10 ways to stay healthy

 Someone's hero

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
  • Keep your hands clean to stop the spread of germs
  • Schedule regular checkups with your doctor
  • Get screenings regularly, as recommended by your doctor
  • Take medications as prescribed and note any side effects to discuss with your doctor
  • Minimize hazards in your home that could cause falls or injuries
  • Manage your stress
  • Make sure you get a full night’s sleep
  • Find information and resources you need on MyHumana.com (link opens in new window) for upcoming surgeries or ongoing health issues
