Abstract

The study aimed to explore the predictors of stress in students, as previous research has suggested this as an issue. Two possible predictor variables, Mental Toughness and Sleep Quality, were explored in relation to stress, this was done as a gap in the literature was identified. An opportunity sample of 56 students completed an online questionnaire which measured these 3 variables. Correlational analysis in the form of Pearson’s product moment, and a multiple regression analysis was carried out in order to analyse the data. The results showed that neither mental toughness nor sleep quality were significant predictors of perceived stress in students. Therefore, the hypotheses of this study “Mental toughness will be a significant predictor of perceived stress in students” and “Sleep quality will be a significant predictor of perceived stress in students” were rejected as no significant relationship was found. Based on the findings of this study, future research should investigate using a larger sample, focusing on how other factors could also be predictor variables of stress, and measuring these alongside the variables used in this study.
