5 Things

you can do right now as part of your wellness routine

(1) Breathe, Long and Deep
Practice long, deep breaths — at home, in your car, at work or anytime. The increased oxygen and slower pace will benefit your body and your mind.

(2) Find a New Recipe
Surprise your family and your taste buds — find a new healthy recipe to make for dinner

(3) Visit Your Local Library
Plan to spend a couple of hours exploring your favorite book aisles or consider choosing a topic you’ve never read!  

(4) Walk Daily, Walk Briskly
Don sturdy shoes, grab a friend and walk, walk, walk. Spend at least 30 minutes a day walking with a jaunty stride.

(5) Schedule a Colonoscopy
If you’re 50 or older, schedule a colonoscopy as part of your wellness screenings. It could save your life.
