  3. Every human being has the capacity to work for certain number of hours per day. If one works more than that it will either be physical exhaustion or mental exhaustion. Usually this is around 6-8 hours per day depending on the type of work.
    In this case since your work is white collar job you can work maximim 6-7 hours per day with 10 minutes interval every hour.You must take weekly off.You must have minimum 6 hours sleep per day. You must eat in time. And see your family doctor every year for any stress related problems
