Abstract/Artist Statement

The purpose of this study was to determine if there is a relationship between stress and amount of time spent watching Entertainment. A total of 50 students from the University of the Pacific were interviewed using an anonymous questionnaire. The variables measured were stress and time spent watching entertainment. The survey included 13 items to which participants responded using a Likert-type scale. The results found a significant positive correlation between stress and time spent watching entertainment. The results suggest that stress and time spent watching television are positively related. A limitation of this study is that participants included only University of the Pacific students. Future studies can have a larger sample size that include college students nationwide.
