  • †Emotional exhaustion was assessed with a 5-item derivative of the emotional exhaustion subscale of the Maslach Burnout Inventory.

  • ‡Depression symptoms were measured with the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale.

  • §Subjective Happiness Scale was assessed with Lyubomirsky and Lepper’s Subjective Happiness Scale.

  • ¶Work–life balance was assessed with the work–life climate scale. Higher scores reflect higher levels of each construct, with the exception of work–life balance, in which case lower numbers reflect healthier work–life balance.
