Assignment 2: Health Behavior and Healthy Lifestyle
Health behavior is the activity undertaken by a person who believes him or herself to be healthy for the purpose of preventing health problems (Kasl and Cobb, 1966). Healthy lifestyles, in turn, are ways of living that promote good health and longer life expectancy.
The work of Weber and Bourdieu contributed to a model of health lifestyle formulated by Cockerham.
