Welcome to the Daily Well-Being in Adulthood Lab at North Carolina State University

 Daily Well-Being Lab Fall 2020

We aim to promote health and well-being across the adult lifespan through psychological science. We are currently engaged in studies focused on the dynamic interplay of individual differences and contextual changes associated with health and well-being on a daily basis. We seek to examine individual and daily characteristics that address the following question: For whom and under which circumstances are health and well-being optimized (or not)?

Our research focuses on three broad topics:

  • Daily events (e.g., stressors, activities) and their associations with affect, physical health, and memory across the adult lifespan using daily diary designs
  • Socioeconomic and personality differences in reactivity to various types of stressors (e.g., naturally-occurring, laboratory-induced)
  • Statistical techniques for examining change and intraindividual variability
