The Happiness Project is a pilot study of college students that looks to test a daily diary study on positive psychology. It examines relationships between positive psychology constructs and health outcomes in order to assess the feasibility of a positive psychology-based intervention in college students to inform a large-scale funded study. This study looks to find out if the use of a daily diary model enhances well-being and happiness, as well as reducing health behaviors such as drinking. The data collected will inform a larger scale study and phone app.
