Quick co-authored a comprehensive study of university sabbaticals, published in 2010 in the Journal of Applied Psychology, and found that professors tend to be less stressed and more likely to do better work after they return. The study suggested one way for employees to maximize their mental health: ignore their work calls, emails and all other reminders of the office. “There are real benefits if you can get away and put yourself in a different place,” Quick said.
