Commit to staying healthy

Staying healthy means more than taking medicine and seeing a doctor when you don’t feel well. It’s an ongoing commitment to your health—not only for you, but so you’ll be there for the people in your life.

It’s never too late to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Make it a priority to:

  • Eat healthy foods
  • Exercise
  • Wash your hands frequently to stop the spread of viruses
  • Schedule regular checkups with your doctor
  • Get preventive screenings, as recommended by your doctor
  • Take medications as prescribed and discuss any side effects with your doctor
  • Minimize hazards in your home that could cause falls or injuries
  • Manage your stress
