Guess what? The correct answer to every question is A, B, and C!!! According to a movement called “Stealth Health” sneaking healthy habits into our lives is easier than we might think!
David Katz, director of Yale University’s Prevention Research Center, says doing something – no matter how small – is infinitely better than doing nothing. He also says there are at least 2400 ways to sneak healthy activities into daily living. Katz says, ” If you let yourself make small changes, they will add up to meaningful changes in the quality of your diet, your physical activity pattern, your capacity to deal with stress, and in your sleep quality — and those 4 things compromise an enormously powerful health promotion that can change your life.”
