Lingering Negative Affect in Response to Daily Stressors in relation with Physical Health Years Later: A Longitudinal Replication


Lingering negative affect (negative emotions related to stressors that had occurred the day before) has been introduced in recent years as a potential negative mediator to one’s future physical health. The present study utilized longitudinal data from a community-based, nationwide study (n = 2023) to replicate a previous study on how negative affect that persists after a stressor has occurred is related to future health (Leger et al., Psychological science, 29(B), 1283-1290, 2018). Preliminary findings indicated that while certain values (e.g. means, standard deviation) were different from Leger’s due to inconsistencies in the number of participants (n = 1155) included in the original paper, participants who graduated from high school and above experienced more stressors, and tended to be younger.
