According to the doctor-therapist Elena Tikhomirova, people are not used to self study or sports, so more than 90 percent of Russians will start to idle that gradually leads to alcoholism, obesity, mental disorders.
“If one is interested in the work, and suddenly becomes one day off more, this will increase fears, phobias and neuroses, because he will think that something is wrong, and wait for a trick,” she added.
Do not agree with her psychiatrist, psychotherapist, candidate of medical Sciences Lev Perezhogin. He did not answer clearly on this idea, but suggested that people engaged in mental or highly qualified labor, will be grateful for incremental output, those who are accustomed to physical work, will be dissatisfied because their salary will decrease.
As concerns family relationships, continued Perezhogin, then loving people will be happy to spend the extra day off together as a family, where relations are bad, you will find extra time for quarrels and claims against each other.
