School is back in session and fall is upon us. It seems that this time of year can be busy for everyone, even those of us who are no longer beholden to a school schedule. When things get busy, it’s important to take a moment to consider your health and that of your family. It’s easy to neglect your nutrition or forget to exercise when so many things are competing for your time. However, when you do make your health a priority, you will find that you have more energy to contribute to all the other tasks on your plate.
This month’s issue of LIFT will give you resources to help with both physical and mental health. You will also see a story of resilience and learn about some ways Owensboro Health is working toward bettering our communities. We hope that the resources contained in these pages will set you on a path toward good health that you will be able to maintain throughout your lifetime.
