Default increased work hours and mental status...

I am a telemarketer, till last month I used to work 7 hrs a day sitting job. My employer changed work culture and from this month we are allowed to work from home too as we are working with 'HTC's android phones' with 'My Sales Dialer' application. I can continue my job from mobile phone. so my one place sitting condition is changed. As to get incentives my work hour increased to 12-13 Hrs. but now my condition is different I am facing various health problems. is it due to changed working conditions or because of increased work hours? or it not related to my job at all? I don't know... but now I am trying to reduce my working time to 10 Hrs max..

It's probably stress related due to automated calling of people that are registered on the Do Not Call List, like myself.

Sorry to hear about all the stress. How about you post your telephone number here and we'll all give you a call and chat about it. What time do you eat dinner?

Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions

Various health problems could be just about anything. Probably you are just getting older. It happens.

So you just have to meet a certain amount of calls and in between you are doing other stuff? I don't see how you are working for 13 hours straight unless you are working fewer days.

I guess there are the pros and cons of telecommuting. Of course, he advantage is you can work at your own pace which seems to be more workable for some. The disadvantage of course is trouble with the system you are using. Like me, I am not the techy type so, most of the time, I'd depend with our IT personnel even to the simplest thing possible. When you work at home, it would be a breeze working at home if you have a reliable assistance from your main office.

It helps relieve stress to move and stretch. This you can do at home now that you have that freedom! I'm sorry you work so many hours.

You would think that adding a little bit of walking and a stretch would add time to your day but it only has to be two or three minutes every hour. You can walk, step outside and breathe some fresh air, stretch. If you're indoors, put some music on to lighten your mood. Then, back to work.
