Description: Description: Anhedonia, a decreased capability to experience pleasure, is a major public health concern. It is a dreadful experience for those who suffer from it, causing a sense of disengagement from the surrounding world and an increased risk of suicide. Losing the ability to experience pleasure has particularly far-reaching negative developmental consequences in adolescence and young adulthood, when life course decisions are made on the basis of what is satisfying. The relevance of this health problem urges for novel approaches to reinstitute the ability to experience pleasure once it is lost. The No Fun No Glory (NFNG) study uses state-of-the-art biopsychosocial methods to better understand what causes and sustains anhedonia. We explored the potential of two interventions: (1) a personalized lifestyle advice based on momentary assessments to help anhedonic young adults regain pleasure, and (2) a tandem skydive as a non-invasive 'shock' to reboot the dysregulated reward system and help participants to carry out their lifestyle advice. Other topics we investigate in the NFNG study are, for example, PA reactivity, reward learning, self-esteem, and facial emotion identification. Because we highly value transparency in science we publish our data files and syntaxes on OSF. Please note that the data files are only to be used for the purpose of checking the analyses. If you would like to use the data for other purposes, please send a specified request to a.j.oldehinkel@umcg.nl.
