Hi guys, I would really appreciate if you can help me find a fairly short scale or a scale with atleast under 40 items that is based on how Stress impacts Lifestyle. So for example; The lifestyle changes/behaviours they've taken due to stress! (Not how the cope) if that makes sense. My questionnaire for my dissertation is getting long which is why I need a shorter scale.

I can't seem to find anything other than how lifestyle impacts stress! Need a scale asap!
thank you!!

Homes and Rahe Stress Scale any good?

You could do the above test and then ask a few questions about lifestyle change and correlate the two? Not sure of any existing scale that assess what you're asking to such a degree.

Thank you so much for getting back to me!!
I looked at that one earlier..but most of the items don’t really relate to what for example; students do when they’re stressed. (I should of included this in the main post). Are there any known scales that ask what you do when you’re stressed for example; exercise less, weight gain/loss, drink/use drugs and so on?

I cannot find anything

Could you not create your own scale for such things? Do a literature review on impacts of stress on lifestyle and use that to inform your own scale and then correlate it with a stress scale that already exists.

this should help: https://www.scirp.org/pdf/OJMP_2013043009364718.pdf

I’m not entirely sure if I can. This is for my undergraduate dissertation but I will definitely ask my supervisor. Thank you so much you’ve been a star!

If it's informed by literature it should be fine for a dissertation. But yeah check with your supervisor.

How will I form the actual questionnaire though? For example if the literature says students often suffer with : lack of sleep, eating less, excessive alcohol drinking etc would I include that in the questionnaire with a 4 point scale from Strongly Disagree to Strongly agree?

Do your research! Look for what others have done (in publications) in similar areas and/or ask your supervisor

Ah my supervisor advised that I don’t make my own questionnaire as it will be time consuming and I need to get my ethics approved ASAP! I really don’t know what to do 😭
