The relationship between work-related stress and ill healthis undoubtedly underpinned by many contributing factors;however, perhaps the most critical mechanism is inade-quate psychological and physicalrecovery from work(Fritz, Sonnentag, Spector, & McInroe,2010). When peo-ple go to work, they are confronted with many differentkinds of physical, cognitive, and emotional demands.
