Description: It has been documented that certain types of activities are related to well-being. However, most studies have focused on social or positive activities. In this study, the relation between self-reported everyday activities and subjective well-being will be explored using natural language processing in the form of statistical semantics. This method has to our knowledge not been used in this context to date. Well-being has many times been assessed using the construct life satisfaction. This construct is theoretically related to hedonism, pleasure and other self-indulgent aspects of well-being. The construct harmony in life, on the other hand, is related to balance, eudaimonia and other selfless aspects of well-being, thus complementing life satisfaction in assessing the cognitive aspect of subjective well-being. In addition to the cognitive aspect, subjective well-being has an affective aspect conceptualised as a preponderance of positive affect in comparison to negative affect. In this study, we examine how participants’ self-reported activities are related to their subjective well-being. The aim is to answer three questions: Can a person’s self-reported activities predict subjective well-being? Are the different subjective well-being constructs related to different activities? Is variation in activities related to subjective well-being?
