How to Stay Healthy and Fit in the New Year - Be Active

The new year gives us the opportunity to begin a fresh commitment to living healthy. Being healthy not only protects us against disease and injury, it also provides us with the energy to have a higher quality of life!

"Be Active."
• Adults should be active for at least 30 minutes a day. Think about investing in a pedometer to track the distance you walk or run every day. You don’t have to run five miles or hit the gym for two hours to be in shape. Instead opt to use the stairs or walk to work.

• A favorite is housework…kill two birds with one stone! It all counts and does makes a difference.
