Life doesnât always go as planned, and as a person ages into adult and middle adulthood those unexpected life changes can be significantly disruptive. As our readings described there are unexpected changes (non-normative life events) that influence our lives, but there are also the more silent changes that occur over time. These changes are cumulative and are based on our lifestyle.
Using sources such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, research some information on the leading causes of death related to lifestyle choices. Explain some of the factors that may influence a personâs choice regarding their lifestyle. Research some ways in which an individual can improve their lifestyle, especially during adulthood.
