Abstract

Almost daily news reports point to how lockdown, ‘the new normal’ for most, is influencing behaviours relevant to physical health like alcohol consumption and taking physical activity. But how is health behaviour changing, among whom, and will any changes last post-lockdown? We argue that health polarisations are tied with broader social inequalities with implications for whether any lifestyle changes will endure. Psychological and social science research must respond with creative, collaborative and innovative research to guide health policy and practice in the post-lockdown world serving the interests of all citizens.
