We know it’s hard to balance a busy lifestyle with a healthy lifestyle. These quick tips can help you reach your health goals:
Talk to your primary care provider.
He or she can help you make the right choices for you and your health. This is especially important if you’re going through treatment or have a long-term condition. You want to make sure your daily decisions will improve your health, not hurt it.
Get your preventive care done on time.
Try having a “preventive health month.” Plan your yearly physical and tests to help keep you well, such as mammograms or blood tests, in the same month. That way, it’s easier to remember.
Find a health education class.
