The activities you get up to affect the health of your body, that much we all agree on. But why do people do things, like smoke or drink, that they know might harm them? And why is it sometimes so hard to do exercise or eat in ways that we’ve been told will make us healthier? Can we all behave in ways that will make us well beings?
In this zone there could be psychologists looking at why some people can’t help but drink too much, or looking for evidence of the positive mental health effects of exercise on the brain, or trying to work out why some people love sport and physical activity, and whether we can then help others who find themselves in different social situations, or helping companies keep their employees healthy and happy.
