A lifestyle is the way a person (or a group) lives.

Having a specific "lifestyle" implies a conscious or unconscious choice[?] between that group of characteristics and some other group of characteristics.

Lifestyles provide targeting for advertisers and marketers as they endeavor to match aspirations with products.

In sociology, a lifestyle may come pre-packaged with a matching appropriate worldview.

The word "lifestyle" apparently first appeared in 1939. (Previous generations may not have needed the concept.)
