Once you have been living a healthy lifestyle, you feel better, sleep better, think better, and look better. But what is a healthy lifestyle? In general a healthy person does not smoke, is at a healthy weight, eats healthy and exercises. If you are new to learning how to live a healthy lifestyle, you have a lot of old habits to break. Let CHEER help you to reinvent yourself through exercise, diet, travel, entertainment, family traditions, expanded websites and much more.
Sometimes the trick to healthy living is making small changes a little at a time; adding fruit to your cereal, having an extra glass of water, cut one or two unhealthy things from your diet, or add some bi-weekly exercise to your routine. Strenuous exercise does not mean a healthy lifestyle. Movement is movement and the more you do, the healthier you will be. If you want more information on leading a healthy lifestyle, attend one of the many CHEER sponsored classes at your local CHEER Activity Center such as Tia Chi, Zumba, Yoga, retro fitness, walking, line dancing and many others.
Living a healthy life also means managing chronic illness and pain that comes with normal aging. CHEER offers a host of workshops such as Living with Diabetes, managing high and low Blood Sugar, Walking with Ease, Living with Arthritis, Nutrition and Healthy Aging, Stress Management and Relaxation Techniques, Self Management Programs for Chronic Diseases, Brain Fitness, low fat Cooking, the Savvy Caregiver course, and My Plate training. Most of these programs are offered at any of our eight Activity Centers strategically located throughout Sussex County.
There are support groups available for caregivers and individuals who like a group setting. Support groups include but are not limited to Stroke, Heart Disease, Alzheimer, Dementia, Parkinson Disease, fibromyalgia, depression, and weight loss.
