A global survey, conducted during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, confirms that people experienced dramatic changes in health behaviors, prompting them to consume more junk food and cut back on physical activity. In turn, this drove anxiety levels higher and disrupted sleep. K-State Research and Extension nutrition specialist Sandy Procter says the study provides a snapshot of how people reacted – positively and negatively – to changes in their normal routines.
