Health Tip: Protecting Your Health

Ways to remain healthy

(HealthDay News) -- While getting healthy is no easy chore, neither is staying that way.

The American Academy of Family Physicians recommends:

  • Avoid smoking and using tobacco.
  • Don't have more than one daily drink if you're a woman, or no more than two daily if you're a man.
  • Follow a healthy-eating plan to protect your heart health and weight.
  • Lose any excess weight through diet and regular exercise. Aim for at least 30 minutes of exercise four-to-six days per week.
  • Get tested for sexually transmitted infections.
  • Avoid tanning booths, and wear sunscreen daily.
  • Get all recommended vaccinations, health screenings (including mammograms and Pap smears) as recommended by your doctor. Also get an annual physical.
