Peter Fleming is a professor of business and society at Cass Business School, City University London. He is a columnist for the Guardian and the author of The Mythology of Work. Work is how many define themselves and gives them purpose and direction in their lives. But like anything, there are limits. All work and no play can lead to serious health consequence. Research shows that more than 12 hours of inactivity per day (like sitting at a desk) can have similar effects as smoking. Peter Fleming explains how the myth of excessive work is spread and what is a more realistic expectation of work.
