Opportunity to Participate in Research on Well-Being and Aging

Well-being is an important aspect of our daily lives, but it is very difficult to measure. Characteristics that impact our sense of well-being can vary from day to day, making it important to assess in everyday life. We are conducting a study that will help develop better measures of well-being as it unfolds across time. We're interested to see how well-being changes within an individual from day to day, and how these changes compare between younger, middle-aged and older adults.

Participation will involve completing an online survey about your day to day experiences each evening for 2 weeks. Each survey session should take about 15-20 minutes. This is a novel way of measuring well-being, which is most often assessed with a single one-time question. Identifying the factors which influence well-being on a daily basis will help us understand how to help individuals maintain high well-being throughout their lives.
