What Does Healthy Mean to You?

We’ve got a program at Bryant called “Healthy U at Bryant U” and it aims to help students make healthy choices, eat right, and exercise.  I think it’s a great program that has really developed during its first year. They have integrated healthier meals into dining halls, and are sponsoring a 5k walk/run in early May.

I got to thinking yesterday what healthy meant to me, and it definitely does not mean body-building, 0% body fat, and protein shakes.  It may for some people, but not for me.  Healthy to mean means eating fruits and vegetables, moving around, regardless of whether it’s walking, running, or gardening, and having a stable social support system of friends and family.  That’s healthy to me.
