  • TITLE: Validating the Measures of Perceived Restorativeness in Obudu Mountain Resort, Cross River State, Nigeria

    AUTHORS: Henry I. Ojobo, Sapura Mohamad, Ismail Said

    KEYWORDS: Directed Attention, Stress, Restoration, Mountain Environments, Nigeria

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Social Sciences, Vol.2 No.11, November 24, 2014

    ABSTRACT: Several studies suggest that contact with natural environments enhance restoration of directed attention better than experience of other environments devoid of nature. This study attempts to validate the self-report measures of the components of a restorative environment and perceived stress through an exploratory study of the multi-stimulus Obudu mountain resort environment. Twenty-two respondents randomly co-opted at the study site had their perception of stress measured by the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) while their perceived restoration was measured by the Perceived Restorativeness Scale (PRS). Results indicate an acceptable stable and consistent coefficient alpha across the scores. We found that perceived stress is significantly related to fascination and age while being away, extent, compatibility and length of days were not significant. The results support the reliability and constructs of the PSS and the PRS in a mountain environment. The finding is a further indication of the universality of the underlying postulates behind restorative environments, human response and wellbeing.
