A great deal of focus, attention, and money has been spent to help us improve our lifestyles with the belief that this will lead to improved health. Without a doubt, there is potential. Reality, however, shows us that although some things are better, the trend is not what it should or could be. From my perspective there may be a better approach. Evidence from my work and from many others suggests that a comprehensive, pervasive, reciprocal, selfish, selfless, synergistic salutogenic or health causing approach would be more effective.
Data in this article documents a lack of progress using current methods in improving lifestyle behaviors. My colleagues (Kerry Sewell, Hui Bian and Joseph Lee) and I published this article, Limited Improvements in Health Behaviors Suggest Need to Review Approaches to Health Promotion: A Repeated, Cross-Sectional Study in the American Journal of Lifestyle Medicine to recommend a another approach.
If you have time and are able, I encourage you to read the article and share your thoughts and also let us know how you generate comprehensive improvements! Thank you.
Be selfish, selfless, & synergistic so everyone and everything benefits!
