There is so much I love about fall. I love the changing colors of the leaves and the cooler temperatures. I love haunted houses and Halloween decorations. I love taking my family to fall festivities.
My favorite thing about this time of year specifically are corn mazes and pumpkin patches. We haven’t gone yet this year, but I remember last we had such a fun time going through and finding our way amidst the drying corn husks, even in the biting cold. Another thing I really love about fall is the food.
Food and exercise, that’s where Together Counts comes in.
Together Counts is a nationwide program inspiring active and healthy living. The principle behind this program is energy balance, which means balancing the calories we consume with the calories we burn. It’s all about moderation. This is a first-of-its kind coalition that brings together more than 200 retailers, food and beverage manufacturers, restaurants, sporting goods and insurance companies, trade associations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and professional sports organizations.
Because it’s so much easier to lead on the road to maintaining a lifetime of health when you do it as a family. And this fall is a great time to start on the path, even by simply eating meals together as a family or going on a walk. If you’re like me, though, there’s always your local corn maze. Or jumping in a big pile of leaves. However you choose to stay healthy, the best way is to do it together.
To get even more ideas and information on the benefits of staying healthy together, join Together Counts at a Twitter party on 10/17 from 8-9 PM EST with the hashtag #TogetherCounts. You can RSVP here.
