The present study is amongst those few foremost attempts that investigated the maintenance mechanism of SWB and psychological resilience with an integrated model of SWB homeostasis and COR theory. The current research contributes in the field of SWB and psychological resilience particularly in the context of recurrent flood disasters in the non-western cultural context. Discussed below are some of the possible future directions,-

i. Although the study provided some of the major contributions in the field of SWB and psychological resilience literature; the future research is needed to replicate and magnify these research findings.

ii. Future research may include different stressful events to have a deeper understanding of how internal and external indicators act upon to maintain the homeostatic equilibrium and psychological resilience across cultures. Particularly, a cross-cultural study could provide insights into the culture-specific mechanisms.

iii. The future studies may focus upon the longitudinal research design over and above the cross-sectional research design in order to detect the pre and post-disaster level of SWB and psychological resilience; which may indeed turn helpful in detecting episodic negative mental health consequences and to plan effective intervention programs.

iv. Further research is required to assess the longitudinal aftereffects of the recurrent floods on the mental health of children, young and older adults for adequate age-specific psychosocial intervention programs.

v. There is a scope of future research with the inclusion of different ethnic groups from more than one specific place for effective evaluation of traditional/indigenous signs of disaster warnings and coping strategies which may help the authorities to plan culturally relevant survival strategies and disaster mitigation programs for the recurrent disaster survivors.
