Hughston Health

There is no doubt that daily lifestyle practices have a profound impact on health and quality of life. High levels of stress, excessive body weight, and health risk factors such as smoking and poor diet are associated with lowered productivity, greater absenteeism and increased health care costs, not to mention shortened lifespan.

 

Research shows that people who participate in physical activities on a regular basis are stronger, more flexible and have more stamina than people who don’t. In addition, physical fitness promotes mental alertness and the ability to concentrate and helps manage stress in appropriate ways.
