Sample text

Our attention wanders. We become bored and drowsy, and sometimes somewhat irritated. The work becomes less and less manageable, and this too can give rise to stress, though of a different quality than the kind of stress discussed above (as described later in this section, this essentially corresponds to the kind of stress of the second stage of a stress process). 1 The General Adaptation Syndrome Stress is an old animal reaction pattern to adapt ourselves to life-threatening circumstances that we cannot manage with our normal behaviour patterns.

This punctuation enables us—after ample practice—to activate automatically the right mental contents. Generally speaking, we find ourselves in a focused state of consciousness: we are busy, with a certain intensity and effort, bodily as well as mentally, focusing exclusively on our activity of the moment, without unnecessary role switches. The activity dominates what we think. It also steers our memory, in the sense that relevant information is automatically retrieved. We experience all of this as living in the here and now, temporally forgetting about the rest of the world.

What follows is a list of such mechanisms. The first motivational factor in the continuation of work to be mentioned here is probably the most basic one. It refers to the idea that we have a biologically determined need for a certain level of activity and activation. We need such a level in order to develop ourselves and to stay healthy (Hebb, 1966). Living too long at a too high or too low level of activation can be both unpleasant and unhealthy. Because everyday work is so repetitious and familiar to us, we know exactly what it does to us.
