    Healthy Habits

    Physical fitness is a very important aspect of a persons life. Staying fit and healthy will not only make you feel better about yourself, but it will help you out in the long run. It prevents getting serious diseases and health issues such as, type two diabetes and obesity. Exercising doesn't always have to be boring or hard. You can always just go for a bike ride, a walk, roller skating, or play your favorite sports for about thirty minutes to an hour per day and that will do it! Being physically fit also means eating healthier. Sometimes it's better to choose the apple rather than the candy bar. When you decide to change your eating and exercising habits you change as an individual. You start feeling more confident, become more outgoing, and your surrounded by more positive vibes.  Being healthy leads to stronger bones, healthier heart and a happier you.
