Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 5:30AM - 10:00AM

Does your job make you happy and you love it so much that you’re smiling all day? Well, then this study isn’t for you. The New York Post says that people who have to force a fake smile at work all day are more likely to drink after work.

The study was conducted by Penn State and the University of Buffalo. Penn State psychology professor Alicia Grandey told ABC News, “Faking and suppressing emotions with customers [is] related to drinking beyond the stress of the job or feeling negatively.”

She continued by saying, “the more they have to control negative emotions at work, the less they are able to control their alcohol intake after work.”
