In particular, the issue of formation of students' readiness to health preservation training during the process of physical education was studied as well as their desire for continuous self-improvement and health preservation for future independent living. It is extremely important to maintain those health related values, competencies and stereotypes that are formed and developed in the student years. Further these factors will determine the individuals' behavior and attitude to their health.

In our opinion, the current program of healthy lifestyle promotion for arts students was designed to combine the human sciences into a single course to facilitate a deeper study of psychic and functional features and capability increase of the human body reserves.
