Why is it that in a country that is considered to be highly educated, in regards to health, so few of us are actually satisfied with our health and fitness levels?

We have access to virtually any information we require to live a healthier and more active lifestyle, but so few of us put this information into practice.
Why is it that in a country that is considered to be highly educated, in regards to health, so few of us are actually satisfied with our health and fitness levels?

We have access to virtually any information we require to live a healthier and more active lifestyle, but so few of us put this information into practice.

In October 2011, the AIA Group conducted a survey throughout the Asia Pacific, which spanning across 15 countries and included over 10,000 adults aged between 18 and 65 and included participants from various income and education brackets.

The survey revealed that Australia, one of the more established countries surveyed, came in at 7th place beside Taiwan, on the Healthy Living Index. This is a result of receiving a rating of 59 out of a possible 100, which falls below the overall average rating of 61.

The interesting thing about the survey is that it was revealed the following about the attitudes of Australian’s on health and fitness:
  • 96% of us agree that ‘living a healthy life is important’
  • 92% of us agree that ‘obesity among younger people is a worrying trend’
  • 78% of us want to lose weight
  • 93% of us agree that ‘there are definitely things I can do to improve my health’

Despite the level of interest in and understanding of improving the health of our nation, the following statistics prove that we Australians still have a lot of room for improvement:
  • Only 6.3 out of 10 of us are satisfied with our current health
  • 54% of us admit that our health is not as good as it was 5 years ago
  • On average we are getting 1.6 hours of sleep less than the desired amount per night
  • 55% of us don’t exercise on a regular basis.

The majority agree that something needs to be done but do nothing.



However, the minority are actively doing something positive with their health. There is a large gap between knowing that we need to improve our health and fitness, and taking action to make these improvements.

Here at Hervey Bay InfiniteHope, we work with clients to bridge this gap so they can make healthier food choices, lose unwanted weight, and gain a better quality of life. For those who are members of our centre (a growing minority) understand these facts and are working towards creating their ideal healthy lifestyle.

Have a Wonderful Week and Be Well.
