Personal Project Content and Stress: Relations to Subjective Health and Depressive Mood
Wallenius, Marjut A.
Social Indicators Research, v81 n1 p35-50 Mar 2007
The aim of this study was to examine how personal project stress and stress related to different personal project contents are associated with subjective health and depressive mood among adults. Participants were 343 men and women (20-76 years old), who responded to the questionnaire including the Little's Personal Project Analysis, and health and depression measures. As expected, high personal project stress was related to lower perceived general health, greater number of health complaints, and higher level of depressive mood. Further analysis showed that general health, health complaints, and depressive mood were predicted by stress related to specific personal project contents.
