Healthy living starts with the right choices

Who doesn’t want great energy, strong muscles, and an immune system that resists most bugs, viruses, and age-related ailments? But except for those few genetically blessed, for most of us getting — and staying — healthy is a long-term commitment.

There are many components to healthy living. The first step is to take a good look at your current health status. Be honest with yourself. Are you eating well-balanced meals with protein and a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables? Are you at a suitable weight for your age and height? Are you getting enough exercise? And last but not least, do you handle the stresses in your life relatively well?

By figuring out where you are today, you can start making healthy goals. Rather than overwhelming yourself by trying to change everything at once, focus on small, achievable goals, such as creating a healthy eating plan.

Let’s say for example that you often skip meals or grab junk foods on the fly because of your busy schedule. Stocking your desk drawers or car with healthy snacks such as fruit or trail mixes can keep you away from the office vending machine. Or, consider adding Ensure® to your diet, which can be used as a healthy snack or meal replacement.

Making adjustments to your lifestyle could take time, but ultimately it’s about a better you. The small steps you take today can pave the way for living a healthy life in the future.
