Life-Satisfaction and Self-Compassion : A Quantitative Study Among Older Adults (English)
Abstract [sv]

Sammanfattning

Förståelsen kring ett hälsosamt åldrande blir alltmer viktig i ett samhälle där gruppen äldre väntas öka under kommande år. Trots att sambandet mellan välmående och självmedkänsla är dokumenterat finns inga kända studier som undersökt sambandet i en svensk, äldre population.

I föreliggande studie utforskades sambandet mellan livstillfredsställels och självmedkänsla med deltagare från en svensk, nationell studie om åldrande och omsorg, kallad the Swedish National study on Aging and Care – SNAC. Även könsskillnader i de båda variablerna undersöktes. Resultaten visade att skillnader mellan kvinnor och män gällande livstillfredsställelse var obefintlig medan män skattade sig högre på självmedkänsla. Ett positivt samband mellan livstillfredsställelse och självmedkänsla fastställdes i gruppen. Självmedkänsla och ålder visade sig vara betydande för att predicera ett hälsosamt åldrande.

Abstract

The understanding of a successful aging is getting more important since the group of older adults is expected to grow over the next years. Even if the relationship between well-being and self-compassion is documented, no known studies have been made to investigate the relationship in a Swedish population of older adults.

In this study the relationship between life-satisfaction and self-compassion was explored with participants from the Swedish National study on Aging and Care – SNAC. Furthermore the difference between women and men was also studied. The results showed no differences between men and women in life-satisfaction, but men valued themselves to have more self-compassion than women did. A positive relationship between life-satisfaction and self-compassion was confirmed. Self-compassion and age proved to be of importance for predicting a successful aging.
