The more you

move – the better for you. Even small amounts of regular physical activity can improve your health. Make simple changes like taking the stairs instead of the elevator and parking further from a store entrance.  Walk or bike to school or work.

Regular physical activity and a healthy diet can, lower your blood pressure and cholesterol; reduce the risk of illnesses such as diabetes or heart disease; give you more energy, reduced anxiety and depression; and help in maintaining a healthy weight.

The basics of eating healthy are choosing a variety of fresh,  natural (as opposed to processed) foods and enjoying them in moderation. Add more fresh fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and cut back on foods that have a lot of fat, salt, and sugar.
