Small Choices for Better Health

By Donna Stark

When you hear the words "health" and "wellness," do you assume that everything they stand for is beyond your reach? Or do you think they are just words that industry leaders use to market their products? Well, truth be told, you need to pay more attention to these two words because they aren't meant to deceive and they are within reach. In fact, if you start to believe in them and take the right steps, your overall quality of life will significantly improve! But how do you do that? Well, it basically comes down to one small choice at a time. Take a look.


Eating the right foods with each meal is one of the best, and easiest, ways to improve the way your body functions. Here are some simple choices you can make that will positively impact the way you feel every day.

  • Add a cup of berries to your breakfast

  • Consume two servings of fatty fish a week
  • Replace store-bought snacks with healthier alternatives

  • Take a break to get up and move every 30 minutes or so if work or school keeps you sitting
  • Make your errands active by avoiding online shopping
  • Start your day with stretches
  • Spend time outside in the sun

Mental Health

  • Do something you love every day
  • Ditch the negative self-talk
  • Spend quality time with friends and family
  • Get your sleep
  • Declutter your home and workspace
  • Try a new activity at least once a month
  • Treat others well
