This study will collect data on physical activity, food consumption, stress, sleep, and alcohol consumption habits both before and after the national emergency for COVID-19 was put into place. This will help identify the health behavior changes taking place due to the COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. Data on past and current health behaviors will be self-reported by participants via a single online survey. The retrospective health behavior questions will be the same quantitative questions as the current health behavior questions so a direct comparison can be made. There will be a couple qualitative questions to assess what each participant feels are the greatest barriers or impacts to their current health behaviors. Participants will be recruited via convenient sampling. Data collected in this study will show a decline in at least one healthy behavior after the United States national emergency for COVID-19.
