2. Check it out

Preventive check-ups are a critical component of good health. You can get a preventive dental, vision, hearing, medical, chiropractic or any well-check exam.

3. Track your intake

Eating a balanced diet is an essential part of good health. Join the JCCC Engagement CREW in September for one full week of nutrition tracking to raise awareness of the nutritional value of the food you eat. Use any tracking mechanism that’s convenient for you. Check out MyFitness Pal if you need a starting point.

4. Walk and talk

Schedule a walking meeting instead of meeting in an office, boardroom or coffee shop. Movement yields circulation; circulation creates energy. Rather than reach for the candy bowl to get a boost of energy, take a walk outside.
