Abstract :
The focus of this paper is to provide insight into the current state of five lifestyle choices, (smoking, alcohol, leisure, physical exercise, and nutrition habits) review the effects of these lifestyle choices on mortality and recommend future directions for lifestyle research. We found that while some lifestyle choices (alcohol and smoking) have a direct relationship with the mortality rate, there is an inverse relationship between physical activities, leisure activities, and good eating habits on the mortality rate. We also found that despite the decrease in the mortality rate, it is likely that there will not be a significant decrease in youth mortality. We propose that future works should forecast how different lifestyle choices practice by the youth will influence future mortality rate.
