As part of the S1.2 theme in CUSP, we are exploring the possibility that individuals can lead more fulfilling lives by engaging in activities that require investments of concentration and skill rather than material resources. In other words, it is suggested that well-being may be enhanced through less environmentally damaging, but more mentally or physically demanding activities. The extent to which individuals may choose to engage in such activities (and hence also their well-being) may be influenced by their existing values.  

This study therefore aims to understand how people’s values may impact upon their everyday experiences and feelings. It involves completing six short questionnaires which should take no longer than 15 minutes in total. Anyone over the age of 18 can take part. The results are expected to inform future research and interventions looking at how a change in values may allow for more positive experiences and improved well-being.

The survey can be accessed on the University of Surrey website. For general enquiries about this survey, please contact Amy Isham.
