Move for a Healthier Life

Move a Little, Lose a Lot

Discover how to live a longer and healthier life!

As a 40-something librarian who had a great-grandmother live to be 106 years old, I have wondered if there were steps I could take to make all my years healthy ones. I have read several books that explained how important it is to move. The authors take a sensible approach. We will not live forever, but by moving and taking other simple steps, we can live healthier, longer lives. Join me in moving! If you have any concerns about starting an exercise program, please consult with your healthcare provider first.
