Abstract:Everyday we experience a considerable amount of small stressors, so called daily hassles. These daily hassles come in all sorts of forms, from simply having to go to work in the morning to bumping and bruising your knee. Resilience is a process that can help deal with stress in a successful manner. Resilience is defined in this study as the ability to experience low levels of negative affect and high levels of positive affect following daily stressful events. To increase resilience, this study uses self compassion as a possible resilience resource. Self compassion is about being open and being moved by your own suffering. It is examined if self compassion will account for less negative affect and more positive affect while undergoing a daily hassle. So the aim of the study is to see if self compassion is a positive psychological resilience resource for resilience to daily stressors.
