Healthy living isn’t one size fits all. It’s not just about what size pants you wear or always choosing a banana over a chocolate bar.
It’s about taking care of your whole self — learning to relax, getting annual checkups and knowing where the food you put in your body comes from.
And, if we’re honest, it’s something we all need to work at.
This issue of Smart takes a look at all the facets of healthy living.
Sometimes, it’s about taking the first step, like Sarah Rentzel Jones, whose story is featured on page 10. She started running last April in memory of her father and completed her first half-marathon in the fall.
Jones and other athletes — seasoned or new to the game — need the right gear to stay fit. We highlight some of our favorite athletic wear and exercise equipment in bright colors and fun fabrics from local retailers on pages 7 and 24.
Parents hope their kids will pick up on their good habits, but getting your child to eat his broccoli isn’t always easy. Get tips from local experts on raising healthy eaters on page 38. And if your children need a little inspiration to put down the video game controller, find ways to exercise as a family on page 28.
