Overall, it was shown to be feasible to measure physiological biomarkers in samples which can be obtained non-invasively in an intensive day-to-day study. In addition, the findings in this thesis imply that PA has a positive effect on health.PA is inversely associated with somatic symptoms and detrimental biomarkers, both at the between-individual and the within-individual level. However, the associations found within individuals are heterogeneous, meaning that the associations differ between individuals. More research is necessary to better understand the effect of affect, the possible protective role of PA, and pathological effects of psychopathology in the long run.
