Self-help and self-improvement activities are growing among the Hispanic population, according to this March 2008 survey. AARP's self-help survey found that a majority of Hispanics ages 40 and older are engaging in self-help or self-improvement activities such as eating healthily, exercising regularly, seeking spiritual advice, and using self-help books, tapes or DVDs. The results revealed that in the past two years:
- 78% of respondents tried to eat a healthier diet
- 69% tried to exercise regularly
- 35% sought spiritual advice
- 30% used self-improvement books, tapes, or DVDs, and
- 26% attended self-help seminars.
