The term ‘workaholic’ is sometimes used to refer to anyone who works hard, but in reality it refers to a state of affairs with frightening effects on mental health and interpersonal relationships.

This is what psychotherapist Ana Jovanovic, tells us, by analyzing that the phenomenon takes place when the passion for work and personal development turns into obsession, negatively affecting body and mind.

The Nobel Coaching and Tutoring Mental Health Specialist shares the 5 signs that something is wrong with our work obsession.

“The workaholic feels anxious when not working”

The workaholic seeks pleasure from the act itself and not the result of his work, which gives him a sense of relief and meaning. If you are not feeling well in your spare time anyway, Jovanovic suggests, it’s time to consult the experts.

“The workaholic always turns work into his first priority”

If you put the job above your family, your spare time, and even your physical health, things will not look promising. “The workman puts work above all else. And while working consistently can be very difficult, it’s even harder when not working, ”explains the expert.

“The workaholic leaves little to no time for other aspects of life”

Leisure is not at all an option for workaholics, as they try to keep working and not have gaps in their schedule. “They create networks of relationships where others need them all the time,” Jovanovic points out, and they can’t spend time with family, friends, hobbies or even themselves.

“The Workaholic doesn’t understand the problem”

As with most types of addiction, the workman will never claim to suffer from it. Instead, he will blame the circumstances, his demanding boss, the competitive nature of his job, etc. “Working long hours is a socially acceptable way of overcoming the other major problems of your life,” Jovanovic points out.

“The workaholic is not happy”

People who are passionate about their work and devote a good portion of their energy to what they do are not workaholics. The way to understand the workaholic, the expert explains, is from the simple fact that he is not happy: “he feels an overwhelming need to work overtime” in order to “nourish the negative emotions that arise when he is not working” …

How much does a Formula 1 car cost?

Formula 1 is the “cradle” of motor sports, with original cars carrying the latest technology.

Teams of engineers, technicians and designers work through the night at factories studying solutions and testing components that they hope will give them a competitive edge. The F1 is a sport judged in the details, which means every millimeter counts.

Top teams, the ones fighting for wins and titles, usually have the biggest budget. This means they can spend more money on research, development (R&D) and testing.

Of course, there are also teams with significantly lower budgets that have made it to the top, such as the Brawn GP in 2009 (Jenson Button Drivers ‘Championship and manufacturers) and Renault in 2005, 2006 (2 Drivers’ Championships with Fernando Alonso and two manufacturers’ championships). On the other hand, the enormous funds that Toyota (2002 to 2009) and Honda (2006 to 2008) had with their own teams were not enough to give them a leading role.

Every year the cars are evolving, becoming faster, using new technologies.

But how much can a Formula 1 car cost? No one can answer this question precisely, as the cost of research and development cannot be determined.

However, an estimate can be made of how much the average components of the car cost ,as well as the overall cost.

So according to a WTF1 survey, the average cost of a F1 car is € 6.8 million.

This amount is as follows:

Front Spoiler / Tip: 170,000 euros

Floor: 66,000 euros

Steering wheel: 56,700 euros

Software / Telemetry: 84,000 euros

Rear Spoiler / DRS: 107,000 euros

Braking system: 170,000 euros

Exhaust system: 195,000 euros

Gearbox: 850,000 euros

Monocok (chassis): 1.13 million euros

Hybrid engine: EUR 4 million

So you understand that every time a car gets involved in an accident or ends up in barriers, the cost of repairs can reach a disproportionate amount, depending on the extent of the damage …
