  1. Amy Kat says

    The best healthy living tip I know is to keep moving – you don’t have to exercise for 30 minutes straight if you don’t have time, as long as you move all day. Take the stairs, walk from the end of the parking lot, chase the kids – it all adds up!

  2. tanyab79 says

    Eat lots of veggies and drink lost of water and always check your nutritional information before buying products.

  3. Lauren S. says

    It sounds too simple, but drinking lots of water is SO key! I gave up soda and now I only drink water and tea, and my digestion and skin are so, so much better now because of this simple change!

  4. Liberty Thompson says

    I can’t rave enough about drinking the right amount of water for your body weight. The positive affects is has on your your body are endless!

  5. Lorina Padgett says

    Keep medical appointments, take medication as prescribed, get annual pap smear and Mammogram, if applicable. Talk to Doctor about all issues and don’t allow them to brush you off.

  6. Bonnie Cantrell says

    Considering I’m not exactly the healthiest living person its difficult for me to give any tips. I’m trying to change that though.

    Avoid foods with highly processed ingredient. Eat organic when possible. Apple Cider Vinegar and Coconut oil are remedies for tons of things! Don’t use harsh chemicals to clean when vinegar and orange rinds can do the trick!

  7. Stacey P says

    I start off my day with hot water & lemon. There are so many benefits but mostly it helps to start my day hydrated.

  8. says

    My doctor recommended steel-cut oatmeal because it has more fiber and protein than the more-processed oatmeal. It is REALLY good, and doesn’t take too long to fix – about 10 minutes altogether!

  9. says

    My best fitness and health tip that I actually won a Gift Card from Push Pedal Pull was “Set a time every night that you are going to do at least 10 minutes of exercise (mine is 7pm) and do it, no excuses. Just Do It!” you can spare at least 10 minutes. I usually do 30 minutes.

  10. Samantha says

    My healthy living tip is to take each day as a new day, don’t hold onto what you didn’t get done yesterday, don’t stress…enjoy life and live.

  11. Kristie D. says

    My favorite healthy living tip is to exercise a little each day. I really need to get back in shape. And don’t even buy the unhealthy food. I can’t drive so if I don’t buy it, it’s harder to obtain it. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com Thank you.

  12. Diana Ward says

    Water, fresh and varied food, fish oil and other supplements, exercise, etc. of course. And first and foremost — have an active and enjoyable life: be with people who make you happy, have a reason to get up in the morning and do things that make you feel valued and fulfilled.

  13. Heather Comer says

    Drink lots of water (and not so many sugar-filled, caffienated drinks)! i feel so much better when I’m well hydrated!

  14. Pauline Milner says

    It is important that you eat healthy and establish a regular exercise programs. Those two things will take huge steps toward making sure you remain healthy and, when you do get sick, that you are able to fight the illness with minimal medication. Thank you for another super giveaway opportunity. Keep up the terrific blogging.

  15. Jamie S. says

    My favorite tip is to not eat processed foods. Whole foods are always the best and the recipes to be found online these days are fabulous!

  16. Starla Bates says

    I think balance is key. Key to everything, basically-especially with your health. Of course eat healthy,exercise and eat what you want in moderation :)

  17. rayraycartucci says

    I use honey instead of sugar to stay healthy! Lots of fruit and veggies and water….really does the trick. I lost 100 pounds last year. :)

  18. Trisha W. says

    Too busy for exercise? Park your car far from the door but near a cart return if you have kids so that you can get errand exercise.

  19. Trish says

    What I try to do to stay healthy is just make healthy eating choices (like using ground turkey rather than ground beef for burgers, lots of fruits and veggies, etc.) and to keep moving! I used to just sit the majority of my day, and I now try to keep moving and cleaning and not sit as much!

  20. melissa cushing says

    I have been trying to eat more salads, raw fruits and veggies… and drink LOTS of water!!! Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!!

  21. beth c says

    green smoothies! i would love to have one every morning.. just throw fruits and a handful or two of greens in your blender with a bit of water & voila! a great, energizing way to start your day! one of my faves has banana, apple, berries & chard!

  22. lissa crane says

    I drink tons of water and try to only eat whole foods, nothing processed! It’s hard to do, but worth the results!

  23. Daraya says

    While exercise is a big part of staying fit, eating the right foods is too! And making sure that you are eating the right proportions is always a must to stay fit! :)

  24. says

    Garden! Good excercize, fresh food! And don’t forget that a lot of weeds are edible and good for you too…like dandelions, and clover (in moderation)! So skip the weed killer on your back yard and pull those puppies up and into a salad.

  25. Keara B. says

    One of the best things I learned is to shop outside the aisles of the grocery store. If you stick to the outer walls, that’s where you find the freshest, healthiest, and least-processed food!

  26. says

    I have to agree with drinking lots of water, cutting out soda (hard, I know)…I haven’t been able to give it up completely myself, but only have them occasionally now…what a difference!

  27. Aimee T says

    Grow/raise your own food. It’s exercise, you know EXACTLY what went into/on your food, it’s better for the environment and you will be healthier doing it!

  28. Gale McCarron says

    Since I have to deal with some physical limitations, I’ve turned more to my mental well being to stay healthy. Besides meditation, I work each day at staying in a positive frame of mind by being grateful for all that’s around me. I’ve learned so much about life by being still and watching the magic.

  29. Jodi Fridson says

    To stay active, drink plenty of water, eat healthy, think happy thoughts & remember to smile! A smile goes along way & becomes contagious.

  30. Kortney Picker says

    my best healthy living tip would be, if you don’t buy it (and bring it into your house) you won’t eat it! If we don’t have soda, chips, candy etc. we don’t eat it. Also eat before you go to the grocery store so you don’t impulse buy unhealthy products!

  31. Jennifer Johansen says

    I like to start every day with meditation, lots of water, and greek yogurt. I also consume a lot of xylitol for dental health.

  32. Patricia Dugan says

    My best healthy living tips – at least what I do – is to cut in half portions of “fattening” foods. I don’t eliminate anything, but I’m careful with portion control. Fill in the gap with veggies and fruit. Drink plenty of water, especially before and during meals.

  33. heather r says

    wherever I’m walking, even if it’s just from the car to the house, I walk like I’ve got somewhere to be. part of it is that I feel like it gives me a bit more exercise, part of it is that I’m impatient! I go nuts when I get trapped behind people at the store who walk like they’re on their way to the electric chair lol

  34. cheryla lister says

    “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise,” along with plenty of fruits and veggies and lots of activity.

  35. Stephanie says

    My healthy living tip -exercise in the morning. It’s a great way to start your day and there are no excuses, like there are later.

  36. G says

    My best healthy living tip is water…..drink lots of water. Personally, water is just about all I drink, it’s atleast 90% of all I drink….I drink well over the recommended eight glasses a day! probably close to double that…no sodas at all…. I think drinking more water is probably one of the simplest things someone can do to be more healthy….

  37. Ashley Trail says

    Portion control, drinking lots of water and eating more fruits and veggies at every meal is very important.

  38. samantha Kalmar says

    It’s the little things, walk the extra distance to the store, make an extra trip to the car, drink a water instead of pop, eat one healthy snack a day instead of a candy bar

  39. Jhanelle says

    My tip is to keep active as much as possible and to eat at least one healthy meal per day chocked full of fresh fruits and/or veggies.

  40. Michele Rodocker says

    Drink a fruit and veggie smoothie to bulk up on those nutrients, have a natural energy boost, and not get bored with salads.

  41. Cori says

    Best tip I can think of- live in the moment. Treat yourself with kindness. Listen to your body’s needs. If you do this, everything else should fall into place.

  42. terra says

    drink lots of water or green tea. eat fresh foods with less preservatives. and do some kind of movement every day. do 3 squats before sitting down, do walking lunges into the other room, etc.

  43. april says

    Best tip is to shop the perimeter of the grocery store, stay away from all of the pre-packaged stuff in the middle isles.

  44. Ioana Hampton says

    For me, its all about creating the right balance. Eating consciously and living a happy and active lifestyle when possible but also splurging once in a while. Life is too short to count calories. :)

  45. Cindy Merrill says

    a good tonic to ward off colds: Boil 1 cup of fresh pine needle tips in two cups water briskly for 5 minutes, strain and add one spoonful of honey to the Tea water. This brew kept folks alive during WW1 & WW11 in northern Europe.

  46. melisa says

    When you finish fixing your plate, put just a little bit back of each entree, don’t eat after 6pm, try to use the stairs in place of elevators, drink lots and lots of water

  47. Gayle S says

    One of the healthiest things we can do for ourselves is to drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of fluid a day. If you remember that water makes up about 60 percent of your body weight it is easy to understand the importance of it.

  48. Kate J says

    I take the stairs, park farther at stores, staying active, drinking plenty of fluids, and fitting in my fruits and vegetables

  49. Denise Elliott says

    Take care of yourself first,. you have to put yourself first you can not take care of others if you don’t take care of yourself.

  50. Jennifer P - Vicki Furrin on Rafflecopter says

    Limit your salt and sugar intake – read labels because a lot of foods have salt/sugar that one wouldn’t expect to. – and drink lots of water.

  51. Sarah Elyce says

    I drink water with lemon all day long. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables and the least amount of processing to them.

  52. Julia says

    I write on the calendar when I go to the gym. It keeps me motivated to keep going back. At the end of the week it makes me feel better that I have gone.

  53. Jacinda Dady says

    Every time you take the stairs, do them twice. Small thing that makes a big difference! Thanks for the sweepstakes opportunity.

  54. j gentry says

    My best healthy living tip is to do the best that you can, every day. Drink plenty of water, incorporate some form of exercise into your day and try to cut back on the sugars. We can’t be perfect, but celebrate the positives and learn from the negatives.

  55. Hallie R. says

    Everyone’s been saying it already but it’s true! Staying hydrated is the best thing you can do to feel healthy!

  56. Ruqayyah says

    Avoid fluoride by making ur own toothpaste (or buying fluoride free versions), using reverse osmosis water for drinking & cooking.

  57. Trista Wilson says

    As a family we eat only 1 meat meal a week, the rest are vegetarian and most of what we eat we try to get from our garden. It has made a huge change for our family health wise. :)

  58. kelly mcgrew says

    eat breakfast! no matter if you don’t like the breakfast foods out on the market or anything, eat something you enjoy (and your body can tolerate) early in the morning to begin the day.

  59. latoya says

    Lots of fruits and veggies, I love to get my fruits by making my own smoothies with almond milk and whatever fruits and veggies are on sale at the store.

  60. says

    Discover your “why” for wanting to live a healthy lifestyle. If you know WHY you want to eat healthy, you’ve made a specific connection and you’re more likely to stick with it. Thank you for the opportunity!

  61. Casey says

    I personally believe that a plant based diet is the best way to live healthy. Also add in some exercise…. It makes you feel really good too! You don’t have to be believe in the morals of veganism to eat like one.

  62. Jenny Q. says

    I try to make exercise part of the family activities (hinking, walking, swimming,tennis). And eating a healthy diet.

  63. Jennifer says

    If you feel like snacking, first drink some water and see if you’re still hungry. Sometimes you’re just thirsty, not hungry!

  64. Sandy Cain says

    My best tip: Stay OUT of the sun! Get your needed Vitamin D from supplements and food. I had skin cancer already (from sun exposure) right in the middle of my face. It left an ugly scar and the experience was NOT fun. Ladies, PLEASE – do not try to “tan”! Not only does it give you wrinkles and age spots, but cancer, too!!!!!

  65. Christy Peeples DuBois says

    I keep in mind always to strive for 10,000 steps daily especially on the days that I’m not able to walk the five miles I normally walk. I do things like NOT looking for the closest parking spot and taking the stairs instead of the elevator.

  66. Jill Myrick says

    I make sure to get at least an hour of strenuous exercise per day. And drink at least eight glasses of water per day.


  67. Terri Moore says

    My best healthy living tip is to drink lots of fresh water, I never leave the house without a water bottle.

  68. Chelsea B. says

    Stop eating when you get full! I know, it seems simple. But you have no idea how many times I’ve seen (and done) people stuff their stomachs so they don’t waste food.

  69. Elizabeth says

    Eat more vegetables. Super simple, fits with every diet plan or fad diet out there, absolutely guaranteed to make you healthier. Easier said than done, but SO simple in theory! 😉

  70. Jennifer Hiles says

    Drink lots and lots of water. That is one I’m working on right now. It was actually my resolution this year since I’m so bag at it!

  71. says

    My best (and easiest) tip is to drink lots of water, but I see lots of others already said that… so how about, trying to get enough sleep every night! (Easier said than done when you have little ones, though!)

  72. Laura says

    Enjoy what you like to eat in moderation and walk when you can, take the stairs instead of the elevator. Eating balanced and getting even a little exercise will go a long way and is easier to maintain.

  73. Judy Gregory says

    Stress and guilt will kill you quicker than a cheeseburger. Try to do right, but forgive and forget when you slip up. Would you rather live to 80 and be happy or live to a hundred and be miserable. Enjoy your life.

  74. Kali says

    I love salads but often find myself reaching for something less healthy because I don’t want to take the time to clean and chop everything. I recently started preparing a ton of salad and saving it in pint sized mason jars. It lasts at least a week, and all I have to do is grab it out of the refrigerator and add dressing.

  75. Dawn Monzu says

    I know it is kind of obvious, but drinking water is amazing! It changes everything. Our poor bodies crave it, and most of us don’t give it half of what it needs. So drink that water!!!!

  76. Wanda Tracey says

    I have cut back on sugar and I have become more conscious of how much sugar is in almost everything.Therefore to counter balance I regularly exercise on a daily basis.
