Healthy Eating and Active Living All Year Round
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can be a challenge, particularly in December. Cold weather and early darkness make outdoor exercise less inviting. For many of us, December is also full of holiday festivities where delicious but often unhealthy food is the focal point of the celebration. Achieving balance when it comes to nutritious eating and physical activity is a lifelong journey- but one that many of us have embarked on. If you are struggling to stay healthy this month, remember that there are a wealth of resources to support you- in December and all year long.
