Sažetak
Subjective wellbeing (SWB) defined as people’s cognitive and emotional evaluations of their life, represents life satisfaction and happiness that can be influenced by many factors. In everyday life, people use different behaviors to regulate their emotional states which may affect their SWB. This study explored the contribution of affect regulation strategies, demographic, individual and social indicators to the variability of SWB components. The contribution of affect regulation was examined using MARS (Larsen and Prizmic, 2004) on a sample of 411 students. Based on Parkinson and Totterdell’s theoretical framework (1999), strategies were classified as behavioral, cognitive, situation-focus, affect-focus strategies, disengagement and avoidance. Students often use behavioral, affect and situation focus strategies, and they are rarely disengaged. Women use more affect directed and disengagement strategies than men. Disengagement is not associated with happiness. Avoidance strategy is negatively associated with SWB. Hierarchical regression revealed that behavioral and affect focus strategies significantly predicted SWB after controlling for gender, age, socioeconomic status, self-esteem, family cohesion and social support. These strategies include active distraction from negative mood, whether it is about going out (behavioral strategies), or managing your feelings (affect-focus) and it can be concluded that for SWB is important to be active in the regulation of emotional states.
