Do I have a Problem with Work Addiction?
Work addiction, also known as workaholism or burnout, can have significant impacts on individuals’ careers, families, relationships, physical health and quality of life.
Often misunderstood, ‘workaholic’ actually describes people who feel compelled to work and derive their sense of self and self-worth from their work. The process of overworking may also allow us to avoid intimacy and connection with others. The questions below are designed to assist in raising your awareness if such issues exist for you.
As you read each statement, take your time to think about the answer before selecting the response which feels right.
