To Study the Effect of Favourable Prompts and Resilience on Stress Levels among Young Adults: An Experimental Study

Mayuri Godbole

Abstract: It is well established that stress affects the physiological and mental health of young adults who due to their busy schedule cannot cope effectively. Thus, stress gets accumulated in the body. To find a solution for this, the following study aimed to find out if the stress levels reduce significantly after the immediate provision of a prompt (a relaxing stimulus). It also explores the relationship between resilience levels and perceived stress intensity. Participants (n=60) were selected for an experiment on the basis of the scores obtained on the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS). An experiment was conducted to test the first hypothesis. They were also given the Brief Resilience scale. The t test and Pearson Product Moment Correlation methods were used to test the hypothesis. Results indicate that the stress levels decreased significantly after the provision of the prompt (t =16.879) and the resilience levels were negatively correlated with the intensity of the perceived stress (r value = - 0.305).
