Welcome!

Ever wonder how the ups and downs of daily life affect your health? The UPLIFT Health Lab at UBC is exploring how daily experiences — such as stress, emotions, and activities — contribute to emotional well-being and health among adults in our community.

We are inviting adults ages 25 years and older to participate by attending 2 sessions at our lab, in addition to tracking their daily experiences and health for two weeks. These procedures will be repeated 1 year and 2 years after the initial study participation. By taking part in this study, you may gain a better understanding of your daily life and your health behaviours. The results from this study may help guide the development of interventions to improve health and well-being across adulthood.

Participants will receive up to $50 for completing each yearly set of procedures, for a total of $150 across the 3 annual assessments. In addition, each participant will receive personalized reports of their physical activity and sleep.

If you are interested in participating and would like more information, please email our lab at uplift@psych.ubc.ca or call us at (604) 827-2241.
