Living a healthy lifestyle can help reduce risk of disease, lengthen your life, and improve your daily productivity. Taking good care of your health can improve your physical, social, mental, social, and emotional health.

Your health is a top priority. Practice healthy habits by following these key tips:

  1. Visit your healthcare provider regularly: It is important to visit your provider at least once a year for a checkup. Also, if you are feeling sick, call your healthcare provider to set up an appointment.
  2. Enjoy a healthy and balanced diet: Include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fat free or low-fat milk, and lean meats into your diet. The USDA’s website Choose My Plate can help you and your healthcare provider choose a healthier diet.

  5. Avoid smoking, vaping, and use of tobacco products.

Taking these small steps can encourage and support a healthy lifestyle. It is important to take care of your health each day. Following these tips can help you feel more productive and more energized each day. Be sure to make an appointment with your primary care provider to stay up to date on annual screenings and exams.
