Being physically active and making smart food choices is good for your health. In addition to improving your physical health, moving more and eating better may also:
- Give you more energy.
- Reduce stress.
- Help you feel better about yourself.
- Relieve boredom or depression.
- Set an example for your family.
Your family and friends can be great sources of motivation and support as you adopt a healthier lifestyle. Ask them to join you in healthy eating and physical activity-it is important for them, too! By making healthy choices together, it may be easier to eat right and be active.
