Tips to Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
Ok so here is how I have been able to have a healthier lifestyle and stick to it:
- Don’t diet: I don’t diet. I make intelligent ingredient and meal choices with health in mind. For example, I have switched honey for sugar.
- Exercise regularly. I used to be a weekend warrior. While this kept me fit, it was not the healthiest option for me. Instead, now I exercise for at least 20 minutes everyday.
- Take full advantage of your health plan: This might come as a surprise to you, but think about it. You are already paying for it, why not benefit your health further with it?
I must confess in the past I would not visit a health professional unless I was utterly sick out of ignorance. I was so bad, I even skipped it all and went directly to the ER for medical help. There really is no need for that. There are far easier ways offered by our plans. But I am being honest, I was intimidated by the lingo and never bothered. Silly, I now know since it can be so easy to understand when you have a great guide to support you. Knowledge is power and key to keep me and my family healthy, and small steps put us all in the right direction. So let’s plunge into it. Guess what? there is a simple and fun way to get this done. By answering a simple and quick quiz on United Healthcare’s website, I clearly understood everything related to managing healthcare costs.
I know, I know, as parents we lead extremely busy lives and sometimes we need 48 hours in a day. This quiz didn’t take me more than 5 minutes to answers, and the takeaway is invaluable in taking full advantage of what we already pay for. Honestly, I had fun answering the quiz questions and looked forward to verifying my answers. I was pumped and armed with valuable information, so I jumped at the next fun opportunity to learn more. Yes, I played a concentration game to help me further understand the UnitedHealthcare tools. Need a little incentive?
