Poor sleep quality is an increasing health problem among Americans, and college students are especially notorious for chronic sleep-deprivation. This is concerning considering the research supporting the role of sleep quality in overall well-being. Previous research suggests that sleep quality predicts indicators of well-being, such as optimism, self-esteem, and social competence. Additionally, dispositional optimism and perceived social support have been shown to be antecedents to psychological well-being. This study aims to investigate whether perceived social support and optimism mediate the association between sleep quality and emotional well-being among college students. 128 students completed a series of trait and state (daily) reports regarding their sleep quality, optimism, perceived social support, and well-being.
