Making healthy lifestyle choices is easier said than done. But, if you take small steps toward improving your nutrition and becoming more physically active, losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight, quitting smoking, and managing your stress, over time you can dramatically improve your quality of life. Also, if you face a chronic illness like diabetes or heart disease, making healthier choices can prevent your illness from progressing further or minimize its symptoms.
When it comes to lifestyle choices, some people decide to make a “grand gesture,” like going vegan or training for a mini-triathlon. Others choose to make small changes that add up, like walking 30 minutes a day or substituting baked potato chips for fried. This section discusses the different things you can do—and the resources available to help you—to live a healthier life.
