John Hancock is excited to be the host sponsor of the Cooking Light & Health Fit Foodie Race Weekend. This is a great opportunity to encourage healthy living through exercise and nutrition -- while making it fun and rewarding.
Living healthy is about making small changes every day -- even the little things can make a big difference. Things like, taking more steps, adding fruit to your cereal, or having an extra glass of water. As a race participant, you've already made a healthy choice, and it doesn't have to stop there. Did you know that every one minute of exercise can add 7 minutes to your life? How many minutes will you add to your life by running this race?
Take a look at some other simple behaviors that can keep you on the road to living a longer, healthier life.
Stay active by doing ‘everyday’ activities like taking the stairs, walking the dog, or getting off a stop early on your way home.
Eat well with simple food substitutions like frozen yogurt instead of ice cream, ground turkey instead of ground beef, or brown rice instead of white rice.
Reduce your stress level. When feeling overwhelmed, simple acts like de-cluttering your space, getting a massage, or engaging in a favorite relaxation technique (to relieve tension) can help lower stress levels.
Get annual health checkups. This can be an easy thing to put off or skip all together, but is so important to living a long and healthy life. The CDC reminds us that regular physicals and blood work can detect health problems before they start.
In addition to exercising and eating right, financial fitness plays a big role in your overall well-being. And at John Hancock, we want to help you secure your financial future while also rewarding you for the steps you are taking to improve your health.
