Is young adulthood better characterized as a period of health-improving lifestyles or health-impairing lifestyles? Explain why. Answer: Regarding health, young adulthood can be characterized as a period of health- impairing lifestyles. This is due to many young adults attaining a new degree of freedom which they haven’t experienced before. This new freedom can enable young adults to experiment with new things and make friendships in the wrong crowds. By doing this, it is a way for them to try to fit in with the rest of society and gain acceptance from other people. Surprisingly, there is a higher mortality rate among young adults than adolescents. This is, however, not due to chronic health problems but rather due to acquiring bad habits because of peer pressure or societal pressure. Some other problems that can occur during young adulthood is inactivity, unhealthy diet, obesity, substance use and abuse and the decline in reproductive health care and regular health care. Many of these issues are caused by developing patterns of bad habits like not eating breakfast every morning, not eating regular meals, relying on snacks throughout the day, eating excessively, smoking, drinking alcohol, doing drugs, not exercising at all, and even being able to not attain sufficient amounts of sleep throughout the night. There have been studies that show that a lack of sleep can lead to certain cardiovascular diseases, shortened life span as well as an increase in cognitive and motor impairment. These can each lead to vehicle accidents and other work-related accidents.
