Healthy living means different things to nearly everyone.

There’s no right or wrong way to define healthy living, but I take this from Livestrong.com.

A healthy lifestyle leaves you fit, energetic and at reduced risk for disease, based on the choices you make about your daily habits. Good nutrition, daily exercise and adequate sleep are the foundations for continuing good health. Managing stress in positive ways, instead of through smoking or drinking alcohol, reduces wear and tear on your body at the hormonal level. For a longer and more comfortable life, put together your plan for a health lifestyle and live up to it.

If you are reading this section of Women Offshore, then most of that quote should ring true to you.  It does to me, and I prioritize health and wellness in my life.

But, how do we manage living that healthy lifestyle in an environment that seems bent on making us unhealthy?  It all comes down to choices.  For the next couple of posts, I’d like to further address different aspects of healthy living, and ways to achieve it even when the odds are against you.  Stay tuned!
