How to be Healthy

by Annabella Friedrich, 4th Grade

Riverbend Elementary

Do you know how to keep a healthy life? I do and I know its all about decisions. Decisions on exercise, moderation and even being organized.

One important thing to be healthy is exercise. Having fun is just like exercise. One way to have fun exercising is playing out side or walking to the park. Theres also computer program called go noodle it has exercise videos and more.

Another thing about how to keep a healthy life is moderation. Moderation means only a little bit of something like food. Only a little bit of ice cream, chocolate, sugar free gum, candy and sweets.

One more thing about being Healthy is being organized. One way to be organized is righting down everything you eat or every time you watch TV.

Take my advice if you want to live a long and strong life you should exercise, moderate your self, and be organized.

Congratulations, Annabella! For your great work, you will be treated to a week at the Jordan Kent Skills Camp for you and a friend. Way to go, and keep living your healthy life!
