Accumulating evidence suggests that Positive Affect (PA) is beneficial in determining health-outcomes. Defined as ‘feelings that reflect a level of pleasurable engagement with the environment, such as happiness, joy and excitement’, PA has been associated with social and physiological factors as well as health practices. The work undertaken in this thesis aimed to investigate the relationship between PA and health-outcomes in people living with and without diabetes mellitus, independent of negative affect (NA).
