In this study, we investigated the various types of healthy activities that were carried out as stress management behavior by 205 Korean university students. Here, stress management behavior is defined as any form of healthy activities that intend to control stress. Results revealed that only one thirds of the participants were engaged in such activities. The main activities carried out by them included engaging in physical activities or hobbies, and talking or interacting with others. Such activities reflected clear gender differences. Results also indicated that men were more likely to engage in hobbies, while women were more likely to talk or interact with others.
