LIFESTYLE is a term that has become very popular in recent years. In its own way, it is a psychological concept that is used to describe the way we evolve through life. As with any concept in life, it is a long process for all of us to go through, and each and everyone of us has his or her own rate of development.
LIFESTYLE is a combination of the terms: Lifestyle, Family, and Individual. Lifestyle is our general attitudes, interests, behaviors, and orientations. The word was first introduced by Austrian psychiatrist Alfred Adler in his 1930 book, The Case of Miss R. This concept is heavily based on the idea that a person’s basic personality is established early on in life, which is then maintained throughout their lives.
Adolph Ebell and looped their ideas around those of Sigmund Freud and John Bowlby. Both of these social psychologists focused on how our behaviors and lifestyles affect our conscious and unconscious minds. They combined these two concepts in order to come up with a model of behavior and life style. It was later adopted and used by such diverse people as adaptationists, deists, cultural realists, and even utilitarians. However, LIFESTYLE has its roots firmly rooted in econometrics. The book was a response to the findings of such studies as those of Bowlby and Freud.
The book talks about how we can create healthy lifestyle changes through a combination of behavioral modification and self-monitoring. Adler maintains that all of us have the ability to alter any unfavorable patterns and attitudes towards certain situations and people. By practicing healthy behavioral change and improving self-discipline through a self-imposed vigilance and self-observation routine, we can turn any negative or unhealthy pattern into something positive and advantageous to our well being. We can also improve on our habits and lifestyles through such practices as giving up some vices and adding others.
A key concept of LIFESTYLE is that one can live a happy, healthy, and independent life even if they are single. Many psychologists and sociologists believe that it is unhealthy to be living in a one-man or one-woman existence. Living a solo lifestyle allows you to focus on the here and now, rather than dwelling on past or future happiness. LIFESTYLE is a book that encourages you to not only look at your current situation, but to look at the past and future as well. You can apply this philosophy in your daily life to help you create healthy routines and habits. You can use your alone time for activities that will enhance your health and well being, such as yoga or other physically active lifestyles.
In the past, people who practiced LIFESTYLE had to be either very disciplined individuals who were interested in their health or extremely motivated people who were willing to go the extra mile to achieve their goals. However, as LIFESTYLE has evolved and become a much more mainstream method of helping people live healthier lives, there is no longer a need to focus on being either motivated or disciplined in order to make the best healthy lifestyle choices. The key now is to find a balance between your current desires and your long-term goals. By taking an introspective look at your current life-style choices, as well as at the time you have available to make new healthy lifestyle choices, you can begin to map out a path towards your ultimate goal of LIFESTYLE success.
