Abstract

The health emergency linked to the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and the consequent restrictions by governments in order to contain its further spread have forced millions of people around the world to adapt to new demands in their daily lives, work and studies.

Such reformulation of personal, work and social experiences have increased the perception of precariousness and instability, and has questioned the routines and the habits linked to the working and personal behaviours. Therefore, during the lockdown of the initial phase of the Covid-19 pandemic, a survey was developed and proposed in order to explore, on the one hand, the psychological impact of the restrictions on work activity and on the perceived quality of life and, on the other hand, the way in which people who were working from home, using their psychological resources, adapted or changed their daily habits and behaviors according to the limitations imposed by the pandemic.

The results obtained, through quantitative and qualitative analyses, have highlighted the different impact of the restrictions on the quality of life, work and perceived performance of the participants according to the different psychological resources used to cope with the uncertainty linked to the emergency period.
