A healthy lifestyle is more than just exercise and good nutrition. I think it’s being involved and helping other people. My parents are always doing things for other people, and they always stress teamwork – and that has helped me a great deal. Taking time out of your day for someone else is humbling. Also, I love my family more than anything. They keep me healthy and grounded when all else fails. My family, friends, faith, and community are my healthy lifestyle.
