Man Working 16-17 Hours a Day Seeks Health Advice, Doctor Recommends Reducing Work Hours
A man who goes by the name Harshal on Twitter recently sought health advice from Dr Sudhir Kumar, a neurologist from Apollo Hospitals in Hyderabad. Harshal, who works more than 16-17 hours a day at a corporate job, was concerned about his blood pressure and tweeted to Dr Kumar for advice.
The Twitter conversation between Harshal and Dr Kumar has since gone viral on the micro-blogging site, with internet users empathizing with Harshal’s situation. In response to Harshal’s tweet, Dr Kumar recommended that he reduce his working hours by 50 percent and ensure that an unemployed person, whose job Harshal was doing in addition to his, gets a job.
Harshal thanked Dr Kumar for the advice and revealed that he had to quit his job because he was told to work during the weekend as well. Dr Kumar hailed Harshal’s resignation as a “great decision” and wished him luck in his future endeavors.
Internet users also weighed in on the conversation, with some offering words of encouragement and others sharing their own experiences with long work hours. One user suggested that Harshal start saying no to work demands, while another recommended that he explore the potential of organic farming as a fulfilling alternative to corporate life.
