From The Philly Voice:
When it comes to your health, it’s hard to focus on anything outside of the most dominant health event in our lifetime. COVID-19 is responsible for more than 800,000 deaths, suffering and an enormous disruption to our lives. Even the vaccines have been a trigger for debate. And, with the entry of the omicron variant, it is difficult to know where we’ll be this time next year. With all this uncertainty, what remains constant is the value proposition of a healthy lifestyle. It can go a long way to stemming the impact of COVID-19 and, more generally, the onslaught of disease as we age. Healthy routines can make a huge contribution to our physical and mental well-being, and spur happiness. They’re an antidote to the chaos of COVID-19 and a source of resiliency during these difficult times. If there were ever a time to start living healthy, it’s now.
