Q: Is there a driving force behind your healthy lifestyle? Was it a person in your life, a certain event, were you brought up in a healthy environment? What makes you a healthy individual? A: Ultimately, I want to be healthy for my family. I have two young children, and keeping up with them requires energy and health! I also want to set a good example for my kids that being healthy is important. Q: How would you encourage another person to pursue a healthy lifestyle? A: Mostly I try to talk about the benefits I receive from eating well, getting physical activity and trying to keep stress in check. Sometimes it's as easy as inviting them to take a walk, sharing a healthy new recipe, or talking about the fun I had participating in a particular activity. Q: What activities do you engage in to reduce stress? A: Read, hit the treadmill or the track, play games with my family, making mental lists and setting goals.
