Being the healthiest version of you means eating a variety of nutritious healthy foods, engaging in regular physical activity, getting adequate, good quality sleep and managing your mental health and wellbeing.
Establishing healthy life habits not only helps to manage weight and reduce the risk of developing a number of chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension (high blood pressure), arthritis, certain types of cancer as well as mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety. It also helps improve mood, energy levels and improves the likelihood of a longer, healthier life.
