Having a healthy relationship with food and your body

When you have a healthy relationship with food and your body, you set yourself up for a whole range of broader physical and mental health benefits.

Feeling good about your body, enjoying exercise and having a good relationship with food are all things that support a range of positive health outcomes – including minimising your risk of developing an eating disorder.

Negative body image is a big issue for many people, and can lead to unhealthy practices such as dieting and over-exercising, but is also associated with mental health concerns like depression and anxiety.

The good news is that it is possible to take practical, everyday steps to having a positive body image and incorporating a balanced approach to food and exercise.
