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
