Investigating the role of different breaks from work for well-being and health among ageing teachers


This project has three major aims. The first aim is to get an overview on internal recovery occurring during working days in older teachers (compared to others) via a cross-sectional study in a large sample of teachers, including headmasters. The second aim is to examine short-term processes of recovery during and after work in detail (i.e., at-work breaks, evenings and weekends) and the interplay of internal and external (occurring after work) recovery in a smaller subsample of teachers using a one-week diary study design. The third aim is to identify strategies to strengthen and to prolong beneficial effects of long work breaks (i.e., vacations) with the help of a smartphone application in a small sample of teachers. The overall aim of this research project is to understand recovery processes during working days, off-job time and vacations as well as their interplay. By generating and disseminating new insights on recovery, we strive to preserve and improve well-being and job performance and to prolong healthy working careers of ageing employees. The project is financed by the Finnish Work Environment Fund (2017–2019).
