Abstract:

The midlife period in the lifespan is characterized by a complex interplay of multiple roles which can lead to stress among middle adults. With necessary adjustments and coping skills made at midlife, middle adults can achieve long term satisfaction by the last stage of life. Hence, an attempt was made to study the stress level and subjective well-being of middle-aged working adults from Hyderabad city. Ex-post facto research design was used for the study.60 middle adults (including 30 females and 30 males) who were working and consented to participate in the age group of 40-55 years were randomly selected. A structured schedule was developed to collect the demographic profile of middle adults. Perceived scale developed by Cohen and Kamarck was used for assessing the stress level of middle adults. Subjective well-being scale by Nagarathnamma was used to examine the SWB of middle adults. Frequencies, percentages, means, standard deviations and independent t- test were used to analyze the collected data. Results revealed that majority of majority of the sample had moderate stress level, followed by high stress level and few of them percent had low stress level. Women were mostly subjected to stress rather than male. SWB were found high among male compared to female. Significant difference was observed between gender and perceived stress which depicts that woman was more vulnerable to stress than men. Significant difference was also observed between gender and SWB which connotates that men were having more SWB than women.
