If you’ve recently decided to take better care of yourself, congratulations! You’ve made a smart decision that will carry you toward a healthier, happier future.

 

Now it’s time to make an action plan and put it to work. If you don’t know where to start, try checking your health plan for wellness programs.

 

Many health plans now offer healthy lifestyle programs you can access on your smartphone, tablet, or other devices. These tools make it easier to stick to your intentions, whether you’re at home or on the go.

 

Step 1: Choose your health goals

 

Start by getting a picture of your overall health. Some health plans offer online assessment tools, which can be a big help. By answering a series of questions, you’ll get a clear picture of your current level of health, opportunities for positive change, and suggestions for a personalized plan.

 

From there, you can decide on action steps to help yourself:

 

  • Feel your very best, inside and out
  • Manage current medical issues
  • Prevent future health problems

Step 2: Stay on track with useful tips

 

Of course, setting your health goals is just the beginning. Sticking with them presents a whole new challenge where good advice and encouragement are key.

 

With a mobile-friendly healthy lifestyle program, you’ve got a trusted source right at your fingertips. Your health plan’s mobile program can offer consistent advice and support to help you:

 

  • Make healthy food choices
  • Find your motivation
  • Get your daily exercise
  • Take breaks and reduce stress

Step 3: Turn new practices into healthy habits

 

As you reach your immediate health goals, you’ll develop confidence in your ability to make positive changes in your life. And the more confident you feel, the easier it will be to make new habits last. You’ll also get closer to another long-term prize: leading a healthier lifestyle in the years to come.
