Sex, Money, Sleep And Cooking: The Health Connection

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- HealthcareDIY, LLC announced today that it has published detailed findings from its "HealthcareDIY 2013" survey on its newly launched website http://HealthcareDIY.com. This in-depth survey covered a broad array of health and lifestyle topics, and was taken by over 2,000 respondents.

"We wanted to dig deep with this survey to uncover some real-life underlying trends," said Jane Sarasohn-Kahn, MA, MHSA, Co-Founder of HealthcareDIY. "What we have discovered is an undeniable relationship between how well people sleep, how regularly they save money, how satisfied they are with their love lives, how often they cook at home, and their overall perceptions of health."

For example, people who say they don't get enough sleep rate their health much lower than those who are good sleepers. People who report cooking at home 5-7 days a week feel healthier and happy and more effectively manage their weight than those who cook at home less often.

As far as money goes: you don't need to be a Rockefeller or Gates to achieve better health. But people who regularly save money say they're in better health and are more ready to tackle the day than people who don't put money away on a regular basis. Furthermore, whole health includes a healthy sex life, so it's no surprise that people who are happy with their sex lives rate their health status much higher than people who are unhappy with their intimate lives.

These are just a few examples of the survey findings; a detailed overview can be found at http://healthcareDIY.com/health-america-2013/
