People
 often

 varying
 perceptions
 of
 health
 and
 physical
 activity
 based
 on
 their
 
social
 circumstances
 both
 past
 and

 as
 well
 as
 their
 ways
 of
 interpreting,

 and
 interacting
 with
 the
 sociocultural
 and
 economic
 determinants
 of

 It
 is
 possible
 to
 be
 part
 
of
 several
 cultures
 depending
 on
 where
 you
 live
 and
 whom
 you
 live
 around,
 e.g.
 your
 
gender
 group,
 emos,
 jocks,
 etc.
 Being
 a
 part
 of
 these
 cultures
 and
 sub-­‐cultures
 can
 have
 
positive
 and
 negative
 influences
 on
 health
 and
 individual’s
 perception
 on
 it,
 e.g.
 language
 
barriers
 between
 cultures
 can
 mean
 that
 someone
 is
 unable
 to
 obtain
 required
 
information
 about
 health
 such
 as
 where
 to
 seek
 health
 services
 or
 the
 number
 for
 an
 
ambulance,
 etc.
 Often
 people
 can
 be
 affected
 socially
 if
 society
 takes
 a
 negative
 
perception
 on
 their
 culture,
 e.g.
 Muslims
 and
 stereotypes.
 This
 can
 greatly
 affect
 and
 
influence
 one’s
 confidence,
 social
 and
 spiritual
 well
 being.
 Culture
 often
 comes
 with
 
religion
 and
 this
 is
 another
 strongly
 influencing
 factor
 on
 people’s
 health,
 e.g.
 dietary
 
habits,
 sexual
 health,
 spiritual
 health,
 and
 again
 society’s
 perception/judgments
 on
 their
 
religion
 can
 often
 be
 offensive
 and
 hurtful.
 
 
Friends
 and
 peer’s
 perception
 on
 health
 can
 exceedingly
 influence
 one’s
 motivation,
 
knowledge
 and
 opinion
 on
 health;
 for
 example
 if
 you
 were
 to
 have
 friends
 that
 took
 their
 
health
 and
 fitness
 seriously
 then
 its
 more
 likely
 that
 you
 will
 be
 motivated
 to
 do
 the
 
same,
 where
 as
 if
 you
 had
 friends
 with
 poor
 health
 and
 fitness
 and
 little
 motivation
 to
 
improve
 their
 habits,
 you
 will
 probably
 be
 influenced
 by
 this
 attitude.
 This
 is
 also
 
relevant
 in
 families,
 parents,
 etc.
 Being
 brought
 up
 in
 a
 family
 with
 a
 negative
 mindset
 on
 
the
 importance
 of
 maintaining
 health
 and
 regular
 physical
 activity
 can
 very
 often
 have
 
reoccurring
 effects
 on
 individual,
 for
 example
 having
 obese
 parents
 that
 have
 little
 
interest
 or
 motivation
 to
 change
 their
 habits
 could
 likely
 lead
 to
 obesity
 of
 the
 child
 and
 a
 
similar
 attitude
 towards
 it.
