Unstable work life leads to future mental health problems in youth

Published

on

By

Barcelona [Spain], March 5 (ANI): The findings of a new study conducted by researchers from the Center for Research in Occupational Health suggests that a precarious, unstable initiation by young people towards working life is associated with poorer mental health in the future.
The research published in the journal BMJ Open was authored by Amaya Ayala-Garcia, Laura Serra, and Monica Ubalde-Lopez and was conducted by the Center for Research in Occupational Health (CISAL, a joint group of UPF and the Hospital del Mar Medical Research Institute) in Barcelona, Spain.
Since the 1990s, Spain has been among the European countries with the lowest employment rates, which are accentuated in the young active population. Moreover, in 2017, Spain had the highest proportion of temporary contracts and one of the highest rates of precariousness. Previous studies show that unemployment, temporary employment, and job insecurity are related to a higher incidence of mental disorders.
This study evaluates the relationship between the various possible pathways at the start of working life with future absenteeism due to mental disorders in a sample of salaried workers. The cohort study is based on employees aged between 18 and 28 years, residents in Catalonia, who presented at least one episode of absenteeism as a result of mental disorders between 2012 and 2014.
“It is a novel approach that evaluates how transitions between types of contracts, situations of employment/unemployment, and periods without social security coverage can affect the evolution of mental health in the younger working population entering the labor market. It also investigates the possible effect of the public or private ownership of the companies in which the subjects have begun their working life”, says Monica Ubalde-Lopez, study coordinator, currently a researcher at the Barcelona Institute for Global Health (ISGlobal), a center driven by the “la Caixa” Foundation.
Amaya Ayala-Garcia, the first author of the article, says that “to evaluate job stability, we apply a statistical technique that has allowed us to take an initial photo of the previous 10 years of working life, in which we identified four different patterns of participation in the labor market”. These four patterns are a stable, permanent job, increasing stability (a decrease in the number of transitions between temporary contracts and lack of social security coverage towards permanent contracts), unstable employment with varying types of contracts, and finally, a fourth pattern characterized by later entry to the job market. “To approach the severity of mental disorders, we measured the cumulative days of absenteeism due to mental disorders over three years. Thus, we detected a more or less favorable evolution over time”, she adds.
The authors of the article noted that people with a more stable working life, for example increasing job stability, tended to have a more favorable future of accumulation of days absent due to mental disorders (fewer days accumulated) than people who had a more unstable working life. They also noted that having worked in large companies at the start of their working life was associated with better mental health later on.
“Job insecurity among young people can be seen in rates of temporary and unemployment, which has also greatly increased with covid. Our results show that a precarious labor market may be shaping the future mental health of the young working population. Therefore, future public health policies should address this problem in order to prevent long-term absenteeism”, they conclude. (ANI)

Olivia Wilde shares Florence Pugh’s first look in her movie ‘Don’t Worry Darling’

Published

By

Washington [US], March 5 (ANI): American actor and director Olivia Wilde, on Friday (local time) dropped Florence Pugh’s first look with a sneak peek at her upcoming Harry Styles starrer movie ‘Don’t Worry Darling’.
Wilde hopped on to her Instagram to share a glimpse of her much-awaited romantic flick, ‘Don’t Worry Darling’.
The picture sees a close-up look of an anxious-looking Pugh framed in the centre with her hands up in the air and several men in the background, seemingly approaching her from behind.
Alongside the picture, the 36-year-old wrote, “Don’t worry,” referring to a play at the movie’s title.

According to People Magazine, in the movie, Pugh plays the role of a 1950s housewife living with her husband in a utopian experimental community who starts to stress that his glamorous company might be concealing disturbing secrets.
Harry Styles will play her husband, whereas Wilde, Nick Kroll and Chris Pine will appear in supporting roles.
After wrapping up the movie earlier this month, Wilde shared a tributary message for the whole cast and crew of the flick.
The actor shared a heartfelt note for her rumoured beau Styles, appreciating him for to appear in a female-centric film which most actors refuse to do.
She wrote, “No joke, it is harrrrrd to find actors who recognize why it might be worth it to allow for a woman to hold the spotlight. Enter: @harrystyles, our ‘Jack. Not only did he relish the opportunity to allow for the brilliant @florencepugh to hold center stage as our ‘Alice’, but he infused every scene with a nuanced sense of humanity.”
“He didn’t have to join our circus, but he jumped on board with humility and grace, and blew us away every day with his talent, warmth, and ability to drive backwards,” she added.
Wilde also praised Pugh for her captivating performance in the movie by posting a delightful picture featuring both of them hugging each other on the set of the movie.
“To work with an actor as talented and brave as @florencepugh is any director’s dream. I will forever be grateful for you, Flo. It was an honor to be your captain. Can’t wait for the world to see the astonishing work you’ve put into this movie. Tom Cruise run + Meryl skills = THE FLO,” she wrote.
The 1950s-set film is written by Wilde and Katie Silberman, Wilde’s Booksmart collaborator which stars Florence Pugh as a housewife who unveils a distressing truth while living in an isolated community in a US state. Styles, who stars as Pugh’s character’s husband, replaced original star Shia LaBeouf shortly before filming started. (ANI)

Khloe Kardashian shares her strategy to ease stress and anxiety

Published

By

Washington [US], March 5 (ANI): American reality TV star Khloe Kardashian shared her self-care strategy and how she eases out stress and anxiety in an interview on Friday (local time).
The Good American co-founder has her own ways of giving herself the care that is required to manage her mental health between balancing hours-long Zoom meetings and raising her two-year-old daughter True.
In an interview with People Magazine, Khloe revealed that she carves out time for daily workouts to help ease stress and anxiety.
“For me, working out is a huge part of my life and it clears my head. It makes me feel strong and accomplished. That little bit of self-care is what I need.”
The 36-year-old star explains that to keep her mental balance on point, she makes sure to keep a check on her fitness regime.
“It’s a stress reliever. I get anxiety sometimes. It takes all of that away. A by-product of working out is you look good. But my main focus isn’t about, ‘Oh, I need to lose 5 lbs.’ I don’t care about the scale. I feel energized and I’m ready to chase my daughter around for the day. It gives you that little oomph that I need,” she told.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star also revealed that during the pandemic, working from home proved to be a challenging task for her at first, but she learnt it’s best to create boundaries to separate her work from her personal life after a period of time
“When I do Zoom meetings, I go in a ‘professional’ room and not just sit on my bed. I still have to remember, ‘Let’s put on a little makeup, change the scenery and do Zoom in my office so it still feels like you’re having those productive meetings,” the star said.
She added, “The other day I had a three-hour Zoom and I felt so bad because it can be so repetitive and unmotivating at times. So we have to learn. I make sure to carve out time for my daughter and myself, whether it is working out or taking a little walk.”
Khloe also admitted that before launching her 90s inspired denims, she used to sport her ‘sweat and workout clothes’ often, but now she has founded a reason to ease her body back to jeans.
“During the pandemic, thinking about throwing on a pair of jeans that were super tight has not been something I’ve been excited to do. It’s probably sad to say, but I really have not put on a dress or something really fancy in about a year. So this gives me an excuse to wear denim and still be super comfortable,” she told.
People Magazine reported that the mother of one also disclosed that wearing a pair of good heals is what makes her feel more confident of herself.
“Even if it’s a smaller, shorter heel, I think the way that you walk, you exude a little more confidence and you own the room a little more.” (ANI)

Washington [US], March 5 (ANI): The American football quarterback Aaron Rodgers called his engagement to American actor Shailene Woodley the best thing that happened to him in the last year.
Leaving fans shocked, a few days after ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ actor confirmed her engagement with football quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the NFL star gave his first appearance on an Instagram Live session Zenith Watches CEO Julien Tornare this week.
According to People Magazine, Rodgers has been named the company’s North American ambassador in the month of February, this year. Following this, a fun session on Instagram was organized by the company for his fans.
When asked about his past year, Green Bay Packers quarterback, without mentioning Woodley’s name, told that his relationship with her is what turned out to be the best thing in his last year.
“I’m recently engaged, so been enjoying that part of my life. Obviously, that’s the best thing that’s happened to me in the last year,” the athlete said.
People Magazine reported that this conversation marked his first comments about romance with Woodley on a public platform.
Although, back in 2020, during the NFL Honors, Rodgers shocked his fans when he accepted the NFL MVP award and disclosed that he was engaged.
“It’s an honour to win this award for the third time. 2020 was definitely a crazy year filled with lots of change and growth, some amazing memorable moments. 180 straight days of having my nose hair scraped, playing for very little fans or no stands the entire season,” he said at the time, before revealing the big news: “I got engaged,” he said.
Speaking about his future, the star also said that his “next great challenge will be being a father”, adding that he is in the age group where a lot of his close friends from high school and college are fathers at present and have families of their own.
A source close to the stars told People Magazine that, Rodgers and Woodley’s relationship is a “total whirlwind romance.”
“He’s acting very happy. They’re very content and peaceful. It’s nice to see,” said the source.
The source added, “No one has gotten a ‘save the date’ card yet.’ I’m sure they’ll make plans, but they’re really being quiet about it for right now. That’s why this is such a surprise to everyone.”
Another thing that the football star said he is amped up for the near future is his stretch as a guest host on ‘Jeopardy!’.
“I rocked it on Jeopardy! for my two weeks on there. I loved it, I had a blast. It was one thing I was really looking forward to after the season,” said Rodgers, who shared that, he always wanted to come back … and play” after appearing as a ‘Celebrity Jeopardy!’ contestant in 2015. (ANI)

Ana de Armas cried when she saw herself in Marilyn Monroe wigs

Published

By

Washington [US], March 5 (ANI): Hollywood star Ana de Armas recently revealed that she cried the first time she saw herself dressed in Marilyn Monroe wigs for her upcoming film ‘Blonde’.
According to People magazine, the actress’ transformation into Marilyn Monroe took three and a half hours a day in the hair and makeup chair for the new biopic ‘Blonde’. Judging by photos of her filming in a platinum blonde wig and sultry red lipstick that made headlines in September 2019, Ana de Armas’ transformation into Marilyn Monroe for her upcoming Netflix film is uncanny.
While speaking about her new role as an Estee Lauder global brand ambassador, de Armas, revealed that the transformation wasn’t all that glamorous behind the scenes.
She said, “I had to go bald every day, because with the blonde wigs… Marilyn went through different shades of blonde from golden to really platinum, so for these wigs that are beautifully made, you can’t have anything dark underneath, so we had to make a bald cap every single day from my forehead to around my whole head.”
De Armas added, “It was like, three and a half hours every day of makeup. I think I actually cried the first time I saw the wigs on. Probably because I was terrified.”
The 32-year-old actor said that it was a “gift” to play Monroe in the biographical drama, which also stars Adrien Brody and is set to release later this year.
As per People magazine, back in January, de Armas had shared that it took her months of work to perfect the legendary screen siren’s signature breathy voice. (ANI)
