Flexibility at Work Is Important for Maintaining Health

Flexibility Is Healthy in Many Ways

Flexibility in the workplace could be just as good for your health as flexibility in the body, new research has found. A flexible work life, including telecommuting and job shares, is good for your health as researchers found that if people have the ability to work from home and to compress work weeks, they are more likely to make healthier lifestyle choices, to exercise more and to sleep better.

It makes sense to me, but it's sad that most of us do not have this flexibility without quitting our jobs completely. So maybe, just maybe, you should print this out and leave it on your boss's desk and see what happens (wink, wink).
