Strict bosses make workers feel guilty about exercise and lunch breaks


Workers feel pressurised into not taking a lunch break, feel guilty taking time to exercise and worry about making medical appointments during working hours, according to a new report published by the Central YMCA.

Called All Work and No Play?, the report also shows that one third of employees feel their boss is a poor role model.

The YMCA is now working with businesses to encourage “fit” workplaces where staff buddy up to encourage exercise and healthy eating.

  1. This is quite interesting as physical activity and health are usually placed at the bottom of the pile when it comes to priorities but it would save millions in sick days each year if we focused on it!
