This study investigates whether a person's word choice correlates with their well-being level. Positive and negative well-being has significant effects on welfare thinking patterns. Previous research has shown that a positive affect correlates with better physical health while negative moods can decrease the meaningfulness of life. In addition, words are powerful indicators of person's emotional, physical, and mental state. This study will contribute to our knowledge of emotional well-being as a correlational variable to our actions and thinking.
