This study among 85 individuals used a day reconstruction approach to examine whether workaholism moderates the relationship between daily activities during non-work time and daily well-being in the evening (evening happiness, momentary vigor before bedtime, and momentary recovery before bedtime). Specifically, it was hypothesized that daily work-related activities during the evening have a stronger negative relationship with daily well-being for employees high (versus low) in workaholism and that daily physical and social activities have a stronger positive relationship with well-being for employees high (versus low) in workaholism. The results of multilevel analyses largely supported the hypotheses for daily physical and work-related activities but not for social activities during non-work time. These findings imply that organizations should not encourage their employees and particularly those who score high on workaholism to work during non-work time and instead promote physical exercise.
