Work/non-work boundaries can be defined as the dividing line between where work activities end, and non-work activities begin and vice versa. In this context, work refers to paid employment and its related activities – work tasks, meetings, travel, projects and so on; and non-work can be understood as the domain of activities not related to work – that is, outside of paid employment, such as, but not limited to, community events, housework, interactions with family and friends. In the literature, they may also be referred to as work–family, work–home, work–leisure or work–life boundaries.
