Stay In, Work Out

Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean you can’t keep moving! Make the most of the great indoors this week with jumping jacks, leg lifts, sit-ups or an at-home fitness video. Encourage your family to think up active games and join in on the fun.

Fall into Festive Fitness

Autumn’s crisp air makes it the perfect time of year for outdoor exercise. Do yard work, take the dog to the park or try a round of kickball or soccer. Add some fun to your routine this week and you’ll be moving in no time!

Squash your Produce Slump

Add some healthy variety to your diet this week by enjoying fall’s bounty! Stop by your local farmer’s market and add fresh beets, squash, okra or pumpkin to your plate. These hearty vegetables are full of fiber and make a great Meatless Monday entree.

Rethink your Routine

Fall is upon us- time to wind down from summer vacation and settle back into a regular routine. Take time this week to reevaluate your schedule and priorities for the coming season. Planning reduces stress and ensures that healthy habits find their way into your daily life.

Go the Extra Mile

Make an effort to boost your activity this week. Make moderate increases in the time, intensity, or number of your current workouts. Building on your usual exercise routine will result in more activity over time.

Labor Less, Move More

Relax and refocus this Labor Day with summer games from your childhood! Celebrate with red rover, capture the flag or a three legged race. Encourage your family to play along and schedule a meet-up next week for another round!

Make an Appointment with Prevention

Can you remember the last time you saw your doctor? If not, it’s time to make an appointment this Monday. General check-ups can catch problems early and ensure timely treatment and better health.

Time for a Change of Pace?

If you’re getting bored with your exercise routine, switch it up this week! Varying your activity means you’ll work new muscle groups, plus you’ll be more likely to stick with it if you’re having fun.

Snack Well, Eat Better

There’s nothing wrong with the occasional snack! In moderation, they can reduce mealtime binging and actually lead to less calories consumed. Feeling peckish this week? Opt for raw veggies, nuts, fruit, whole grain crackers or low fat cheeses.
