The steps that build a foundation of good health are the same for everyone:
- Visit a health care provider for a well-woman visit (checkup), preventive screenings, and vaccines.
- Get active.
- Eat healthy.
- Pay attention to mental health, including getting enough sleep and managing stress.
- Practice safe behaviors, such as quitting smoking, not texting while driving, and taking steps to protect yourself from sexually transmitted infections.
But health isn’t one-size-fits-all. We’re all unique! We all have our own reasons for wanting to be healthy and ways of going about it. It can be hard to take steps for good health. But discovering what works best for you can help you build healthy habits — habits you’ll be more likely to stick to for a healthier, happier you.
