  • How Does Physical Activity Make You Feel Better' The Mediational Role
           of Perceived Health
    • Authors: Fernando Lera-López; Andrea Ollo-López; José Manuel Sánchez-Santos
      Pages: 511 - 531
      Abstract: Abstract Based on a sample of Spanish adults between the ages of 50 and 70 years, the aim of this paper is to establish to what extent physical activity is positively related to individual subjective well-being either directly or indirectly through its link with perceived health. In other words, we attempt to identify the role played by perceived health as a mediator of the relationship between the level of physical activity and individual happiness and life satisfaction. Moreover, a distinction was made between four activity domains of the individual lifetime involving physical activity: job, transportation, housework, and leisure time. The results show that physical activity in general is positively associated with a higher level of happiness and life satisfaction and that these positive relationships are partially mediated by an individual’s perceived health. Furthermore, we reached the conclusion that this association may vary depending on when the individual is engaged in physical activity. In particular, physical activity undertaken during leisure time has a significant relationship with individual happiness and life satisfaction in adults between the ages of 50 and 70.

  • The Relation between Religion and Well-Being
    • Authors: Adam B. Cohen; Kathryn A. Johnson
      Pages: 533 - 547
      Abstract: Abstract This article reviews research on religion and well-being, focusing primarily on Western, traditional religions. We provide some nuance, caveats, and future directions for further research. We discuss how and why religious groups may differ in their well-being, that there may be important subgroup differences, that there are multiple dimensions to both religion and well-being, that religion and other cultural identities may interact to impact well-being, and that religion (e.g., religious anxieties) may be associated with lower well-being in some ways. We consider how religious extremism relates to well-being and also suggest that more research is needed regarding well-being in other types of religious and spiritual groups. We hope that this article will add complexity to the important intersections between religion and well-being.

  • Workplace Support and Life Satisfaction: the Mediating Roles of
           Work-to-Family Conflict and Mental Health
    • Authors: Deniz Yucel; Krista Lynn Minnotte
      Pages: 549 - 575
      Abstract: Abstract Workplace support has been consistently identified as an important factor shaping the well-being of workers. This study adds to the existing literature by considering how three central facets of workplace support—coworker support, supervisor support, and organizational support—relate to the life satisfaction of US workers. Additionally, we examine whether work-to-family conflict and poor mental health mediate the relationships between the three aspects of workplace support and life satisfaction. The research questions are addressed using data from the 2008 National Study of the Changing Workforce (N = 2594). Our findings indicate that all three types of workplace support have direct effects on life satisfaction. Results also show that work-to-family conflict fully mediates the effect of organizational support on life satisfaction, and partially mediates the effect of supervisor support on life satisfaction. Moreover, poor mental health fully mediates the effects of both organizational and supervisor support on life satisfaction. Coworker support, however, is not mediated by either variable. Overall, we make a contribution to the literature by examining how all three forms of workplace support relate to life satisfaction, with findings emphasizing the centrality of workplace support to the life satisfaction of US workers. We also deepen the understanding of these issues by highlighting the mediating roles of poor mental health and work-to-family conflict.

      Abstract: Abstract This study was conducted to explore the unclear relationships among stress and self-esteem and life satisfaction of perfectionists. A sample of 1957 Chinese undergraduates completed Frost Multidimensional Perfectionism Scale (FMPS), Perceived Stress Scale (PSS), Rosenberg Self-Esteem Scale (RSES), and Quality of Life Enjoyment and Satisfaction Questionnaire-short form (Q-LES-Q). Cluster analysis was used to define categories of perfectionists and nonperfectionists. Correlation analysis and structural equation modeling were also used. Results showed that adaptive perfectionists had higher RSES scores and Q-LES-Q scores and lower PSS scores than maladaptive perfectionists (all p < 0.01). All variables were correlated significantly (all p < 0.01) and were included in the final structural equation model, which fitted the data well. These results indicated that both stress and self-esteem mediated the relationships between adaptive and maladaptive perfectionism and life satisfaction, and self-esteem suppressed the negative effect of stress on life satisfaction.

  • The Relationship between Perceived Underemployment and Wellbeing: Evidence
           from Mid-Size Canadian Cities
    • Authors: Margo Hilbrecht; Bryan Smale; Steven E. Mock
      Pages: 607 - 631
      Abstract: Abstract This study examines the association between underemployment and quality of life, with a focus the explanatory power of community and leisure factors. Using survey data collected by the Canadian Index of Wellbeing in four mid-size communities (N = 5561), a subsample of participants was selected who indicated that they worked for pay (n = 2845). About one-fifth of workers were underemployed, based on a perceived mismatch between their job and their education and training. Guided by a modified perspective of the Leisure Constraints Model that includes intrapersonal, interpersonal, and structural level constraints and/or facilitators to participation, data were analyzed using two linear regression models examining overall wellbeing and self-assessed mental health. After controlling for socio-demographic characteristics in each model, mediators were introduced and then further probed to determine significant pathways in the relationships. In both cases, the direct effect of underemployment was negative. Wellbeing among underemployed workers was partially mediated by two structural, and one interpersonal factors: time for self, perceived access to recreation and cultural opportunities, and sense of community. Mental health was fully mediated by time for self and sense of community. In a test of contrast between significant pathways, there were no differences in either model, suggesting that each of the significant leisure moderators contributed equally to the relationship between underemployment and quality of life. Community and leisure factors have been relatively unexamined to date, but results show that they should be considered for inclusion in future research on personal outcomes of underemployment.

  • Neighborhoods, Family Functioning, and Mothers’ Mental Health for
           Families with a Child with an Autism Spectrum Disorder
    • Authors: Andrew L. Whitehead
      Pages: 633 - 651
      Abstract: Abstract Mothers of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) typically report lower overall family functioning and worse mental health. Neighborhood conditions are found to positively influence family functioning and mental health in the general population. Employing a process-person-context model, this study extends these literatures to examine whether various neighborhood conditions – both positive and negative – affect mothers’ mental health and the overall functioning of families with a child with an ASD. Simultaneous equation path analysis of a nationally representative sample of children in the US finds neighborhood support to be positively and significantly associated with mothers’ mental health and the overall functioning of families with a child with an ASD. However, neighborhood amenities and neighborhood deficiencies were not significantly associated with either mothers’ mental health or family functioning. Neighborhood support can play a vital role in improved subjective quality of life for mothers with a child on the autism spectrum.

  • Leisure Consumption and well-Being among Older Adults: Does Age or Life
           Situation Matter'
    • Authors: Tiia Kekäläinen; Terhi-Anna Wilska; Katja Kokko
      Pages: 671 - 691
      Abstract: Abstract This study investigated the associations between leisure consumption and well-being in older adults (50–74 years old). To find out whether these associations are age-specific, they were compared with the associations observed among younger adults (18–49 years old). Differences between the older adults by age and life situation were also examined. This study was based on the “Finland 2014 – Consumption and Life style” survey (N = 1351), conducted among a representative sample of the Finnish adult population. Well-being was measured as mental, economic and physical well-being. Objects of leisure consumption were grouped by factor analysis, and the associations between the resulting leisure consumption factors and the dimensions of well-being were studied using regression analysis. In addition, interaction terms were used to compare differences in the associations between younger and older adults, and among older adults varying in their life situation. In the older adults, appearance was related to better mental well-being, literature & culture to better economic well-being, and exercise to better physical well-being. Travel was linked positively to all the dimensions of well-being, and health care negatively to mental and physical well-being. Some differences in the associations were observed between the younger and older adults; for example, exercise but not appearance was associated with better emotional well-being among the younger adults. In general, the associations were stronger in the older than younger adults. Among the older adults, age, employment status, and marital status moderated some associations. Further research, especially with longitudinal data, is needed to clarify the causal relationships between leisure consumption and well-being.

  • Comorbid Social Phobia and Major Depressive Disorder: the Influence of
           Remission from Depression on Quality of Life and Functioning
    • Authors: Alexander Joseph Steiner; Stephanie Marie Wright; Taylor Kuhn; Waguih William IsHak
      Pages: 719 - 736
      Abstract: Abstract Social phobia (SP) and major depressive disorder (MDD) are frequently concurrent, which negatively affects quality of life (QOL), functioning, and depressive symptom severity. We hypothesized individuals with comorbid SP and MDD (MDD + SP) would have worse treatment outcomes than those with MDD alone (MDDnoSP), but that both groups would have significant responses to treatment, and those who achieved MDD remission would have the best increases in QOL and functioning. We analyzed data for 2280 adults who received citalopram monotherapy in phase 1 of the NIH-funded Sequenced Treatment Alternatives to Relieve Depression (STAR*D) study. Participants (82 MDD + SP and 2198 MDDnoSP) with complete entry and exit scores across QOL, functioning, and depressive symptom severity were examined. MDD remission status following treatment was determined. Patient-reported QOL and functioning scores were classified as within-normal or severely-impaired. No significant between-group differences were observed across all outcomes at entry or exit. Both groups experienced significant improvements in QOL and functioning (all p values < .01, Cohen’s d values > .77). Although non-significant, the MDD + SP group was more likely to achieve within-normal scores and MDD remission post-treatment. Findings were interesting as we initially expected the MDD + SP participants to have worse outcomes, yet those with MDD alone had a more chronic course. Regardless, participants who were able to achieve MDD remission post-treatment had significantly better improvements in QOL and functioning. Accordingly, researchers and clinicians should utilize QOL and functioning measures when examining treatment effectiveness, while also considering the role of remission from major depressive disorder on quality of life.

  • Happiness, Socioeconomic Status, and Family Functioning in South African
           Households: a Structural Equation Modelling Approach
    • Authors: Ferdi Botha; Edwin Wouters; Frikkie Booysen
      Abstract: Abstract This paper examines how SES relates to individual happiness, while also controlling for family functioning; the latter measured by the Family Attachment and Changeability Index 8 (FACI8). An individual-, household-, and subjective SES index are developed via multiple correspondence analyses (MCA). Using data from the 2012 South African Social Attitudes Survey (SASAS), the paper employs structural equation modelling (SEM) to explore the relationship between happiness, SES, and family functioning. Multiple-group SEM (MGSEM) is employed to examine the association between happiness and family functioning across quartiles of the three SES indices. The results reveal that higher SES is significantly related to greater happiness, with the role of household- and subjective SES being stronger than individual SES. Furthermore, improved levels of family changeability are positively associated with happiness, whereas there is no relationship between happiness and family attachment. Overall, levels of family changeability and individual happiness are likely to benefit from improvements in socioeconomic status.

  • Economic Poverty and Happiness in Rural Ecuador: the Importance of Buen
           Vivir (Living Well)
    • Authors: Fernando García-Quero; Jorge Guardiola
      Abstract: Abstract This research paper addresses the endemic dimensions of having or not having a good life using a concept of poverty based on self-reported subjective well-being. We build a subjective well-being poverty (SWBP) line and compare it with two income poverty (IP) lines. The endemic dimension comes from rural Ecuador and the indigenous happiness idea of Buen Vivir (Living Well), which has been the focus of growing attention in the scientific and the political arena. Discrepancies between SWBP and IP are deeply explored building models that explain SWBP with IP, as well as control variables and Buen Vivir related variables. We show that income poor households are more likely to be poor in terms of their reported subjective well-being. However, households that grow their own food and are in an indigenous community are less likely to report to be subjective well-being poor. The results suggest that low SWBP values in contrast with high IP may be explained by idiosyncratic components of the Buen Vivir philosophy. The components of the Buen Vivir ethos related to SWBP give rise to the idea of building multidimensional concepts of poverty based on what ethnic people consider to be good or bad for their specific way of life. In a general context, our study raises the importance of considering poverty and its dimensions taking into account the endemic factors of specific groups of people and cultures. That is, to take into account what is important for their lives.

  • Examining the Effects of Servant Leadership on Life Satisfaction
    • Authors: Aamir Ali Chughtai
      Abstract: Abstract This paper explored the effects of servant leadership on employees’ life satisfaction. In addition, it examined the mediating role of work engagement and organizational based self-esteem (OBSE) in this relationship. Data for this cross sectional survey study were collected from 160 Pakistani employees who were working on a full-time basis in a large tractor manufacturing company. The SPSS macro developed by Preacher and Hayes (2008) was used to test the research hypotheses. Results showed that servant leadership was positively related to both work engagement and OBSE, which, in turn, were both positively related to life satisfaction. Furthermore, it was found that work engagement and OBSE fully mediated the effects of servant leadership on life satisfaction. Limitations of the results and implications of these findings for theory and practice are discussed.

  • Individual and Contextual Factors of Happiness and Life Satisfaction in a
           Low Middle Income Country
    • Authors: Sujarwoto Sujarwoto; Gindo Tampubolon; Adi Cilik Pierewan
      Abstract: Abstract Understanding individual and contextual factors of happiness and life satisfaction in a low- and middle-income country setting are important in the study of subjective well-being. This study aims to examine individual and contextual factors of happiness and life satisfaction in one of the happiest countries in the world: Indonesia. Data comes from the Indonesian Family Life Survey 2014 (N individual = 31,403; N household = 15,160; N district = 297). Results from a three-level ordered logit model show that factors of happiness and life satisfaction are beyond individual factors. Happiness and life satisfaction are also strongly associated with factors within an individual’s household and at the district government level. Individuals living in households with better economic welfare are happier and more satisfy. Poor health and unemployment have a detrimental effect on happiness and life satisfaction. Individuals living in districts whose governments’ better deliver public services are happier and more satisfy. In contrast, those living in areas with conflict and violence is less happy and satisfy. Individual religiosity and community social capital in the form of indigenous tradition benefit individual happiness and life satisfaction.

  • Health as a value and its association with health-related quality of life,
           mental health, physical health, and subjective well-being
    • Authors: Henrik Dobewall; Riin Tark; Toivo Aavik
      Abstract: Abstract The current study examined the associations of health as a value with health and well-being outcomes. We analyzed cross-sectional data from 329 healthy Estonian blood donors (74% female, age range 17–64 years). Compared to the original higher-order values of Schwartz, health as a value was more strongly associated with health-related quality of life, mental health, and physical health. Associations of health value facets were higher for corresponding health outcomes than for dissimilar ones. Health values, however, were not associated with subjective well-being. In conclusion, our findings suggest that placing a high value on health benefits individuals’ health.
