3 Easy Ways to Stay Healthy

1: Make Breast Self-Exam a Monthly Habit: Forty percent of diagnosed breast cancers are detected by women who feel a lump. Getting in the habit of a monthly self-exam is very important for women of all ages. While mammograms can help detect cancer before you can feel a lump, you can also be proactive by alerting your doctor if you notice any changes.

2: Get Outside and Enjoy the Season: The glorious colors of fall are all around. Before the cold winter weather strikes, take time for a daily stroll to appreciate the changing of the seasons. Along with burning calories, strengthening muscles and improving circulation, regular walking can help improve your mood, slow mental decline and even lower the risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Yet, before you reach for the candy corn or a peanut butter cup, it’s important to remember that the impact of these bite-sized treats can really add up. Just because they’re small in size doesn’t mean that they’re not loaded with calories. Avoid fall weight gain by opting for healthier options like a crisp apple or a handful of nuts.
