Abstract

In adolescence, health-related behaviors and protective factors represent a primordial preoccupation concerning prevention. Among health-risk behaviors, smoking and drinking, among health-enhancing behaviors, physical activity and diet control are the most frequently studied. The present research focuses on the relationship between these health-related behaviors and certain protective factors. Data were collected among 1977 students from grade 9th to grade 12th in Transylvania, Romania, in the spring of 2006, with self-administered questionnaires. Data from regression analysis of the health-related behaviors draw our attention to the fact that health-enhancing behaviors are not merely the absence of health-risk behaviors but more a consequence of health-conscious decision. Sports activity and diet control were determined by future-orientedness and self-regulatory behavior, whereas the lack of the belief in the meaning of life ('purpose and connection' variable) was the most important predictor of substance use. A special case of self-efficacy was based on the results in which this variable was in relation to both health behavior types with positive direction. Our findings support the role of protective psychological effects in developing youth's health-conscious behaviors as well as in preventing health-risk behaviors.
