abstract
This study is focused on how mental health affects physical lifestyle. It has been shown that psychological well being can influence how well one’s body is able to function as a whole as well as fighting off certain diseases. There has not been research done on how to “prescribe happiness” in order to have those health benefits. The question we will ask is “does leading a healthy lifestyle make you happier?” We will use data from the General Social Survey, 2006, #20681, Inter-University Consortium for Social and Political Research. The independent variable, physical lifestyle, is measured by a person’s physical activity, diet, amount of sleep, and whether a person smokes or drinks regularly. Mental health is measured by self-assessment questions regarding optimistic versus pessimistic outlooks, confidence, self appraisal, and an objective measure depression.
