Healthy Living

To help you live longer and healthier, we encourage you to follow these nine Healthy Living Messages:

Be Involved in Your Health Care. There are many ways to take an active role. Work with your health care team to improve your health. Check out My HealtheVet.

Be Tobacco Free. Don’t use tobacco in any form. If you are using tobacco, the VA can help you quit. Avoid second hand smoke. Please contact our Smoking Cessation Program at (909) 825-7084 ext. 1869 or Quit Tobacco. (video*)

Eat Wisely. Eat a variety of foods including vegetables, fruits and whole grains. It is important to include fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products in your diet, and limit total salt, fat, sugar, and alcohol. Check out the MOVE! program for more tips. (video*)

Be Physically Active. Avoid inactivity. Some activity is better than none. Aim for at least 2½ hours of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week. Every 10 minute session counts. Check out the MOVE! program for more tips. (video*)

Strive for a Healthy Weight. If you need to lose weight, losing even a little will help. If you are of normal weight, maintain it. Staying in control of your weight helps you be healthy now and in the future. Check out the MOVE! program for more tips. (video*)

Limit Alcohol. If you choose to drink alcohol, drink in moderation. If you are concerned about your drinking, talk to your primary care doctor or module care manager for available services. (video*)

Get Recommended Screenings and Immunizations. Find out which vaccines, screening tests and preventive medications are right for you!

Manage Stress. Pay attention to stress. Tools are available to help you manage and reduce your stress. Talk with your primary care doctor or care manager about how you can participate in biofeedback classes at this medical center. (video*)

Be Safe: Think Ahead. There are actions you can take to protect yourself and those you love from harm. Common safety issues are sexually transmitted infections, falls, and motor vehicle collisions.
