ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to identify the effects of serious leisure on self-actualization, self-expression, self-image, and self-gratification. Specifically, this study aimed to examine what causes distresses and eustresses, and their perceptual factors. The data was collected from thirty-nine participants over four weeks using qualitative approaches. Results from this study indicated that most participants had a variety of stresses during the first two weeks and those stresses were similar to the characteristics of distresses. This study also found that several factors (i.e., skills, competitiveness, admiration to experts, and compliments) have a significant influence on coping stresses.
