The topic of this diploma thesis is to determine long term effects of different types of break schedules. The study contained 59 employees from the financial office in Linz. The sample was divided into ?younger people? (age 26-45) and ?older people? (age 46-65) and four different types of break schedules (stretching, progressive relaxation, binaural beats) and a control group. Measurements included heart rate and blood pressure as well as individual mental and physical condition. Data collection occurred over six weeks and was split into two weeks of practice and four weeks of post measurements. During time of practice both age groups showed less values in the MKSL-subtest ?adrenergic symptoms? compared to baseline-measurement and participants of stretching and progressive relaxation showed less values in the MKSL-subtest ?pain?. Younger participants reported more ?social support? compared to baseline-measurements and participants of binaural beats and progressive relaxation showed less values in the EBF-subtest ?work load?. Furthermore, participants of stretching control group showed higher values in the EBF-subtest ?recreative leisure time?. Younger participants showed higher value in the EPF-subtest ?preparation? (for recuperation) than older participants. At the beginning of the study older participants showed higher account in the EPF-subtest ?exhaustion? than younger which could be reduced during practice time. Furthermore, systolic and diastolic blood pressure decreased in comparison to baseline-measurements.
