As the seasons transition and the environment takes on a new palette of colors, it’s a wonderful opportunity to embark on a path towards a healthier, more active lifestyle. Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare is extending a warm invitation for you to be part of the Healthier 901 initiative. This initiative is designed to kickstart your journey toward becoming the best version of yourself.
At Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare, we believe in making this journey both enjoyable and sustainable. We encourage not just individuals, but the whole family, to come together and prioritize their health during this season and beyond. The aim is to create a holistic and fun approach to health that can be maintained throughout the year.
Here are seven tips to help you “fall” in love with a healthier lifestyle and make this season your best one yet:
- Spend Time in Nature: The changing leaves provide a beautiful backdrop. Take a leisurely walk and soak in the vibrant foliage while getting some exercise in the process. Nature’s beauty can be a motivating workout companion.
2. Picnic in the Park: Pack a healthy picnic and head to your favorite park. Enjoy the crisp autumn air, savor delicious and nutritious food, and create cherished memories with loved ones. It’s a perfect blend of fitness and fun.
3. Take Advantage of Cooler Weather: Use the milder fall weather as an opportunity to engage in outdoor activities like cycling, hiking, running, or even a friendly game of flag football with friends. Embrace the comfortable climate and get moving.
4. Get the Entire Family Involved: Make health a family affair. Exercise together, cook nutritious meals as a group, and celebrate the progress you make as a family. It’s not just about personal wellness; it’s about family well-being.
5. Experiment with New Recipes: Explore fall-inspired recipes that feature seasonal ingredients. Soups, stews, and heart-healthy salads can be both delicious and nutritious. You can access recipes of the week by downloading the Healthier 901 app.
6. Get Creative with Workouts: During the cooler months, diversify your indoor workouts. Try activities like dance classes, yoga, or indoor rock climbing to keep your fitness routine fresh and exciting. Keep the motivation high by trying new things.
7. Join Healthier 901: Kickstart your wellness journey by becoming a part of Healthier 901 and downloading the app to track your progress. This community-wide initiative is designed to help you transform your life for the better. The app equips you with tools, resources, and a supportive community to make lasting changes, with the goal of reducing the risk of health issues such as heart attacks and cancer, ultimately saving lives.
“Lean into this season of change and improve your wellbeing with healthy food choices, walking outside and being present with our mental needs.
