Abstract:To enhance the experience of eustress in individuals can have positive effects for the health of the individual and the society in general. Still, the factors behind it are not fully examined. This study aims to examine to what extent resilience, problem-focused coping, and positive reappraisal influence eustress. Indirect effects of problem-focused coping and positive reappraisal on the association between resilience and eustress are proposed. The influence of those three concepts on eustress were measured by a questionnaire consisting of different scales.. The data of 101 respondents have been analyzed in form of correlational and mediational analyses. Overall, a positive relationship between all four constructs has been found. The expected indirect effect of the coping mechanisms on the association between resilience and eustress, could only be marginally found for problem-focused coping. Positive reappraisal also was no significant predictor of eustress. Still, those results proved that the concepts are related, and may help in the development of interventions aimed at stress. Future research could examine this relation further.
