ABSTRACT
This article analyses the results of an empirical study of the structure of attitudes towards health behaviour in students of the age of 25-35 carried out with the help of a psychological questionnaire. The author stresses the disharmony in the development of cognitive, emotional-evaluative, and conative-behavioural components of health attitude. The conclusion is made that the prevalence of the cognitive component of the attitude does not ensure a strong attitude towards health behaviour.
