Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? It is more enjoyable to have a job where you work only three days a week for long hours than to have a job where you work five days a week for shorter hours.

People tend to have different expectations out of a job, such as personal satisfactation, a decent pay and social recognition and respect. When it comes to a question of that whether it is more enjoyable to have a job where individuals work five days a week for short hours than that work only three days a week for long hours. I, personally, am affirmative that working 5 days a week for shorter hours are healthier and happier. Foremost, working overtime in one day can pose a great threat to individuals lives and jeopardize their health. A large number of jobs are sedentary, including lawyers, accountants, and bank clerks, which can lead to backache, dizzy and lacking of energy. And if they have to sitting in front of the screen for more than 10 hours a day, so much screen time would also do bad for their eyes. Other more intensive and high pressure profeesions, like a stock brocker or a financial analyst, may have chances to suffer from sudden death, when they work for more than 10 hours a day. Thus, long-time working in a day causes physical damage and lacking of energy in working place. Furthermore, working five days a week for short horurs means that individuals have more spare time to do other important and meaningful things. If workers sacrifices their free time to boring and repetitive works, it might give them high pressure and a negative attitude which is the most unwanted secenaro in working environment. In additon they would not have oppotunities to relax and connect with their families and friends after work. However, when poeple spend some qulality time to bond with families and friends, they would feel more happier and productive in both life and work setting. In conclusion, working five days a week indicates that individuals are less likely to suffer both mental and phisical problems, and they will have more quality time with their friends and families alike.Thus this regular working sechdule can improve their productivity.
