Abstract

Our study investigated the association between sleep, mood, and stress. Participants in this study included freshmen students (ages 18-25 years) at the University of Lynchburg. The inventories that were used to examine the different dimensions of sleep, mood, and stress were the Profile of Mood States (Shacham, 1983), Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (Buysse et al., 1989), Perceived Stress Scale (Cohen et al., 1983), and a demographic questionnaire. To examine the relationship, a Pearson Bivariate correlation will demonstrate the association of the variables of sleep, mood, and stress. Our study will be useful in assessing the nature of sleep, mood, and stress and seeing how they are interconnected. We anticipate that as one’s sleep quality decreases, their mood will become increasingly disturbed, and they will experience higher levels of stress.The results, combined with prior literature, will be beneficial to educators, students, and clinicians by providing them a better understanding of these aspects of human wellness.
