The Post-80s (also the Post-1980 or balinghou) is a colloquial term which refers to the generation, especially in urban areas, whose members were born between 1980 to 1989 in Mainland China after the introduction of the One-child policy. This generation, the first to grow up entirely within the reformist era, currently ranges in age from 24 to 34, making up a major portion of China's young adult demographic.

Firstly, the stress situations of the Post-80s were surveyed with questionnaires. The result shows that the Post-80s feel stress in daily life and interested in decreasing their stress, though they are thought to be a happy generation in China. Over 95% of male respondents answered that they feel stress, while 87% of female respondents feel stress.

Secondly, the restorative environment for them were surveyed and compared between the post-80s who lives in Mainland China and the post-80s who lives in Japan as foreign students. The top three answered restorative environment of the Chinese Post-80s is natural environment (55.4%), private rooms/houses (37.3%), restaurants/cafes (26.5%). In a previous study, Shibata (2009) shows the top three restorative environments of Japanese students: private rooms/houses (50.0%), baths/bathrooms (20.1%), natural environment (17.4%). However, only 1.2% of the Chinese post-80s answered bath/bathrooms as the restorative environment. There are some discrepancies between the Chinese Post-80s who are living in China and living in Japan. For example, Karaoke is popular in Post-80s living in Japan, Baths/spas and massage/ostheopathy are also pointed by the Post-80s who are living in Japan, though none of the Post-80s in China pointed those environment.

Social environments or surrounding culture could influence on people’s psychology of restorative environment.
