Have you ever wondered why you seem to get sick even when no one else does? Or maybe it's just the opposite. Maybe you never get sick, even when everyone else around you is absolutely miserable. Is it because of your lifestyle, your environment, your attitude? Do you ever wonder why other people don't seem to be taking their health as seriously as you do? Do you ever wonder what they think about their own health? Or yours? Would you be surprised to know they're probably wondering all the same things about you? In this course, you'll begin to explore all the ways that your environment, your beliefs, your community, and your presumptions about the world can impact the way you think, feel, and act regarding your health. You'll learn how stress can affect your health, and why different people react to stress in different ways, based on their own experiences and perspectives. You'll find ways to isolate your own negative behaviors, and intervene on your own behalf, so you can change your negative habits into healthy choices. As any doctor will tell you, simply being able to identify negative habits isn't always enough to convince a patient to change habits in order to live a healthier lifestyle. But once you begin to understand how everyone thinks about their own health, you'll be better prepared to help them think about their own health differently.
