Abstract [en]

Combining work and family life can involve both challenges and demands for those who have to juggle competing demands of these different life spheres. Despite such challenges and demands having been associated with negative effects, possibilities for women and men to combine work and family life have also been linked to positive effects on various health-related outcomes. But with much of the research having focused on negative consequences, fewer studies have investigated how balancing work and family life along with time spent on doing different paid and unpaid tasks link to positive aspects of functioning such as psychological well-being.Specifically, this keynote summarizes research on work/life interference among women and men, detailing how the total workload of women and men and time spent on paid work, unpaid household tasks and child-care link topositive and negative health-related outcomes. Gender-specific findings are discussed to highlight potential variations between women and men in different contexts.
