MHLbannersmallAs we move into a New Year, take time to gain some new information about your health

Welcome to the January My Healthy Lifestyle newsletter, the online voice of My Healthy Lifestyle, a program designed to bring good information on health and wellness to all Riverside team members. In this relatively small space we usually offer a brief description of the articles, tips and other information you'll find in your newsletter. happy-new-yearBut this being a new year we're going to take a new approach and define who the information is for:

For example, this issue of My Healthy Lifestyle is for those of us, and that would be most of us, who use the excuse of being too busy to follow some strategies, short ones in this case, for better health. It's for everyone who ever wondered what they could do about their own, or someone else's cold feet. This is also the issue for people who know that overweight and obesity have a strong impact on heart health but weren't as clear on the link between extra pounds and cancer.

In addition, the January My Healthy Lifestyle is the source for all of the Riverside team members who want to be physically active but don't want to leave the house to accomplish it on a blustery winter day. And most of all, as we note the passage of one year to the next, with its challenges, its hopes and its promises, this newsletter and the steps on the journey to a healthier lifestyle that it represents, are for you.

While some of this information is offered directly in your online newsletter, you'll also find links you can access for more details. Our hope as you receive your My Healthy Lifestyle newsletter each month is that you will not only read it but respond to it.
