comment Expressing “don't work too hard”
I'd imagine that there being no phrase for "Don't work too hard" in the Japanese language comes from the same attitudinal causes as there being a such thing as death from working too hard. But I live here, so I have a lot of exposure to the culture.

Exactly. I've tried to say this exact phrase three or four times, and every time I ask a native how to say it, I get a good three or four minutes of confused looks before they get the meaning/intent.
