In response, different sets of pandemic containment measures have been employed by several countries. The effectiveness of non-pharmacological measures such as home confinement hinges on adherence by the population. While adherence to these social distancing measures appears to be high in general, adherence might be more challenging for some individuals and complying with these measures might become more difficult the longer they last. Here, we suggest that boredom and self-control are two important psychological concepts for understanding the challenges the COVID-19 pandemic containment measures pose to individuals. To maximize adherence to these measures, we propose to consider the specific and combined effects of boredom and self-control demands elicited by this situation on subsequent behavior.</dcterms:abstract> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/50890/3/Martarelli_2-1e55f5wesjhgk7.pdf"/> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2020-09-18T12:26:05Z</dcterms:available> <dc:contributor>Martarelli, Corinna S.</dc:contributor> <dc:rights>Attribution 4.0 International</dc:rights> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/50890"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:issued>2020-12</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/50890/3/Martarelli_2-1e55f5wesjhgk7.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Martarelli, Corinna S.</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:title>Too bored to bother? : Boredom as a potential threat to the efficacy of pandemic containment measures</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Wolff, Wanja</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
