• Do me a favor. If you’re at work, look up from your monitor and take a look at your colleague sitting nearby? Is he or she a soul-crushing idiot jagoff? He or she is? Of course they are. Well, I hate to break it to you, but that person is shortening your life. According to a study conducted by researchers at Tel Aviv University in Israel, a positive relationship with co-workers not only improves job satisfaction, but will help you live longer. From the AP report: “Peer social support, which could represent how well a participant is socially integrated in his or her employment context, is a potent predictor of the risk of all causes of mortality,” the researchers said in the study reported in the journal Health Psychology, which is published by the American Psychological Association. Amazing. Not only are they ruining your life on a day-to-day basis, they are ensuring you have less days to actually live. When you think about it, it’s not surprising. Co-workers are, more often than not, real pains in the ass. [Yahoo!]
