Healthy Living Pledge

While you’re here, we also encourage you to be a champion of your own health and take the healthy living pledge. Taking the pledge is easy. All you need to do is commit to improving or maintaining a healthy lifestyle by:

  • Being active - You don’t need to be an athlete to get moving.
    • You can pledge to go for a walk after dinner, working out on your lunch break or trying a new sport or activity
  • Eating healthy - Fuel your body and mind, on and off the field.
    • You can pledge to eat dinner as a family four nights this week, or eat a cup of leafy greens at lunch every day
  • Minding your mental health - Get your head in the game.
    • You can pledge to meet a new neighbor, volunteer, or reach out for help if you need someone to talk to
  • Protecting your health - Gear up, it’s game time.
    • Pledge to always wear a helmet while sledding, walk like a penguin to avoid slips and falls on the ice, or get immunized against influenza

Share your pledge on social media to inspire others, using the hashtags #AHSFitFam #CWG2019. Everyone who makes a pledge will be entered for a chance to win prizes from AHS and our community wellness partners.
