Abstract


Health education is a very important aspect of modern public health, because it should promote health-related lifestyle. Epidemiological data suggest that a significant percentage of both adolescents and adults are characterized by unhealthy lifestyle, especially bad food habits, wrong body posture, physical inactivity, and disturbed biological clock. In the literature, there are a lot of papers which analyzed the effectiveness of lifestyle modification programs. The most important predictors of the effectiveness of these programs could be psychosocial factors which have a strong influence on shaping health behavior, attitude towards health and disease, and lifestyle. One of these factors is the sense of responsibility for the health.
