When it comes to health and nutrition, the first lady seems to have a good head on her shoulders.
On a recent trip to the Health and Human Services Department, she stressed that even small changes in diet and exercise can have a big impact. Got that? “Not totally evaporating your way of being as you know it today.”
“Imagine what we’ll be facing in 20 or 30 years,” she continued, “if we don’t get on this issue. None of us wants a future like that for our children.”
I really think that’s an important message to put out there, especially now, when stress levels are high and health—especially diet and exercise—is one of the first things to fall by the wayside.
Putting an emphasis on the need for that healthy balance in your life is something I wish we saw more of—why can’t our country make a bigger deal out of the fact that preventative care can help you in the long run?
