Back to School Healthy Steps

It’s a new school year!  Right now is a great time to get a fresh start both academically and physically.  Why not take this time to start off this year on the right foot.  This year, take time every day to make sure you are taking a healthy step.  Here are some ideas to get you started:
1.        Walk to school.
2.       Pack a healthy lunch (watch out for sugary sodas and fruit juices!)
3.       Take an hour of exercise after school.  This is a great way to decompress from your day.
4.       Be sure to eat breakfast.  This will keep you energized and focused all day long.
5.       Try out for a new sport.  Try something new!  You’ll meet new people and you might find your new passion.
6.       Sleep!  A full night’s sleep will allow you to stay more focused in class and will give you the energy to be more active all day long.
7.       Eat dinner with the family. Not only will you get a healthy meal you can spend some time with the people who love you the most.
