead author and an associate professor in the UIC School of Public Health, called Lee Friedman, published in the Occupational and Environmental Medicine journal. Lee commented on the results saying, “While the mining industry has seen some improvements in injury rates among workers in recent decades, its workers tend to work longer hours than the average worker. Because studies on how longer shifts impact mining injuries are inconclusive, we thought it was important to take a closer look at this.” The study included the use of 545,537 participants who showed a total of 9.6% injury rate for workers working 9 hours.
