Science = duh

I wrote earlier about how science seems to be constantly coming out with studies that are proving things that we either already know or just assumed were true because they was so obvious.  To add to the growing list of  “duh,” BBC recently told us that green exercise quickly boosts mental health and that working overtime increases heart risk.

Well obviously!  Outside is where the human race began and spent most of their time.  I maintain that we are not meant to sit inside an enclosed space for 40-50 hours a week.  Which is what the second article presents: people who work too much affect the health negatively.

I have always been and always will be a work to live sort of person.  Of course I think it is crucial that we enjoy what we do and are fulfilled by it.  But there is so much more to life than your job and you should be able to experience those things.
