What influences our Health & Health Behaviour? Determinants of Health Students & Health Behaviours Research indicates that undergraduate students lifestyle practices are not always optimal and raising awareness about healthy lifestyle behaviour is important at

undergraduate level (Mazurek Melnyk, Slevin, Militello, Teall, & McGovern, 2016). Todays students = Tomorrows Healthcare Professionals Pause, Reflect & Discuss

When youre drunk in a bar, you want to smoke constantly. When you have to go outside to smoke you wont smoke as much. (Berg et al., 2011) What conflicting health messages are evident?

First year university students are known to gain weight due to poor eating habits and lack of exercise (Gropper, Simmons, Connell, & Ulrich, 2012). Think about your diet and exercise patterns Do you eat a healthy balanced diet? Do you exercise regularly?

Another lifestyle risk for university students is that they can suffer from high stress levels, (Ferrara, 2009) and from increased incidence of depression and anxiety (Eisenberg, Speer, & Hunt, 2012). Think about your psychological health. Can you think of positive ways in which students can promote psychological health?
