Abstract
Introduction and Objectives:
In Mexico, the indication to shelter in place due to COVID-19 began on March 14, 2020. To date, there are few studies on risk factors and protectors of the impact of this confinement. The aim was to evaluate a structural model of the perceived impact in different areas of the person's life due to confinement by COVID-19, including stress tolerance and life satisfaction as predictors.
Patients or Materials and Methods:
This was a longitudinal paired groups study, seeking to identify the effect of the independent variables with two months between evaluations (evaluation 1: stress tolerance and life satisfaction) on the dependent one (evaluation 2: impact). Were included 158 people with mean age of 31.8 years (SD = 11.1), 65.2% women.
Results:
The structural model confirms the effect of stress tolerance and life satisfaction on the perceived impact of confinement in the areas of emotional well-being, physical condition, health, happiness and tranquility.
Conclusions:
It is concluded that stress tolerance and life satisfaction can be protectors of the impact of confinement in those areas in which the person can modify their behavior or thoughts.
