While most of us have a good idea of what’s happening in our lives, we may not pay as close attention to what we need to be doing to keep our bodies healthy and fit.

The chart below is an easy way to keep track of the steps you should take to ensure a lifetime of good health.

The most important things we can do to stay healthy are:

  • Don’t smoke cigarettes, e-cigarettes or vape, or use nicotine or tobacco*
  • Be physically active
  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Stay at a healthy weight
  • Drink alcohol only in moderation
  • Follow what your healthcare provider recommends, including taking medication and lifestyle modification
