Best and Worst
The higher you climb the corporate ladder, the higher your salary and benefits may go as well. But so can the hours and stress.

"We know that too many hours at work takes away hours that could be used for health-promoting activities," says Dr. Chosewood. "Often senior leaders have these very driven, Type-A personalities—something that's already associated with increased heart disease risk." Highly driven people may not keep up with health screenings or pay attention to symptoms.

Bottom line: Find the right position to suit your personality—and take care of yourself both on and off the clock—to be a productive, happier, and healthier employee.
