Summary

Understanding Stress: Transaction Model and Managing Stress at Work

  • Stress is viewed as a transaction between an individual and their environment, involving stressors triggering a response.
  • Stressors vary by timing, frequency, duration, and intensity, while stress involves multiple systems and is the result of this transaction.
  • The transaction model includes primary appraisal (relevance of stressor), secondary appraisal (resources to cope), and ongoing reappraisal.
  • The concept of good stress (eustress) and bad stress (dystress) was introduced by Selye and later developed by researchers as challenge and hindrance stressors.
  • Evidence from meta-analyses by Lepine et al (2005) and Podsakoff et al (2007) suggests that stress is not always bad.
  • Individual approaches to stress management include physical activity, mindfulness, sleep, and time management.
  • Regular physical activity substantially improves the ability to handle stress, with most guidelines recommending 150+ minutes of moderate exercise per week.
  • Mindfulness has solid evidence of improving mental and physical health, self-regulation, and work outcomes.
  • Inadequate sleep has been linked to numerous health issues and lower job performance, emphasizing the importance of prioritizing sleep.
  • Effective time management strategies include making a task list, prioritizing tasks, scheduling activities, and knowing one's daily productivity cycle.
  • Organizational perspective on stress management emphasizes the importance of a psychologically healthy and safe work environment.
  • The Mental Health Commission of Canada published CSA-Z1003-13 as a voluntary workplace standard, outlining 13 key contributing factors for promoting and maintaining a psychologically healthy and safe work environment.
