Self-care practices and relationships with vitality and health complaints in self-employed workers

Published: 10-06-2024

This study with 290 self-employed workers shows that individualsā€˜ engagement in self-care practices positively relates to their well-being. We explored various types of self-care practices and found that physical activities showed the strongest correlation with well-being outcomes. Drawing on the theory of planned behavior, the results further revealed that strong intentions towards practicing self-care positively predicted subsequent self-care practice engagement, even when self-employed workers were faced with entrepreneurial stressors as potential barriers.
