Live Science defines culture as the characteristics and knowledge of a particular group of people – encompassing language, religion, cuisine, social habits, music and art. Within the psychology community, culture can be defined as the shared rules that govern the behaviour of a group of people, enabling the members of that group to co-exist. Essentially, Hopewood’s healthy culture can have a range of positive impacts on behaviour and attitude.
Being able to support and be supported by a group of like-minded individuals allows greater likelihood of change. Modern society is surrounded by fast food, sedentary lifestyle and the need to work more. In contrast, the Hopewood philosophy promotes vegetarianism, plenty of water and freshly prepared juices, food combining, regular exercise and relaxation. It also emphasises the power of fresh air and spending some time in our natural environment. It’s an achievable and sustainable lifestyle, which helps people feel more energetic, reach and maintain a healthy weight, manage stress and get more out of life.
Our goal is to help you understand and maximise your unique, inner potential for good health and wellbeing … and this website will support you to achieve it!
