Making Healthy Living Changes in the New Year

Healthy Living Program Logo.jpg

 As we begin a new year, my motto will be this: Out with the old, in with the new. To me this means that I will think about every action and say “Is this right for me or could I be doing something different?” In health it means the same thing. So Guthrie businesses, in 2017 I encourage you to:

· Become a tobacco free worksite- not only does this create a healthier    environment, it also saves time on picking up all the tobacco litter outside.

· Make healthier choices more readily available.

·  Get up and get moving. Encourage employees to be active and support  them in those efforts.

· Rethink your Drink

Kudos to the 2017 Certified Healthy Oklahoma organizations that are being recognized for promoting health and wellness in Logan County where residents live, work, learn, and play. Congrats on setting positive examples and shaping brighter futures for Oklahomans.
