Environmental Factors and Commuting Stress
The effects of environmental stimuli on the individual have been the focus of many investigations over the years. Indeed, social psychologists and health practitioners long ago recognized this area as a legitimate subspecialty within their fields. Periodicals such as the Journal of Environmental Psychology, Work and Stress, and the Journal of Human Stress as well as numerous books have analyzed and discussed the relationship between potential environmental stressors and well-being (Evans, 1982; Proshansky, Ittelson, & Rivlin, 1970; Keating, 1979; Sauter, Hurrell, & Cooper, 1989).
