Lifestyle

A person's wellness depends upon many factors. Amongst these are genetics, diet, activities, and stress. Aside from genetics collectively the others can be expressed as one's lifestyle.

Posted on 24 March 2015 |

Lifestyle is defined as the way in which a person lives.  Lifestyle is expressed in both work and leisure behavior patterns and (on an individual basis) in activities, attitudes, interests, opinions, values, and allocation of income. It also reflects people's self image or self concept; the way they see themselves and believe they are seen by the others. Lifestyle is a composite of motivations, needs, and wants and is influenced by factors such as culture, family, reference groups, and social class.

Much has been written about lifestyle and its impact on health, or wellness. Here are some concise videos which support the views we believe in.
