Small Steps to Living Healthy

From Florida Health

Small Steps to Living HealthyHealthiest Weight Florida is taking a new and creative approach to helping Floridians reach their healthy weight and live a healthy lifestyle. The program recently announced the launch of its new Small Steps to Living Healthy! campaign, which is a weekly email campaign that allows participants to sign up for weekly tips and tricks to help them reach their healthiest weight. Information is clear, concise and there to help participants take those difficult first steps to living healthy.

The program is free and participants can register or opt out at any time. Each week of the month the program will highlight a designated topic area:

  • Set Goals. At the beginning of each month, a challenge and health tip will be emailed. Examples of challenges include replacing sugar-sweetened beverages with water or taking the stairs instead of the elevator.
  • Move More. During the second week of the month, physical activity will be the highlighted. Participants will be introduced to different styles of exercise and the benefits of each, including options for persons with disabilities.
  • Be in the Know. Week three “fun fact” emails will provide facts on other aspects of healthy living related to healthy weight such as stress, depression and time use.
  • Eat Smart. The focus of this week’s email will be nutrition. Florida fruits and vegetables of the month, as well as recipes, will be offered through the Living Healthy in Florida Campaign.

Emails will continue throughout the year, but will never be sent more than once a week. Click here to sign up for Small Steps to Living Healthy.
