Workers likely to experience career burnout at the age of 32, study finds

A poll of 2,000 employed adults found nearly a third have felt like they cannot go on at some point in their career due to being stressed and exhausted. More than half of those put this down to trying to do too much (52 percent) while 58 percent blamed it on working longer hours. Not taking enough annual leave (39 percent), feeling like you always have to be on (47 percent) and pressure to go above and beyond the call of duty to keep your job (37 percent) also contribute to burnout.

Half of those who have felt stressed have quit as a result, while 29 percent would consider taking unpaid leave, according to the study by flexible workspace provider TOG (The Office Group).

But while working from home has been hailed as the solution to improving work/life balance, since lockdown it has resulted in many working more hours than ever.

More than half of those polled said they had been working outside of their contractual hours since lockdown, putting in an additional 59 hours – or the equivalent of seven working days – over the last five months.

TOG partnered with consultant psychiatrist Dr Sarah Vohra, also known as ‘The Mind Medic’, to share advice on how to prevent burnout and spot the signs of heightened stress and exhaustion at work.

She said: “With almost a third of people saying lockdown has brought them closer to burnout, there is no question the pandemic has greatly impacted the nation’s collective mental health.

“Companies must put defences in place and guard against elements which might cause stress and anxiety, and looking forward, they must make robust changes to ensure employees are protected, particularly during times of uncertainty.”

The study also found that one in three of those polled blamed the lockdown for getting them closer to burning out.

Employees feel working longer hours due to having their workstation close to them (31 percent) and the lack of social interaction (27 percent) both contributed to making the time particularly difficult.

But it also emerged that being young doesn’t necessarily mean being carefree, with almost six in 10 Gen Z workers feeling the strain of the ‘always on’ culture.

The study, carried out via OnePoll, found that in a bid to lower their stress levels, one in five workers have turned to meditation or yoga to relax outside of work.

And 22 percent want their workplace to offer mindfulness and wellness classes to fight burnout.

Olly Olsen, co-founder of TOG (The Office Group), said: “We feel strongly about constantly re-evaluating what people need from their office spaces, especially as we continue to navigate the impact of the pandemic.

“At our workspace in United House, Notting Hill, we’ve incorporated the meditation lounge to offer our members a dedicated place to switch off and take time – ensuring they can re-focus and stay productive.

“Putting wellbeing at the heart of workspace design doesn’t have to be a huge undertaking.

“Providing natural light plus simple additions like breakout areas, comfortable seating and air purifying plants, can make all the difference.”

Following the findings, TOG and its wellness provider, OPO, are offering free meditation sessions for everyone, including non-members, at www.theofficegroup.com/burnout.

DR SARAH VOHRA’S TIPS TO AVOIDING BURNOUT

1. Make clear distinctions between your day and night-time routines

Whether you are commuting to the office, or working from home, make sure you have consistent wake and sleep times. This helps regulate your body’s 24-hour circadian rhythm or sleep/wake cycle.

2. Set aside ‘must-dos’ for the day and write them down

Studies show that the more tasks we commit to simultaneously, the lower our attention span is. This can affect how quickly we complete our tasks, with time often wasted switching between them, making us less efficient and more prone to making mistakes.

3. Ensure exposure to natural sunlight

Your 24-hour body clock relies on repeated patterns of loss of light (night) and return of light (day) to help reset it. Studies show that workers in workplaces with windows not only had significantly more sunlight exposure during work hours, but also slept an average of 46 minutes more each night.



Ivanka Trump U-turn: First Daughter's unbelievable claim about future career laid bare

Ivanka Trump is US President Donald Trump’s second eldest child Trump siblings. She has risen to prominence during her father’s first presidential term. Currently described as being an “advisor to the president” many are still confused by Ivanka’s role in government.

According to the White House website, “she focuses on the education and economic empowerment of women and their families as well as job creation and economic growth through workforce development, skills training and entrepreneurship”.

Before taking on the role, she worked for the family real estate business along with her brothers Don Trump Jr and Eric Trump.

It is a cause that many members of the Trump family have been involved with, and one in which Ivanka herself said she had been destined for since “inception” during a 2010 HuffPost interview.

When reporter Baruch Shemtov asked when it was that she became interested in the career, Ivanka made the bizarre claim.

She said: “I don’t know if there was ever a point in my life when I thought that I would take another road.

“Pretty much since inception was this something I wanted to do.

“I think part of it is hereditary.

“I think part of it is that my family for so many generations on my mother’s side as well as my father’s have been involved in development, building and engineering, construction.

JUST INIvanka Trump SAVAGED as husband flouts coronavirus measures

Her presence there caused a social media firestorm, with many criticising the White House for sending an unelected member of government to discuss issues on behalf of the US.

It left the White House defending her corner, branding the criticisms as bullying.

Since Trump’s inauguration in 2017 Ivanka has been given credit anonymously for encouraging the president to launch retaliatory strikes on Syria for its use of chemical weapons.

Her influence is also thought to have curtailed the US’ policy of separating migrant families at the US-Mexico border.

Yet, where her opinion seems to have faltered is in the president’s climate policies.

Trump has continued to cut environmental regulations throughout his first term.

He withdrew the US from the Paris Climate Agreement in 2017, much to the dismay of Ivanka.

There are areas where Ivanka appears to support her father, however.

In July, they were both criticised after they endorsed a Hispanic food company on social media.

It came after the head of Goya Foods expressed his support for Trump, prompting calls to boycott the company.

Their promotion of the brand immediately raised concerns over ethics violations.

As an employee of the government, Ivanka is barred from using public office to endorse products or bolster personal business interests.



Prince Edward heartbreak: Royal mocked with painful labels after major career U-turn

Prince Edward followed in his elder brothers’ footsteps when he joined the military shortly after leaving Cambridge University with his BA in History in 1986. Tuition for his studies at the prestigious institution had been paid by the Royal Marines on condition of the royal serving after his degree and he duly enlisted to undergo the 12-month training period. But after only a third of the training, the future Earl of Wessex dropped out, sparking accusations of cowardice and mocking labels from the international press.

Speaking to Channel 5 documentary ‘Edward&Sophie: The Reluctant Royals?’, former royal press secretary Dickie Arbiter said: “The newspapers were up in arms. 

“They called him all sorts of things, they called him a weakling, they called him a coward. It was pretty nasty.”

Narrator Glynis Barber added: “He just felt he was going along on a railway line and suddenly, the rails weren’t there anymore.

“Prince Edward was at a crossroad. He needed to find a role for himself.

A friend of Her Majesty told author Ben Pimlott: “‘It was a terrible mistake,’ says one of the Monarch’s friends. ‘She was against it. But one of her faults is that she can’t say no.’

“‘There was not a single courtier,’ one recalls, ‘who did not think it was a mistake.’

“Their advice was confounded by youthful enthusiasm and the Queen’s maternal indulgence.”

Prince Edward continued to seek to establish himself in the entertainment business, working as a production assistant for musical composer Andrew Lloyd Webber.

He later launched a production company, Ardent Productions, which focused on the creation and documentaries but he was later forced to step down after allegedly breaking an agreement Prince Charles had reached with broadcasters about Prince William’s privacy while at university.

Jamie Oliver net worth: TV chef has made an incredible fortune in 20-year career

Jamie Oliver, 45, is a well known television chef and cookbook author. He started his career in cooking shortly after leaving school. This is how much money he has made over the years.

Jamie had his first job in the cooking industry working as a pastry chef at Antonio Carluccio’s Neal Street restaurant.

He picked up skills on cooking Italian food before moving to The River Café in Fulham, where he worked as a sous-chef.

The popular chef was first noticed when appearing in a BBC documentary that was being filmed at the restaurant in 1997.

The appearance kick-started his career in the media and he was given a BBC show named The Naked Chef.

This ran for three series and Jamie topped up his bank account with a bestselling cookbook of the same name.

In 2000, Jamie was selected to be the face of Sainsbury’s, appearing in it’s advertising campaign.

He worked with the brand until 2011 and it has been reported he was paid a staggering £1.2million per year for the deal.

The chef continued sharing his latest recipes on the small screen working on television shows including Jamie’s Kitchen, Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution and Jamie’s 15 Minute Meals.

However, many of the branches have now been closed after the company entered administration in 2019.

As well as earning money from his career, Jamie has a small fortune in property.

He is the owner of some pricey pads, including a 16th century Essex home worth £6million.



Trump impeachment witness claims speaking out against POTUS ended 21-year military career

Lt Colonel Alexander Vindman described the experience as being subjected to bullying, intimidation and retaliation. He even compared the current Trump administration to the dictatorship of the Soviet Union. Lt Colonel Alexander Vindman, 45, wrote a scathing op-ed in The Washington Post on Saturday – the first day of his retirement.

The lieutenant colonel said: “At no point in my career or life have I felt our nation’s values under greater threat and in more peril than at this moment.”

“Our national government during the past few years has been more reminiscent of the authoritarian regime my family fled more than 40 years ago than the country I have devoted my life to serving.”

He also notes that any opposition to the President is treated with no respect at all.

And it led the Lt Colonel to compare President Trump’s approach as to how Dictators would deal with their critics.

He said: “Our citizens are being subjected to the same kinds of attacks tyrants launch against their critics and political opponents.”

“Those who choose loyalty to American values and allegiance to the Constitution over devotion to a mendacious president and his enablers are punished.”

Alexander Vindman is an Iraq War veteran and Purple Heart recipient who until February served as the top Ukraine policy officer on the National Security Council staff.

The official notes that the Lt Colonel was the first one fired from the White House when it ended.

The official said: “The president said it was a ‘total disgrace’ what he did.”

Lt Colonel Vindman said: “The circumstances of my departure might have been more public, yet they are little different from those of dozens of other lifelong public servants who have left this administration with their integrity intact but their careers irreparably harmed.”

His retirement was announced last month.

This took place after his promotion was approved by the Pentagon, but before it was sent to the White House for approval.

President Trump was only the third President in history to be impeached and Lt Vindman was crucial in testifying and providing information.

Lt Vindman had told congressional lawmakers that he raised alarms about Trump’s call with Ukraine’s president, in which Trump appeared to make US aid to the country dependent upon an investigation of Democratic political rival Joe Biden and his son’s business dealings.

He said: “I did not think it was proper to demand that a foreign government investigate a US citizen.”

Lt Vindman now says he has no idea what will come after his retirement.

Wife of John Saxon remembers late husband

For decades, we’ve seen actor John Saxon’s face and enjoyed his films. His wife knew the real man behind the movies. 

“I was like, ‘oh my gosh, I know this person on a cellular level,'” said Gloria Martel.

Martel said it didn’t take long to fall in love with Saxon. 

“He started working when he was 17 in a town he didn’t know anyone,” said Martel, referring to Saxon’s long film career. 

Saxon starred in Enter the Dragon with close friend Bruce Lee. He stepped into horror with Black Christmas and three Nightmare on Elm Street films.

“They did hire John to attract money and other actors for the first Nightmare,” said Martel. 

In recent years, Saxon and Martel lived at the Heritage at Brentwood where a festival of Saxon’s films was once held. 

A few days ago, Saxon died at 83.

“Once he passed away, I got calls from all over the world,” said Martel. “I realized fans need a place to go if they wanted to see his resting place.”

Martel told News4 she reached out to Shannon Lee, daughter of Saxon’s good friend Bruce Lee.

“She said ‘yes.’ She and her mom were happy John would join Bruce and [Bruce’s late son] Brandon,” said Martel. 

Martel said Saxon’s ashes will be placed at Lake View Cemetery in Seattle, the same place Bruce Lee is laid to rest. 

“I think it’s very fitting they be together,” said Martel. “I have to say the reason I can smile and talk about John, I don’t feel that he’s gone. I can’t believe it myself.”

Martel is proud of the fact that through starring with lunch box heroes, wise-cracking horror icons, and friends like Bruce Lee, the fandom of the films her husband made ensures his career work lives forever.

Agnes Scott College announces virtual classes

DECATUR, GA (CBS46)—Agnes Scott College is the latest school to announce its Fall 2020 semester plans.

According to an email sent to faculty and students, the school will offer online classes only during the fall semester amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the email, “Over the past several weeks, COVID-19 cases have been increasing dramatically in many states, with Georgia reporting a seven-day average of more than 1,000 new cases per day. Nationally, we have also seen a sharp rise in the percentage of young adults testing positive. These sobering trends caused us to reassess our plans.”

School officials noted if it is safe to do so, they will start to bring students back on campus, beginning with first year students.

The college’s current plans call for:

• Classes to be offered in a remote format that will begin on August 20.

• Summer workshops for faculty and staff focused on online course design and advanced use of remote technology.

• Training for the tutoring center staff.

• Student support from the college’s Academic Advising and Accessible Education teams.

• New library resources for supporting remote student research.

• Thanks to the generosity of a private foundation, the hiring of three new Office for Internships and Career Development career coaches to lead career communities and to support the professional success of students through online internships and jobs and graduate programs suited to their interests.

• Support for the physical, mental health and well-being of students by offering twenty-four hour, seven days a week services and resources through our Wellness Center, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and Student Health Services via telehealth appointments, and Religious and Spiritual Life.

• Use of the Scottie Emergency Fund for students who need supplemental assistance with essential needs—i.e. food, transportation, medication, laptops.

• Continued planning for an in-person, on-campus experience in the spring.

Officials are still working out details for their fall sports program.

 Tuition for the 2020-2021 academic year will remain at the announced level, the school announced.

“Your tuition supports the unique academic experience at Agnes Scott and the faculty and staff who deliver it. This includes the work of faculty and staff as described above to provide a rich, varied and always evolving academic program, and the many support services that enhance your learning experience and ensure your success. In addition to those already mentioned, many other offices will continue to assist you in registering for courses, receiving financial aid, paying your bills, and much more”, the release stated.
