Fact: we all need to be in good health. Fact: it takes work and sacrifice to maintain good health. Fact: we don’t want to hear it.
Hey, we’re human, so eating healthy, exercising, and staying away from bad habits aren’t easy. That’s why today’s site is so valuable.
It’s called SmallStep.gov. It’s mission is stated thusly:
“Want to get healthy, but don’t know how to begin? Start with our list of small steps and find some that work for you. Then let us help you separate healthy fact from fiction with our great selection of resources. Continue with the activity tracker, great recipes and newsletter. Finish with a healthier you!”
In other words, we’re not talking about a major lifestyle change, we’re talking small, easily manageable steps towards improving your health and lifestyle.
Most of us are fighting extra weight. I know that i am, anyway. So what do you do? Overhaul the way you live your life? No, you take small steps. For instance, how about walking to work? Using fat-free instead of whole milk? Walking during your lunch hour? Grilling, steaming, or baking instead of frying?
See, small steps aren’t so hard. And you have just begun living a healthier lifestyle!
Now, practically speaking, it’s going to take more work than that to turn into Jack Lalayne (who is still alive and healthy!). But you have to start somewhere.
The site is divided into sections for adults and teens, and also for kids. So click the link, and start taking your own small steps toward better health!
