Lesson 1 Introduction

  • Human’s life is permanently connected with facing different kind of circumstances that can have some kind of influence on individual’s health.
  • That impact can be either positive, neutral or negative.
  • This happens from the very beginning of your existence to the end, in your everyday life, in leisure time, at school, and at work.
  • The work is the area of life that we are going to take into consideration in this this course.
