Working one day a week is the key to the best mental health, new research suggests.
Researchers at the universities of Cambridge and Salford set out to find a working pattern that would be most beneficial to employees' mental health.
Their findings reveal working any more than 8 hours a week provided no additional boosts to mental well-being.
The traditional model, in which everyone works around 40 hours a week, was never based on how much work was good for people. Their research suggests that micro-jobs provide the same psychological benefits as full-time jobs
