"Take care of yourself," tends to be something we toss out nonchalantly to one another. But what if we told you your life could depend on that seemingly simple phrase.
It's true. How we treat our bodies (and what we do or do not put into them) has far-reaching effects on our long term physical and mental health, and even how well we're able to ward off diseases/viruses (yep, like COVID-19).
Those interconnections were a running theme throughout our Be Healthy QC Coalition's special seminar (earlier this month), where state presenters and local panelists discussed policies, programs, and ways we could all collaborate when it comes to Eating Right and Moving More-- foundational elements to all our health.
So, especially during this "season of love" we encourage you to make sure you're loving yourself. Do some assessment of where you're shining and where there's opportunity for growth (or help), and take care. Really.
