The development of society also requires special care for health. Health is a special human capital that benefits individuals and society. It is defined by the state of harmony established between the natural gifts received by people at birth and the choices set for a particular lifestyle throughout life.

The goal of this paper is to present several ways to balance the chosen lifestyle, to identify and eliminate the causes of the most common diseases and to show its influence on the entire societal development.

Research focuses on the role and effects of good changes in nutrition and behavior. When the right lifestyle is adopted, change is a gain (Reunen, 2015), with individual and social consequences. To put health problems into daily activities and habits involves identifying factors that directly affect people’s lives and labor – such as shortcomings, dissatisfaction, or stress. In order to achieve better results, people use to adhere to different principles; however, they often receive opposite effects, which they know to read them correctly, their value and needs, and the real conditions of life (Pakholoc, 2013).

The objective of the paper is based on the challenges offered to all categories of people who decide to change their behavior and lifestyle by adopting alternatives to stress, sedentary and dysfunctional nutrition. Two hypotheses are considered (cognitive and emotional) to deepen the analysis between the desire to take a new initiative to get health and to develop new relationships between different actions such as the decision to change, the abandonment of wrong habits and the creation of a new mentality, for the individual and society benefit.
