    Healthy lifestyles are important for human health and represent an indicator of the quality of life. Only a healthy man can be happy and content, and human health is also linked in most cases to a healthy lifestyle. The purpose of this Master’s thesis was to identify students’ lifestyles and attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. I have obtained my data from surveying students. The survey involved 121 students who at the time of studying had courses about a healthy lifestyle and 115 students who did not have courses about a healthy lifestyle at the time of studying. The results of the survey showed, that students are aware of the recommendations of a healthy lifestyle and are aware of the importance of the recommendations on healthy nutrition. However, the proportion of students following the recommendations and living with a healthy lifestyle is low. Likewise, the proportion of students abiding by the recommendations for physical activity is low. I estimate that approximately two thirds of students (70,8 %) comply with the recommendations on the quantity of sleep. Statistically significant differences have also emerged as regards the importance of taking into account certain nutritional recommendations. Students who at the time of studying had courses about healthy lifestyle have given greater importance to nutritional recommendations than students who at the time of studying did not have courses about a healthy lifestyle. On the basis of the results of the survey, I propose that certain measures promoting regular physical activity and eating habits should be implemented. Students should be provided with information on how to manage stress, negative impacts alcohol consumption and smoking have, and on the effects of using electronic media. These measures would influence students’ attitudes and behaviour in order for them to develop a healthy lifestyle.
