Research continually confirms that lifestyle changes can improve health. In this Discussion, you will address how changes in lifestyle can influence the illness-wellness continuum of an individual and a community.
Choose a type of lifestyle change (e.g., an environmental, occupational, or behavioral change) that can clearly alter the health of an individual, positively or negatively.
Review the two articles I attached that address lifestyle change, the type of lifestyle change I think these articles will support is behavioral change. The articles should allow you to draw evidence-based conclusions about the following questions:
- In what positive ways can the lifestyle change affect an individual?
- Are there any negative ways the change could affect an individual? If so, how?
- Would this lifestyle change on the part of an individual have an impact on the greater community? If so, how?
- How might these articles inform decisions or actions that you might take, or encourage others to take, in the future?
