Are you interested in the connection between physical and psychological health? Intrigued about how positive health assets may help us stay healthy and recover more quickly from illness? Looking for ways to stay up-to-speed on the latest research?
Check out the new Positive Health Research website, a valuable resource for those who are exploring the concept of positive health.
Some of the more recent research featured on the website includes:
- A study into whether life satisfaction impacts how often someone visits the doctor
- A study that found psychological well-being is associated with a reduced risk of hypertension
Over the past five years, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has funded research to help identify the health assets that produce stronger health, in collaboration with the Positive Psychology Center at the University of Pennsylvania. This new website showcases the most promising research around the concept of positive health, providing evidence that has the potential to change the way we think about health and health care.
