Daily rhythm is a person's internal body clock of alertness, as when people talk about themselves as being “morning” people or “evening” people. Previous studies reported that morning people had better psychological health, but lacked a perspective on the appraisal of their daily rhythm. This research examines the effects of daily rhythm (morningness or eveningness) and the cognitive appraisal of this daily rhythm on stress reactions among university students. 357 university students completed questionnaires regarding a daily rhythm, its cognitive appraisal, and stress. After controlling for sex and stressors, a hierarchical multiple regression analysis was performed. The results showed that daily rhythm is associated with stress reactions, and morning types report less stress. Cognitive appraisal of daily rhythm is related to stress reactions, and those students who see their own daily rhythm positively have less stress reactions. Cognitive appraisal has stronger effects on stress reactions than daily rhythm.
