Abstract:In this research, the mediating effect of eustress and distress on the association between sleep and depression was examined. It was expected that both eustress and distress are mediators in that association. Participants (N = 159) were asked to fill out an online questionnaire measur-ing their sleep quality, levels of eustress and distress and depressive symptoms in this de-scriptive research. In order to analyse the obtained data, the mediation analysis designed by Preacher and Hayes was used. Both hypotheses were rejected based on the finding that sleep was not significantly associated with eustress and distress. However, it was found that eu-stress was negatively and distress was positively associated with depression. Keywords: Sleep, Distress, Eustress, Depression
