While often used in everyday exchanges, feeling vigorous at work, that is, individuals' feelings that they have physical strength, emotional energy, and cognitive liveliness, has hardly been subjected to any conceptual inquiry or empirical research. Also, while its opposite construct, burnout syndrome, has rece_ived ample theoretical and empirical attention, vigour at work has received very scanty mention. In this chapter, we pursue the following objectives: to present a positive psychological construct of vigour at work; and to explore the antecedents of vigour and its consequences, including vigour s possible effects on individuals 'mental and physical health, and job performance. We conclude by pointing out a few open research questions that concern the study of vigour at work.
