Objective Allostatic load (AL) reflects the deteriorating influences of stress on the body and comprises a selection of biological markers. AL is associated with negative life events, stress, and negative affect (NA), as well as poor health outcomes. However, whether AL is also associated with positive affect (PA) is not clear. The present study therefore explores the association between PA and AL, accounting for age, sex, NA, and health behaviors. Methods Data of 45,225 individuals from the… Expand
Changes in Emotional Vitality as a Predictor of Levels and Change in Allostatic Load: Longitudinal Results From the Whitehall II Cohort Study
TLDR
This study found that an increase in emotional vitality was associated with subsequent lower levels, but not rate of change, of AL over time, and further research is needed to address the relationship between trajectories of psychological well-being and physiological dysregulation. Expand
Allostatic load and women’s brain health: A systematic review
TLDR
First, men appear to have higher allostatic load than women and women show gender-specific variation for numerous factors such as age, race/ethnicity, adversities, social support, and health behaviors that influence associations between allostatics load and mental health. Expand
Positive affect and functional somatic symptoms in young adults
TLDR
High PA was significantly related to current lower levels of FSS, but the effect was small and further research on individual variations in affect is needed to obtain more insight in their contribution to FSS. Expand
Allostatic Load and Its Impact on Health: A Systematic Review
TLDR
It is indicated that allostatic load and overload are associated with poorer health outcomes and an integrated approach that includes both biological markers and clinimetric criteria is recommended. Expand
Cross-Sectional and Longitudinal Associations Between Psychosocial Well-Being and Cardiometabolic Markers in European Children and Adolescents
TLDR
The hypothesis that a healthier life-style may be one mechanism through which higher well-being is linked with lower abdominal obesity and fewer other cardiometabolic disorders in young populations is supported. Expand
Happiness and Health.

TLDR
Interventions have yet to demonstrate substantial, sustained improvements in subjective well-being or direct impact on physical health outcomes, but this field shows great potential, with the promise of establishing a favorable effect on population health. Expand
Psycho-social factors associated with mental resilience in the Corona lockdown
TLDR
In comparison with other resilience factors, good stress response recovery and positive appraisal specifically of the consequences of the Corona crisis were the strongest factors. Expand
Elevated levels of cortisol in hair precede acute myocardial infarction
TLDR
Middle-aged persons with acute myocardial infarction had significantly elevated cortisol levels during the month before the cardiac event, and chronic stress seems to be a new promising risk factor for AMI. Expand
Anxiety and Depression in Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnoea before and after Continuous Positive Airway Pressure: The ADIPOSA Study
TLDR
CPAP may be effective at reducing the lack of positive affect, a well-established health-protective factor and not until depression and anxiety disorders related to OSA are accurately measured in clinical and research settings will it be possible to obtain robust conclusions on the occurrence and amelioration of these symptoms after treatment. Expand
Stress, Well-Being and Reproductive Success.
TLDR
The potential for stress to disrupt, and sometimes facilitate reproduction, including the key role that glucocorticoids play is discussed, as well as a number of physiological biomarkers, which have the potential to assess well-being and the role of stress on reproduction. Expand

Allostatic load as a marker of cumulative biological risk: MacArthur studies of successful aging
TLDR
AL was a better predictor of mortality and decline in physical functioning than either the syndrome X or primary mediator components alone and the findings support the concept of AL as a measure of cumulative biological burden. Expand
Positive affect and health-related neuroendocrine, cardiovascular, and inflammatory processes.
TLDR
It is shown that positive affect in middle-aged men and women is associated with reduced neuroendocrine, inflammatory, and cardiovascular activity and independent of psychological distress, supporting the notion that positive well-being is directly related to health-relevant biological processes.

TLDR
This systematic review examines the empirical literature that quantifies the allostasis and allostatic load construct and evaluates the social, environmental, and genetic antecedents of AL as well as its predictive utility for a variety of health outcomes. Expand
Daily positive events and inflammation: Findings from the National Study of Daily Experiences
TLDR
Daily positive events may serve a protective role against inflammation, and interpersonal positive events were more predictive of lower IL-6 overall and lower fibrinogen in women than non-interpersonal positive events. Expand
A non-linear association between self-reported negative emotional response to stress and subsequent allostatic load: Prospective results from the Whitehall II cohort study
TLDR
Evidence is provided for a more nuanced understanding of the role of negative emotions in long-term physical health and the risk of physiological dysregulation in civil service workers from the Whitehall II cohort. Expand
Neuroendocrine and cardiovascular correlates of positive affect measured by ecological momentary assessment and by questionnaire
TLDR
It is concluded that positive affect is related to biological responses in the laboratory and everyday life that may be health protective and substantially stronger when positive affect was assessed by aggregating EMA samples than with questionnaire measures. Expand
Social Relationships, Gender, and Allostatic Load Across Two Age Cohorts
TLDR
Evidence from two cohorts provides support for the hypotheses that positive social experiences are associated with lower allostatic load, consistent with the hypothesis that social experiences affect a range of biological systems, resulting in cumulative differences in risks that in turn may affect arange of health outcomes.

PURPOSE Dispositional optimism is a psychological trait associated with cardiovascular disease outcomes in adults. However, it is not known whether these associations are present in adolescents. WeExpand
Positive affect and markers of inflammation: discrete positive emotions predict lower levels of inflammatory cytokines.
TLDR
This work examines the link between dispositional positive affect and one potential biological pathway between positive emotions and health-proinflammatory cytokines, specifically levels of interleukin-6 (IL-6), finding support for this hypothesis across two studies. Expand

TLDR
An operational definition of allostatic load is presented, along with preliminary evidence of its predictive validity in relation to salient outcomes of aging, to provide the basis for a more comprehensive assessment of major risks in the aging process. Expand
