Healthy Living

Dr. Seuss said, “You are you.  Now, isn’t that pleasant?”  Healthy living is all about being yourself and taking care of yourself.  As Girl Scouts, we promise to “respect myself and others” and that’s exactly how we start building healthy relationships, healthy self-image, and healthy bodies. 

Why is healthy living important? "The more physically active girls are, the greater their self-esteem and the more satisfied they are with their weight, regardless of how much they weight. Eighty-three percent of very active girls say that physical activity makes them feel good about themselves." (The Girl Scout Research Institute, The New Normal? What Girls Say About Healthy Living (2006)) The way we feel about ourselves directly affects our relationships and how we show up in the world. Healthy living puts us on the path to be our best self and, in turn, make the world a better place!
