You Can Make A Difference - Healthy Habits

How To Choose Healthy Behaviors

LABELLE, FL. -- Each of us has a major role to play in the quality of our health. According to the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, your health outcomes are determined by the following:

10 percent medical care (which includes dental)
20 percent environment
20 percent genetic
50 percent based on healthy behaviors
Specifically, those healthy behaviors include:
Eating a healthy diet. Choose more fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains.
Exercise. You don't need to be a long distance runner to get the healthy benefits. A good walk every day will do!
Don't use tobacco. The United States has reduced tobacco use by significant proportions, but death rates from the effects of tobacco use are still too high.
Limit your alcohol intake.
Avoid substance abuse in all forms! (Don’t drink, don’t use tobacco, don’t use illegal drugs, and don’t overuse prescription drugs)
Get enough rest. Too much rest or too little rest can often indicate other issues such as depression.
Avoid risky behaviors. (Always think safety!...Wear a seatbelt, use a condom during sex, wear a helmet while riding a bike)
Decrease your stress levels. (Take your pet for a walk, read a book, relax with a friend, do something that makes you feel happy!)
Make regular visits to your healthcare provider. Sometimes they can spot health issues before they become a major problem.

    This is another scam to get the banks stolen money. The banks played with the mortgages in a massive ponzi scheme and now do not own your note. They have been falsifying assignments of mortgages and the gov. is helping them get away with it....go ahead ask your "lender" to send you all the proof that they actually aquired your mortgage then VERIFY.
