What You Can Do To Get and Stay Well
Set goals, make a plan to reach them, and track how you are doing.
Whether you want to have more energy, lose weight, or be stronger, you need to set goals before you can reach them. Print and fill out our New You flyer that helps you set goals and make a plan to reach them.
Use free online tools like those found at sparkpeople.com to track what you eat and how much you exercise.
Learn as much as you can about wellness by:
- Going to free wellness-related classes at local health centers or hospitals, or those offered by community organizations.
- Reading your BMC HealthNet Plan member newsletter, or other wellness-related material offered by local health centers, hospitals, or community organizations.
- Sharing the cost of a wellness magazine, such as “Prevention”, with a family member or friend.
- Visiting this Wellness Center regularly for wellness tips and information.
Ask a friend or family member to be your wellness buddy.
Research shows that people who have a friend or family member with whom they can share nutrition, exercise, or other wellness goals are more likely to reach those goals.
Talk to your primary care provider (PCP) before you begin a new exercise and/or healthy eating (nutrition) program. He or she can help you decide what steps are best for reaching your wellness goals.
Get moving — set your wellness goals, and take steps towards reaching them!
