If you’re active in Twitterjaya, then you probably would have come across an ongoing discussion about working culture, or more specifically, that the idea of losing sleep due to working overtime is glorified and is often seen as admirable (despite not being paid for working said overtime hours).

Most recently, this particular issue became a topic of discussion because of a tweet from PKR Vice President Rafizi Ramli, who listed out the things he hoped his interns learnt during their time in PKR. 

The final point, in particular, sparked some controversy among netizens, who thought he was glorifying overworking culture, which is both mentally and physically unhealthy for those who practise this very frequently. Many also pointed out the issue of burnout when it comes to continuously working overtime. 

In light of the backlash to his tweet, Rafizi took to the social media platform again to clarify what he meant in his third point. He explained that he wanted his interns to work efficiently and master the art of multitasking at work.

Responses to the PKR Vice President’s tweet have definitely opened up a much-needed discussion about overworking.

Countless scientific studies have shown that working many hours overtime can increase one’s risk of burning out. Seriously, burnout is no joke. Burnout symptoms are not only psychological, as they can also manifest in physical symptoms that can harm your health in the long run. Here are just some of the symptoms of someone who’s burnt out, according to Forbes;

  • Exhaustion (emotional, mental, or physical)
  • Declining job performance
  • Interpersonal problems at home or work
  • Health problems (e.g.: digestive issues, heart disease, depression, and anxiety)
  • Decreased satisfaction with work
  • Not taking care of yourself 

On top of that, cases of people committing suicide due to overwork have become so common in Japan, that they even have a special name for it in Japanese, ‘Karoshi‘!

So guys, let’s not take our mental and physical health for granted and do our best to achieve a healthy work-life balance!
