Science tell us which activities are good for our health and which ones are bad for us. Despite knowing this, millions of people still do activities which are bad for them.
Why is this the case and what can be done to change it?
2. habit -> get used to doing sth because it’s enjoyable -> drinking, doing drug.
celebities and media being bad role models -> reckless driving, smoking -> prove manlihood.
parents are too lenient, overindulge
3. get educated. famous people should be more responsible. parent should be more strict.
Eventhough people have enough information of activities that have detrimental effect on health, they are still doing it. There are various reasons for this behaviour and measures could definitely be taken to handle it.
There are a number of explanations of why people keep doing thing that would have negative effect for their well-being. Firstly, they are doing it simply because it is very enjoyable. For example, although the damaging aspect of over consumption of alcohol, sugar or drug is well known, it is still very seductive to some people which would eventually become their habit. Secondly, the media and celebrities are doing a poor job advocate healthy lifestyles. In fact, what they are successful at is actively promote an unhealthy way of living such as reckless driving or smoking which is often symbolized as manlihood. Finally, parents in some country are too lenient to their kids and just not provide them enough guidance in general.
On the other hand, there are various steps that can be used to overcome those problems. Firstly, the government should handle the situation better by providing enough public education on this matter for their residents. For example, airtime for television show or radio broadcast on nutrition should be increased and should be put above those that are purely for entertainment. Secondly, the media and eminent public figures should be more responsible for what they advocate. In addition to that, parents should also not overindulge their offsprings, but instead give them ample example of good role models that they need to follow.
In conclusion, people will keep their unhealthy routines unless the government, parents and public figures actively focus on demonstrating the right behaviour and discipline.
