Job-Stress Recovery: Core Findings, Future Research Topics, and Remaining Challenges
MetadataShow full item record
In this piece, Dr. Sonnentag defines recovery, and presents core findings and future directions of recovery research. For example, meta-analytic evidence suggests that mentally detaching from work is important, stressful work makes this detachment difficult, but physical activities, relaxation, and opportunities to experience mastery can help. Dr. Sonnentag also highlights specific challenges to recovery (e.g., long work hours) and potential points of intervention to overcome these challenges (e.g., setting aside small periods of time).
