|Be Physically Active Every Day
Many chronic diseases can be prevented with modest exercise, in some cases as simple as walking for half an hour.
Eat a Nutritious Diet
Avoid excessive portions. Increasing fruit and vegetable consumption is a central part of a healthier diet, and good overall nutrition lowers the risk of getting heart disease, stroke, cancer, and osteoporosis.
Get Preventive Screenings
A simple test like a cholesterol screen or a blood pressure check can reveal current health status and identify a need to adjust diet or behavior.
Make Healthy Choices
Avoid tobacco and drugs as well as the abuse and underage use of alcohol and make smart and safe choices in your everyday life.
