Work Is Healthy

Work promotes tasks and experiences that have shown to help improve health and well-being. In a recent study, researchers Marie Jahoda and Howard Rush identified five benefits that work provides:

  • Work imposes a time structure on the waking day.
  • Work compels contacts and shared experiences with others outside the nuclear family.
  • Work links an individual to goals and purposes which transcend his or her own but require a collectivity.
  • Work imposes status and social identity through the division of labor in modern employment.
  • Work enforces activity.
