Look, we all try our very best to stay as positive as possible at work.
But there’s no denying that every now and then, there’s absolutely nothing better than having a good ol’ whinge with your work wife.
Whether it be a venting session over Susan’s smelly lunches or just your standard “I wish it was Friday” whinge, let’s be honest – we’ve all been there.
But thanks to a study, all that complaining might not be as bad as you think.
In fact, it’s actually pretty good for your mental health and your productivity at work.
Vanessa Pouthier, a researcher from the University of Melbourne studied a team of health professionals at a US hospital over the course of a year.
Throughout the study, Dr Pouthier found that “griping” and joking at work can both help improve your mood and help build better relationships between colleagues.
See, it’s better for you and your work wife.
