Title Daily recovery from work: The role of activities, effort and pleasure
Bibliographic information Jan.-Mar. 2011, Vol.25, No.1, p.55-74. Illus. 40 ref.
Abstract This study examines the effect of work and non-work activities and the perception of these activities on the daily recovery process using a 5-day diary study. Results indicate that pleasure in both domains increases the effects on recovery and, in the work domain, the combination of unpleasant and effortful work activities is negatively related to recovery. Findings indicate the importance of becoming involved in pleasant activities in both work and non-work domains.
