How does Religion Affect a Healthy Lifestyle?

I found this study to be very interesting, which showed the connection between religious involvement and living a healthy life in postmenopausal women. The women, in the Women’s Health Initiative observational study all had similar qualities to fit the study’s parameters. They looked at the women’s worship attendance and compared it with healthy choices, like limited alcohol consumption, non-smoking, having preventive medical tests, exercising regularly, and eating habits.

Can Living a Healthy Lifestyle Cause Harm?


Many people are striving to live healthy lifestyles, but some people go the extremes. People start obsessing over their exercise routines and food habits. Those that exercise a lot to live healthy may encounter a natural high from an activity, such as running where they just cannot stop. Others try to eat right, but soon become obsessed and start to take control of what they put into their bodies.
