What can you do to improve the health of your family and friends?
Do you recall hearing your mother — at her wits end – telling you in her very sternest parent voice, “You’ll do it because I said you will”! Well, it turns out she was wrong. It’s far more likely, actually, that you would do what she did – not what she said. Particularly when it comes to health. In fact, new research shows that your own health behavior affects others’ behaviors.
You can determine your own “Health Footprint.”So what can you do to make sure that those you love act in the best interest of their health? You can start by assessing your own Health Footprint.
Just log onto www.empireblue.com/connects and answer a few simple questions. Then, continue acting on your best health behaviors and take small steps to improve the worst.
As you begin to increase your personal health, those around you will too.
