If you’re over 40-years old and feel less productive after a full work week – it’s not your imagination! A new study says that 40+ shouldn’t work more than 3 days per week!
RealSimple.com says that a new study that was published in the Melbourne Institute Worker Paper says that people who are over 40 “are at their most productive when they work three days a week or less.”
What does their study say?
After a series of cognitive tests, the researchers found that people over 40 “cognitive performance improved as the researchers increased their working hours up to 25 hours.” After 25 hours, however, performance started to decline in both male female test subjects.
What about those who are working more than 55+ hours?
The article says that subjects who worked more than 55 hours per week, “showed cognitive results that were worse than those who were retired or unemployed.”
