Abstract:Stress experiences are unavoidably in our everyday-life. Within research and press, stress is considered negative and its negative effects are exceedingly emphasized. The positive response to stress, called eustress, is much less researched. Eustress is a healthy, positive and constructive response to stressful events and can improve performance, health and well-being. Empirical research and a suitable scale to assess eustress are missing. The objective of this research was to develop and validate the Eustress Questionnaire (EQ) that can be used for empirical research. Therefore the psychometric properties factorial structure, internal consistency and convergent and discriminant validity were examined.
