Lifestyle reflects both the individual’s work and leisure habits in activities, attitudes, interests, opinions, values and income distribution. It reflects people’s self image or concept; the way they see themselves and believe to be seen by others. Lifestyle is a composite of motivations, needs, and wants. It is affected by factors such as culture, family, reference groups and social class.
Lifestyle is the interests, opinions, behaviours, and behavioural orientations of an individual, group, or culture. Life-style is a combination of determining intangible or tangible factors. Tangible factors focus specifically on demographic variables, i.e. a person’s demographic profile. Intangible factors relate to a person’s psychological aspects, such as personal values, preferences and perspectives.
A lifestyle typically reflects an individual’s attitudes, way of life, values, or world view. Lifestyle is a means of forging a sense of self and to create cultural symbols that resonate with personal identity. Not all aspects of a lifestyle are voluntary. Surrounding social and technical systems can constrain the lifestyle choices available to the individual and the symbols she/he is able to project to others and the self.
The lines between personal identity and the everyday doings that signal a particular lifestyle become blurred in modern society. Lifestyle may include views on politics, religion, health, intimacy, and more. All of these aspects play a role in shaping someone’s lifestyle.
