10-10-10: A Perfect Day to Choose Healthy Living

October 9th, 2010 · No Comments

If you were an Olympic gymnast, October 10, 2010 would be a perfect day for you – a day that is a perfect “10” (10-10-10). As luck would have it, October 10, 2010 is also a perfect day for people living in the Rochester area to take steps toward a healthier life, if those involved with Healthy Living Rochester (formerly known as CardioVision 2020) have anything to say about it.

Starting on October 10, 2010, everyone in the Rochester area has been given the good luck to have a new resource for healthy living available to them, thanks to Healthy Living Rochester, a group composed of community partners interested in helping to promote healthy living in our region in positive, upbeat, and effective ways.

Thanks to a grant from Stratis Health, and thanks to the cooperative efforts of CardioVision 2020, the Dan Abraham Healthy Living Center, Olmsted County Public Health Services, the Rochester Olmsted Planning, Rochester Public Works, and the MLT group, the community-wide project formerly known as CardioVision 2020 has received a facelift, an upgrade, and a new name (Healthy Living Rochester).

  • Have you wondered about what resources are available near your home to help you, your family, or your friends be more active, eat healthier, stop smoking, or lose weight?
  • Are you looking for places to exercise near your home?
  • Do you want a calendar of healthy living activities in the Rochester area this month?
  • Do you have healthy recipes that you’d like to share with your neighbors?
  • Do you want to see or submit a clever video with an upbeat message promoting healthy living (a healthy living version of YouTube)?
  • Are you looking for healthy living resources in English or other languages spoken in our region?
  • Do you have heart-related health conditions, such as high blood pressure or heart disease, and want access to resources to help you stay as healthy as possible?
  • Do you want to help address the epidemic of obesity by actively participating in community efforts to promote healthy living?

If you answered yes to any of the questions listed above then we invite you to explore the new website and use the variety of helpful, interactive, and entertaining healthy living resources that are available on the website.

Better yet, we also invite you to use the resources at www.healthylivingrochester.org to assess your current health-related lifestyle habits, and then commit to 2-3 specific goals to improve those habits in the coming weeks and months.  Remember that small daily steps can lead to big improvements in your health!

We look forward to seeing you often at our website, starting on the perfect day—10-10-10!
