Healthy Weights

Your weight isn't a good indicator of your overall health. Good health depends on a variety of factors. The benefits of a healthy lifestyle are far greater than the benefits of focusing solely on weight measurements.

Practice a healthy lifestyle

Focus on your health instead of your weight and appearance. You can do this through:

  • Healthy eating
  • Active living
  • Fostering a positive body image and improving your self-esteem

Body image and self-esteem

Body image and self-esteem can have serious effects on health, particularly if they are negative. Left unrecognized, these negative thought patterns and resulting behaviours might lead to conditions such as depression, stress, anxiety and eating disorders.
