Do you know what it means to be healthy?
“Being healthy” comes down to a lot more than eating a couple vegetables every now and again. Did you know that 678,000 U.S. deaths are attributed to nutrition-related diseases every year? That’s crazy!
On the flip side, did you know studies show that getting regular exercise, eating well, and staying away from bad habits like cigarettes can add years onto your life?
And yet, it’s so easy to put “being healthy” at the bottom of our priorities. We’re too busy to make dinner, so we eat fast food. We’re too tired to wake up early, so we don’t go to the gym. Every day, we make little choices that put our health on the back-burner for convenience’s sake.
Little do we realize we’re inconveniencing ourselves in the long-run when we play down the importance of making healthy choices in the short-run.
Healthy living requires careful attention to nutrition and exercise. For a lot of us, this means changing our behavior and staying away from bad habits.
But, rest assured that the payoff of eating well and keeping active is worth it! Not only will your body thank you for it, your mind will, too!
Did you know that just 20 minutes of exercise can boost your mood for 12 hours?
Even better, did you know that as little as 15 minutes of physical activity a day can boost your lifespan by three years?
Halcyon’s next campaign will focus on facts of healthy living. We will be answering not only what it means to be healthy and why you should want to be, but sharing the tools to unlock a healthy lifestyle.
