Haida HIP (Health Improvement Program) uses the ‘3 E’s’ to get you happier and healthier: Eating, Exercising & Emotions. The eating component encourages better nutrition by suggesting alternative food choices. The exercising component helps you to become more physically active by advising on activities that fit your lifestyle and interests. Lastly, the emotions component facilitates with group support programs and other methods shown to improve commitment and encourage long term changes. Before starting the program, you will need to see your family doctor so he/she can approve your participation. Once you begin the program, you will have opportunities to meet individually or as a group to monitor your progress as well as recharge your motivation and dedication to the lifestyle changes. These sessions may be luncheons, art therapy, cooking classes, walking groups, yoga, etc. To take part in Haida HIP, you must register with Robyn Boese at the Skidegate Health Centre.
