New Delhi: Women who spend time around peers who have a healthy lifestyle are more likely to eat well and exercise, a study has pointed out. A survey of 3,610 women by Deakin University researchers found that they were most likely to follow the eating and physical activity behaviours of those around them.
The importance of social norms in influencing a healthy lifestyle highlighted by the study opens up opportunities for developing intervention strategies aimed at modifying social norms, Ball said. IANS
