To live well, it is best to stay healthy. That is not always easy. We do not have complete control over our health. And some people get medical care more easily than others. But there are things we can do for ourselves and for those around us to help prevent problems.
We can stay active and move more. We can watch what we eat and drink. And we can stay away from bad habits like using tobacco. It is also good to see a doctor at least once a year for a check-up and to have tests done that can find problems early.
When problems come up, your doctor and other health providers can help guide you on what to do. It is best when you work together as a team.
It is also good for you to learn about health threats like diabetes, heart problems, cancer, mental health, and stroke. The more you learn, the more power you have to help yourself and the people you love.
