Abstract

Work and leisure are commonly viewed as two distinct activities. The blurred and dynamic boundaries between work and leisure are present in many peoples’ everyday life, as well as in studies of boundaryless work and work-life balance. In this paper we examine the problems of rigid categorizations. Studying breaks at work may provide important information about human behaviour and organizational life, information we may partly overlook if we categorize them simply as non-work. Categories are part of the research
processes, but we can experiment with categories and even create
new ones, to add nuances and new perspectives to our studies.
