Stress Moderator Variables

Stress Moderator Variables are resources, skills, behaviors, and traits that can reduce the negative impacts of stress. For example, social support, an upbeat personality, meditation and regular physical exercise are examples of stress moderator variables that can help protect someone from the negative effects of a stressful life event such as loss of a job. These variables have been shown to lead to better outcomes in times of stress compared to someone who experiences the same life event without adequate coping skills or support.
