Survey Reveals Most Of Us Are Workaholics!

These days it’s hard to separate our work life from our home life, which may be why most Americans these days consider themselves workaholics.

A new poll finds that 48% of Americans consider themselves to be workaholics, with 28% saying they work so hard because they have to for financial reasons. Just how much does work seep into our private lives? Well, 58% of workers say they check work email while they are still in bed in the morning, with the average American spending four hours a week working for free, and another four hours thinking about work.

So, how do you know if you’re a workaholic? According to the poll, the top sign is that you prioritize your work before your personal life (54%), followed by worrying about work on a day off (51%). Other signs you’re a workaholic include:

  • Struggling to switch off or actually working while on a vacation (50%)
  • Checking emails in the middle of the night (48%)
  • Being the first person to get to work and last to leave (46%)
  • Feeling pressured or too busy to take annual leave (46%)
  • Working through lunch (45%)
  • Feeling anxious or lost if I don't check in/know what's happening at work (45%)

  • Checking emails first thing in the morning (39%)
