 Forward Thinking People Make More Healthy Choices

A new study conducted by American researchers has found that people who are more concerned about the future consequences of their actions were more likely to take care of themselves physically by opting for exercise and healthy eating habits.

U.S researcher Jeff Joireman has tried to explain the pattern in his research titled "Promotion Orientation Explains Why Future Oriented People Exercise and Eat Healthy: Evidence from the Two-Factor Consideration of Future Consequences-14 Scale".

Joireman and his colleagues created a new model to help predict people's health-related behaviours.

The model is based on how every individual view immediate and long-term consequences of their habits.

This study has been published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.
