- Displaying healthy habits, such as adhering to healthy diets or getting adequate sleep, has been linked to positive mental health outcomes in the past.
- We aimed to study the impact that frequency of healthy habits (such as exercise, diet, sleep, etc) had on mental health.
- The purpose of our study was to explore the relationship between consistency of healthy habits and mental wellbeing, resilience, and motivation through a self-reported survey.
- We found significant correlations between consistent healthy habits and positive mental health. Conversely, frequent negative habits were correlated to other negative habits (such as fast food consumption and low exercise)
- Based on our findings, we suggest that consistency and frequency of habits is a key factor in having positive mental health outcomes.
- Additionally, we suggest limiting frequency of negative habits, like fast food consumption, due to poor mental health outcomes and influence on development of other negative habits
