Spouses Mimic Each Other's Habits

Oct 04, 2007
If you really want your partner to quit bad habit, the most sure way to do it is to exercise healthy way of life yourself.

According to a study conducted by Health Services Research, one of the spouses showing good health habits like exercising, eating healthy food, stop drinking alcohol or smoking as well as undergoing routine health procedures will unconsciously help the other spouse mirror the same habits.

This refers to spouses irrespective of their gender and behavior, said Jody Sindelar, co-author health economist and public health professor in the Yale School of Public Health.

As much as 6,072 men and women took part in the study that demonstrated considerable improvement in health habits if one of partners did. The changes were more evidently seen for such habits as smoking and drinking alcohol and getting vaccinated. If one of the partner smoked and the other one didn't, it was more than five times likely that the smoker would sooner or later stop smoking. The same results were for alcohol drinking.

The findings suggest that family plays a major role in improvement of health habits and specialists dealing with intervention programs should engage family members if they want more effective treatment.

The study was funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the National Institute on Aging.

omething else During 1980 to 1990, the stateattained dilubedogit growth rate in four years while itexperienced double digit growth rate in six years in subsequent decade. Gujarat experienced fasterpace of growth during 1980s when MadhavsinhSolanki and then Amarsinh Choudhary, both ofCongress, led the state government. In this period,the state had highest growth rate for its SDP. Thestate experienced the highest annual economic growth rate of 19.5 per cent during the six yearperiod of 1988-94. Since then this much of highrate is never attained. This period includes thereign of later years of Amarsinh Choudhary andinitial years of Chimanbhai Patel. As against this, thehighest rate of growth during the Narendra Modi era was only 14.77 per cent in 2003-04. Duringfive decades of its existence, the state of Gujarathad experienced 20 per cent or moregrowth rate only during six years. It had crossedmarvelous 40 per cent in 1988-89 and it was morethan 30 per cent in 1992-93 when Amarsinh Choudhary and Chimanbhai Patel ruled the staterespectively. However, there is not a single yearwhen the growth rate is more than twenty percent since 1993-94. In fact, it reached up to 19.33%in 1996-97. Barring it, the the SDP growth rate hasnever been more than 15 per cent during 1992-93 to 2008-09. In other words, the Narendra Modi erahas never reached the high growth rate of SDP thatwas achieved earlier. http://ymgucpmjkbv.com [url=http://uxgwapglr.com]uxgwapglr[/url] [link=http://fpakkhslrb.com]fpakkhslrb[/link]
