Many things we do, eat and drink affect our health. But changing some of our behaviors can help us and our families be as healthy as possible.
Eating foods that are good for us, being physically active, staying tobacco-free, reducing the amount of alcohol we drink and protecting ourselves from the sun go a long way in helping us prevent many diseases. Making healthy choices is not always easy, but feeling good is worth it!
We encourage you to learn more about ways that can help you stay at a healthy weight, eat food that is good for you, live an active and independent lifestyle, connect with family and friends, and help reduce your risk of getting injured or sick.
