Stress and Relaxation Behaviour in Everyday Life (SEA)

The study "Stress and Relaxation Behaviour in Everyday Life (SEA)" is a new multinational study led by Professor Dr. Dr. Andreas Heinz and Dr. Shuyan Liu at CharitéUniversitätsmedizin Berlin. This study aims to deepen our understanding of stress and relaxation behaviour in everyday life, including providing mechanistic insights.

Stress and relaxation can affect our everyday life. The degrees of effect can vary from person to person and depending on the situation. The SEA team investigates the contextual modulation of physiological and psychological responses triggered by extreme environmental situations (e.g. a global pandemic).

The coronavirus pandemic is upending life in large parts of the world. There is an urgent need to explore strategies for overcoming challenges. Qiu et al. (2020) showed that more than one-third of respondents (35% of 52730 respondents) in China experienced psychological distress during the COVID-19 pandemic. The SEA study investigates how people living in Germany cope with extreme environment conditions (i.e. a coronavirus outbreak).

The SEA study comprises an anonymous online survey that takes approximately 6 minutes (60 questions).
