  1. BWSF: Baseline Wake-up Salivary Free; ASQ: adolescent stress questionnaire; β: Standardized beta coefficients
  2. 1 Besides the ASQ scale or summary score, the adolescents' pubertal stage was included as predictor in the regression models; only the regression coefficients and significance for the ASQ score as predictor are given.
