During the month of October I will be sharing 31 actions steps to better health. The first action step towards a healthier you, is recognizing the need to change or modify an unhealthy behavior, or add a healthy behavior.
Making better choices takes work and an awareness that the every choice has an impact on our health. The vast knowledge we have to prevent cancer, heart disease, and other chronic diseases is staggering and overwhelming. But, you cannot afford to ignore what is good for you.
What I learned from my research influences my countless daily decisions. Every bite of food either increases or decreases my odds of spending a few more years with my family. Half an hour of exercise in the morning makes for better interactions all day. A restful night of sleep gives me energy to tackle the next day. I am more engaged and in-charge of my life when I recognize the choices and actions that lead to a healthier life.
So how about you, do you recognize an opportunity exist for you to have a healthier life?
