Health Tip: Develop Healthy Habits at Any Age10/22/13
(HealthDay News) -- No matter your age or physical condition,
it's never too late to make healthy lifestyle changes.
The U.S. Government's Weight-Control Information Network
suggests these preliminary steps:
- Imagine yourself as a healthier person who feels better, looks
better and has more energy. Then ask yourself how you can make
healthier food choices and get more exercise.
- Devise a plan to overcome any roadblocks. For instance, squeeze
in exercise after dinner or on your lunch break, or create a
healthier version of your favorite meal.
- Participate in fun physical activities, enlist support from
loved ones and treat yourself to appropriate rewards.
- Once you're in a healthy routine, keep yourself motivated by
maintaining a positive attitude, even if you backslide.
