Social support and psychological well-being during COVID-19
Scientific Questions Being Studied
Our primary aims for conducting this research project are:
1. How is perceived social support associated with individuals’ (a) COVID-10 relational impact, (b) general well-being, and (c) resilience during the COVID-19 pandemic?
2. How is social distancing associated with individuals’ (a) perceived social support and (b) loneliness?
3. Is physical activity a moderator for the associations proposed in aim 1 and 2?
By examining these aims, we hope to better understand the role social support and physical activity play in individuals’ psychology well-being and well-functioning adaptation during the COVID-19 pandemic. The findings will inform future public health guidelines for navigating a public health crisis.
- Population Health
- Social / Behavioral
We plan to use the three-wave data collected in the COPE project. Regression analyses and longitudinal analyses will be performed using R.
We anticipate that results will illuminate that social support and physical activity are important factors that could help maintain or enhance individuals’ psychological well-being. During a public health crisis like COVID-19 where interactions with friends and family are substantially circumscribed, it is pivotal to encourage individuals to be creative in maintaining necessary bonds and connections with close others.
