Our environments can have profound influences on our health behaviors and practices. The cues we encounter in our daily lives can affect what and how much food we consume, whether or not we adhere to health advice, and even how we prioritize or construe our health goals. Furthermore, environmental factors can interact with individual differences in physiology, psychology, and behavior to produce differential effects on health and well-being. In this speaker series, we offer different perspectives on how and why environmental factors and individual differences influence health behaviors, and suggest potential intervention points to help people overcome a variety of obstacles to achieving better health.
