The article discusses the problems of the relationship of the physical health of a person and his subjective well-being. The relevance of the research topic is substantiated. An analysis of current research in Ukraine and abroad was carried out. The psychological directions were studied on the problem of researching the health, healthy lifestyle and subjective well-being of the individual. It is determined that in psychology there are many approaches to understanding these categories, but they are not complete. Studies of well-being from various methodological grounds naturally lead to uncertainty in the structure of aspects of the phenomenon being studied. It has been established that subjective well-being is practically a reflection of the psychological health of an individual, but does not boil down to it at all. Studies on health-promoting behaviors are also becoming important now. There is increasing evidence that subjective well-being affects human health and vice versa, health can affect subjective well-being. On the basis of the analysis made, it was concluded that it is important to take into account the various interactions of these phenomena. The development of a theoretical model and basic hypotheses for further empirical research continues. It has been established that in the psychology of health there are many theories and approaches that have a number of methodological and research problems. The prospect of further research is to overcome the difficulties of a methodological nature, the development of theoretical foundations and strengthening the connection of psychology with medicine and related sciences.
