Title: Stress and Physical Activity
Developed under the guidance of Dr. Jutta Street , Psychology

Participants in this study were given a 30-item stress overload assessment as well a physical activity questionnaire. Stress assessment will be graded for two components, event load and personal vulnerability. Physical activity will be measured for three components, those being personal barriers, outcome expectations, and self-regulation. The goal of the study was to see if there was a correlation between stress and physical activity in college students. A preliminary study found that there was not a significant relationship between physical activity and stress; however, there were significant sub-correlations between the 3 components of physical activity.
