An Episodic Examination of Workplace Breaks and Self Regulatory Resource Restoration
Author ORCID Identifier
An event-based diary design was used to examine the role work breaks play in restoring momentary self-regulatory resources. Results showed that breaks restore self-regulatory resources. This study advanced workplace break research by adopting a methodologically sound design and providing empirical evidence on the importance of breaks for restoring self-regulatory resources.
