Baby steps to a healthier you

Sally complained to me, “I’m frustrated! Guidelines for healthy blood pressure and blood sugar have been lowered, while the recommended amount of daily exercise has been raised.” As a result, Sally was ready to surrender the fight for fitness.

Maybe you can relate. Well, before you throw in the towel, remember that improving your health is a journey, and baby steps can help—even the very small ones. Forget perfection and go for one goal at a time.

Consider adding an extra ten minutes to your exercise routine—or decide to add fruits and vegetables to one more meal. Master that change, than make another. Simple changes can positively impact your blood sugar, blood pressure, and begin improving your health.

If you’re ready to call it quits on trying to stay healthy, surrender that thought today—and keep moving ahead.

Sally did.
