Why Choose Us
You have a lot going on right now with school, friends, family, maybe even sports or work. It’s easy to think you don’t have time or energy for healthy habits, but there’s a better way to see it.
All of these things are good to do—and they feel good once you’ve done them—but don’t feel overwhelmed or pressured to make lots of big changes all at once. Today, do one little thing to take care of yourself. Then do it again tomorrow.
Physical activity is such an important part of healthy development and personal wellbeing. When you break a sweat doing anything like walking, jogging, biking, dancing, or playing your favorite sport, you’re elevating your heart rate. This keeps your body and mind sharp and it can help boost your mood, too. Even if you can’t get in the recommended 60 minutes of daily exercise, just going for a brisk 10-minute walk around the block can make a huge difference.
It’s a temptation to stay up late, but missing out on sleep isn’t just a drag when you’ve got to wake up. You need at least eight or nine hours to give your body the rest it needs to serve you the rest of the day. If you aren’t getting enough, here are some tips.
Remember: choosing health is something you can do every day. These healthy choices keep your body fueled and your mind strong. To learn more about our Choose Health program, speak to your Mercy Medical Group physician.
