‘Tis the season for family, friends, traditions, and …. food! You’ve likely been invited to more than a few holiday parties and are looking forward to these festive events. To stay focused on healthy living throughout the season, it may help to have a strategy in mind as you celebrate.
In the height of the holidays, it can be challenging to reach your regular heights in fitness. But to relieve stress and stay healthy, it’s important to keep exercise in your routine.
It’s such an important issue that it’s featured in two awareness initiatives. November is both American Diabetes Month and National Diabetes Awareness Month. With this increased attention on diabetes and prevention, it’s a great time to learn more, assess your risk, and see how the right diet can help you stay healthy.
November is Diabetes Awareness Month, so it’s the perfect time to address the importance of fitness not only for overall health, but for preventing Type II Diabetes. Are you exercising as much as you’d like, or as much as you should to stay healthy and fight disease? If not, the YMCA can help.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It’s the ideal time to learn more about cancer and understand the crucial role nutrition has in cancer prevention.
