Ever-increasing awareness of health and safety issues has led to various initiatives to promote healthier and more cautious living. This review considers the most effective approach in encouraging people to not just remember information but also to act upon it, focusing on the influence of mood state on the likelihood of initiating a change and then maintaining that behaviour. Empirical findings in relation to models of positive change are discussed. It is concluded that health and safety information can have an impact on mood regardless of the amount retained; furthermore, enhancing emotional state has important implications for compliance.
