Hello all,

Here is my topic sentence:
We live in a stressful world, and our daily life can sometimes make us feel tired, depressed and stressed.

Now, I want to use these three sentences as alternative options. I know when we have two options we can use "while, whilst and etc" as following:

"Some people go to the doctor for help, while others try alternative therapies."

How about if we have more than two options and want to show contrasting between ideas? How I can connect these three sentences together?


1) Some people go to the doctor for help
2) Others try alternative therapies
3) Some prefer to follow healthy diet, to do regular physical activity and then stick to it.

You probably need to reword the third option a bit or else it gets unwieldy, but here's one possibility.

Some people go to the doctor for help, while others try alternative therapies, and still others prefer to stick to a regime including a healthy diet with regular physical activity.

Today, I came across with such structure in a book, and it was something like the following:
Is it possible?

Some people go to the doctor for help, others try alternative therapies, but/or others prefer to stick to a regime including a healthy diet with regular physical activity.
