A three-day week is best for workers over the age of 40, according to economic researchers. Let me just make a note of that – I’ll email this to the boss later…
Experts say that working 3 days a week provides the optimum balance between brain exhaustion and keeping our minds stimulated. The research analysed the working habits and brain test results of 3,000 men and 3,500 women over 40. Those who worked 25 hours a week achieved the top scores in tests.
Working a 40-hour week lead to a lower cognitive deterioration – in other words, by Friday afternoon – our brains were fried! The evidence showed that over working could lead to a decline in the brain’s performance.
Only thing wrong with a three day week…is just three days money I would love to work a 3 day week. Trouble is I need a 5 day pay cheque.
