That is according to the findings of a study headed up by psychologist Richard Balding, which established that many professionals suffer from stress at work because they cannot switch off from their duties after a shift.
Indeed, this is also true in a literal sense as a lot of individuals admitted to constantly checking their smartphones or laptops for work-related emails when at home - something that only increases mental anxiety further.
In the most serious cases, members of staff were even found to experience "phantom" alerts from their phone, whereby they imagine they feel their device vibrating when this is not actually the case.
Mr Balding commented this makes it clear companies should try to make sure their employees do not feel under pressure to work while not in the office.
Recently, figures published by the Eastbourne Herald showed that the East Sussex Healthcare Trust lost 7,518 working days due to stress between April and October last year.
