How To Channel Your Weekend Hobbies Into Weekday Productivity | Making a difference | Scoop.it
If you find Mondays particularly difficult, it may be due in part to how you spent your weekend. Lingering hangovers and lack of sleep aside, new research suggests that the hobbies we engage in over the weekend can impact our productivity during the workweek.
 

"Our main motive was to find out if people would find more benefit in certain activities based on their career," says the study’s lead author, Kevin Eschleman, an assistant psychology professor at San Francisco State University. The study, which surveyed 350 U.S. workers in different locations and industries who work Monday to Friday, was presented at the 2015 Academy of Management Annual Meeting.

 

Eschleman adds that he was also attempting to "better understand how people can use their free time to allow them to come back and feel energized and hopefully get more out of their work."
