Stress in Action

The Stress in Action consortium is an NWO-funded project aimed at advancing stress research by shifting focus from the laboratory stress measurement to everyday life assessment. This project aims to leverage advancements in technology and data analytics to understand how daily life stress affects individuals. Several of the DLT lab researchers are a part of this project and their focus is placed on validation and usability of the tools used to measure a stress response, as well as the cognitive aspects of stress and the methodology involved in daily life measurement of cognition as related to stress. 

Overall, the consortium focuses on three main goals:

  1. Understanding Dynamic Stress Responses: Researchers seek to explore how responses to daily life stress are influenced by various factors and individual characteristics over time.
  2. Real-Time Measurement of Daily Life Stress: The project aims to develop reliable methods for measuring stress in real-time during everyday activities.
  3. Identifying Health Impacts: Researchers aim to identify when stress responses become detrimental to mental and physical health.

Through collaboration, the consortium aims to develop new strategies for monitoring and managing daily life stress and its health impacts.
