Description

This study was conducted to investigate how someone's finances affect their health and wellness. Money is a key factor in life; without financial stability, keeping up with medical bills, regular doctor visits, insurance, and other things pertaining to good health could be difficult. In turn, someone dealing with financial problems could have unknown health factors. In addition, studies have shown individuals with more wealth live longer than others. Though money plays an important role in health, other measures can be taken. So, households making an improper income there is no need to stress. Three females and three males were studied for four weeks in the experiment. Each participant reported one meal a day of my choice and how many hours they slept that night. As well as sharing the number of times they had a headache, stomach-ache and used substances during the week. Lastly, they reported their heart rate once a week and any feelings of depression and or anxiety they experienced through the week. The participants were asked no questions Sunday to regroup. Participants taking home seventy-thousand dollars plus a year seemed to eat healthier, but females seemed to sleep more and eat healthier, while males seemed to sleep less and use substances more often. Overall, females seemed healthier than males. After observing and recording the participants' lifestyles, my results show that a healthy lifestyle and wellness depends heavily on gender, preexisting health factors, combined with financial status. Some participants could have been healthier due to economic situations, while others due to how busy their day to day lives were.
