Defining Health Lessons

KEY BODY POSITIVE MESSAGES FOR TEACHERS AND PARENTS

  • People can be healthy at different sizes.
  • How we define health and how we talk about health are both important.
  • Health includes physical, mental, and social well-being.
  • We can compromise one aspect of our health by focusing exclusively on another aspect.
  • We need to check if our health focus is on well-being or on looking a certain way or size.
  • Health can be presented as exercise and restricted eating but this approach is limited and sometimes harmful.
  • Health is being a full participant in life.
