Improved public health is a win both for the individual and for the society. Despite an increased knowledge there are still many people who live an unhealthy life. Much is researched regarding various interventions to a healthier lifestyle but not to the same extent on how healthcare should motivate individuals. The purpose of this study was to examine what motivates individuals to make healthy choices. The method used is a web-based sent out to companies both in Gotland and Norrbotten. Data was processed using SPSS. To find statistical correlations one-way analysis of variance ANOVA have been used and Post hoc Tukey test to see differences between groups. The result shows that women were more motivated to make lifestyle changes than men and they were those who rated their health as excellent or very high as were most motivated to make a healthy change. Stressful work environment affects their health but also make more unhealthy choices made. The participants experienced that scheduled exercise during working hours was what motivated them most. Conclusions drawn from this study is that reduced working hours, physical exercise during working hours, and feedback would reduce stress and contribute to that more healthy choices could be done.
