The purpose of this study was to examine the relationship between various existential variables and overall well-being in a sample of 251 university students. Subjects completed self-report instruments assessing their levels of self-actualization, death anxiety, spirituality, purpose in life, satisfaction with life, psychological well-being, positive affect, and negative affect. The main purpose of this study was to examine the degree to which these existential variables predicted overall well-being. Results revealed that most of the aforementioned existential variables (except death anxiety) significantly predicted overall well-being. Purpose in life was the most significant predictor in the regression analysis. These results are considered within the context of limitations and implications for psychotherapy and future psychological research.
