|We’re now going to design a plan that might help you live longer with optimal health and wellbeing, based on current scientific research, observation, and experience.
The new Habits of Health Transformational System provides steps from Dr. Wayne Scott Andersen, Co-founder & Independent OPTAVIA Coach, to follow to reach longevity; including a number of basic actions and behaviors that will reduce your likelihood of falling prey to preventable diseases, accidents, and an unhealthy lifestyle:
- Create a Healthy Environment. Eliminate unhealthy food, drink clean water, ensure smoke detectors are working, and lock all the doors in your home.
- Get a Yearly Checkup. If you didn’t see your healthcare provider before you began your weight-loss journey, do so now! Make sure you continue to get checkups at least once a year to ensure you are staying healthy.
- Go to Your Dentist. It may surprise you to know that dental care is critical for optimal health. Schedule an appointment at least once a year to ensure your oral health is intact.
- Reach and Maintain Your Healthy Weight. Reaching a healthy weight not only may lower your risk for disease but may also lengthen your lifespan*
- Incorporate the Habits of Health. From learning to eat right, incorporating movement into your daily routine, and making sleep a priority, the Habits of Health will take you on a complete journey.
- Obtain Optimal Health. No matter what your age is, optimizing your health is a fundamental principle of living longer.
*No one can predict how long we are going to live, but research suggests that making an overall lifestyle change by taking an active role in your choices and behavior, including losing weight, eating healthier, moving more, and reducing stress, has the potential to help you live a longer, healthier life
