Move your body
Moving your body has so many physical health benefits, as well as mental.

Each day incorporate a little bit more into your daily fitness routine and notice how good you feel!
Eat a wide variety of fruits and vegetables
As stated in many of our previous posts it is so important to incorporate a wide variety of fruits and vegetables into our daily diet. Vegetables can help lower cholesterol in our body, which can help reduce heart disease.
