Psychological and Physical Health Study

Healthy Volunteers needed (men or women ages 22 to 60 years old) for a Study about Health and Well-Being in Daily Life.

Interested in how health and well-being are connected in your daily life? Researchers at Harvard University are conducting a study about how health and well-being are connected. We are looking for men and women who:

  • are 22 to 60 years old
  • do not have any chronic diseases (e.g., heart disease)
  • are not pregnant
  • are not obese (i.e., body mass index ≥30)
  • are not diagnosed with clinical depression or other major mental disorder
  • do not have restrictions on what types of physical activity they can do
  • exercise less than 2 times per week
  • are English speakers

The study will last no more than 3.5 hours, but takes place over eight to ten days. You will be asked to complete questionnaires online four times and visit a Harvard laboratory once. You will be offered $50 in cash and/or gift cards for participation in the study. You will also be reimbursed for public transportation expenses to get to and from the laboratory (up to $6 in cash) or provided with complimentary parking near the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health on the day of their laboratory visit.

Please be noted that you will be asked to provide us with your name, phone number and mailing address to participate in the study. Your contact information will not be linked to any of the other information collected from you and will not be used for any other purpose.
