THANK YOU!

A huge thank you to everyone who participated in my research study on personal resiliency and well-being. The study ended on February 28, 2021 and garnered 337 responses. I am thrilled to report we had participants from every continent except Antarctica, and included males, females, and other gender-identified individuals who were as young as 18 and as old as 99+ years. Also, I just had a positive research meeting with the statistical analysis experts at the Burkardt Consulting Center at Northern Kentucky University who are currently crunching the numbers for the study. It will still take a few weeks to tabulate and analyze the results, however, I am able to share some initial findings I noticed upon a soft review of the data:

  1. There are 12 determinants of well-being.
  2. Having money does not equate to being happy (Money really can’t buy happiness).
  3. Many individuals who felt they lacked sufficient disposable income nevertheless reported experiencing a high degree of well-being.
  4. People of faith are more likely to have higher levels of happiness.
  5. Frequent connectivity to nature and animals significantly correlates to well-being.
  6. There is a strong relationship between personal resiliency and grit and happiness and personal well-being.
  7. Having positive interpersonal relationships and feeling connected to others supports happiness.
  8. Individuals who volunteer and donate time and resources experience higher levels of well-being.
  9. Participating in music, painting, and other creative endeavors support happiness.
  10. Participating in formal and informal personal development activities enhance well- being.

Interesting preliminary results, plus, there is much more to analyze and correlate.

Now that the initial study is complete, I am excited to share that I have begun to write my first book on the subject which I hope to complete by summer. Also, I promise to provide updates on research findings and progress on the book in addition to creating more posts and podcasts on topics related to health, science, and well-being.

Thanks again for your support and have a safe and healthy week.

Cheers,
Pam
