Personal Health Practices and Coping Skills

Personal Health Practices and Coping Skills

Personal Health Practices and Coping Skills include individual actions that prevent diseases and promote self-care, coping with challenges, developing self-reliance, solving problems and making choices that enhance health. Lifestyle choices include individual choices, but also the influence of social, economic, and environmental factors on the decisions people make about their health. Research points to the growing recognition that personal life "choices" are greatly influenced by the socioeconomic environments in which people live, learn, work and play.
