Positive Health and Financial Practices: Do Diet, Sleep, and Physical Activity Make a Difference?
This poster will describe a study of the relationship between three health-related practices, diet, sleep, and physical activity, and performance of ten positive personal finance practices. Data from 8,128 respondents came from a 20-question online quiz that provides a simultaneous assessment of individuals' health and financial practices. OLS regressions were used to examine associations between financial behavior and health behavior, controlling for demographic variables. Positive associations were found between financial practices and three key health practices: diet, sleep, and physical activity. This study adds to existing literature about intersections of health and financial wellness.
