In modern society, there are a number of factors contributing to stimulation, variation and development, but also to high workload and stress. In view of the high prevalence of stress-related disorders in the industrialized countries, it is important to understand the social, behavioral, psychological and biological mechanisms linking psychosocial stress to physical health problems. The aim of this chapter is to review the empirical knowledge and the theoretical models explaining these relationships. This knowledge is important in order to understand why people exposed to psychosocial stress develop physical, and often medically unexplained, health problems. One conclusion is that in the modern society, lack of time for rest and recovery may be a greater health problem than the absolute levels of stress and workload at work.
