The proliferation of lifestyle-related diseases is now a serious social issue in the world. To prevent those diseases, we propose a surrounding healthcare environment where people can improve their lifestyle naturally. The proposed healthcare environment senses information from surrounding sensors, and detects opportunities to build up the user's health associated with the sensed information, and finally assists users in being aware of the opportunities naturally on the pervasive computing environment. To stimulate the users into natural improvement of their lifestyles, this paper proposes schemes to advise the stepwise improvement of the undesired lifestyle and to provide the natural stimulation through user's daily life such as shopping, exercising, and so on. As a result, the users without strong awareness of their health can improve their health conditions continuously and comfortably and raise the awareness of their health gradually and naturally until they can manage their health by themselves.
