Health becomes more relevant when it comes to professionals whose job is to provide people with services that maintain an optimum state of mental, physical and social well-being. Sedentary life styles have serious consequences on public health and reflect poor self – esteem and a lower health related quality of life. Health care professionals differ from general population in regards to the nature of their work, stress and burnout. Hence this study was done to know if Health care professionals â€Å¾Practice what they preach others.‟ Aim: To assess the lifestyle among the doctors working in dental and medical colleges in Patna, Bihar.
