Plan of Attack: 15 Healthy Living Habits to Start Now -photo8

8. Play
Get in the habit of playing! George Bernard Shaw once said, “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” Playing can boost your energy and improve your resistance to disease. Go biking, do a puzzle, kick around a soccer ball with your kids and watch your mood soar.

9. Move
Experts say we need at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days of the week. Whether walking or jogging, swimming or cycling, any form of physical activity will keep you healthy. Is sitting down at your office all day killing you? Try a standing desk or get up and walk around to fill up your water glass as much as you can.

10. Stock Up On In-Season Products
What’s more delicious than eating a juicy tomato in the summertime when it’s in season? It’s chock full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in comparison to those that are not in season and have been shipped from far away.  Getting into the habit of eating this way is better for the environment and cheaper, too.
