Work-life balance needed for recovery from job stress

Detaching from work–mentally, physically, and electronically–is the key to recovery from job stress during non work hours, according to Kansas State University researcher YoungAh Park, assistant professor of Psychology.

“Research has shown that employees who unwind from work stress during off-work times are better at showing proactive behaviors to solve problems and are more engaged in their work,” Park said. “In the long term, ensuring employee recovery from job stress by detaching themselves from work is beneficial for sustaining employees’ well-being and job performance capabilities.”
