The current article focuses on psychological detachment from work. The author reviews current research that shows that individuals who are more detached from work when not at work have greater life satisfaction and less strain but are still just as engaged at work. High negative affect, job involvement, job stressors, and poor environmental conditions are related to less psychological detachment from work while not at work (or when not working).
