Wellness: the quality or state of being in good health, especially as an actively sought goal (Wolf et al. 2012, 164).
Well being among young adults aged 18-35. generally a self report amount of data since everyone has a different view for themselves.
Our study will also look at if there is a religious aspect of Well Being or if being involved in a religious practice can influence.

Listening to music could be for pleasure, emotion regulation, and identity formation It could also be for peer relatedness and friendship.
There are numerous of studies that suggest that music influenced different aspects of a person’s development, health and their quality of life

Stimulating music produces increases in cardiovascular measures, where relaxing music produces decreases in cardiovascular measures. (Chanda, M., Levitin, D., 2013).
Experimental Method Study
45 participants
Introduction to Psychology II at Crandall University
Informed consent
Participants will fill out three surveys
It will take 10-15 minutes
Debrief with participants
Theoretical Considerations
Mood of the participants on the day the study is conducted: people will be randomly assigned to groups in an attempt to even this out

Separating into groups might make people aware that there is an experiment being conducted rather than simply a survey.
All students are intro psych, therefore not necessarily the best representation of the general population.
Recognition of the music could affect their scores
Operational Definition

Using PANAS and SWL Scales we will attempt to determine whether music in a major or minor
key has an effect on individuals perceived well being

We predict that music in a major or minor key will affect the subjective well-being of
