On June 11, 2015, the Obama Administration launched the “Healthy Self” campaign that represents a joint effort between the White House, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), including the Surgeon General, to promote healthy living (see http://www.hhs.gov/blog/2015/06/11/invest-your-healthy-self.html).

The Resource Center is committed to sharing information about community events throughout the year to educate employees about preventive actions they can take to stay healthy and well. That includes healthy eating, leading a tobacco-free and drug-free lifestyle, taking care of emotional and mental well-being, and of course – taking advantage of TRC’s offerings aimed at improving your health.

Commit to making your health a priority and join the Healthy Self campaign today, by posting a “Healthy Selfie” on social media.  It could be a shot of you working out; choosing a salad or fruit over less healthy options; bypassing the elevators to take the stairs; or heading into the doctor’s office for a checkup.  Take a selfie of anything that conveys your commitment to your healthy self, and that may motivate your friends and co-workers to follow your lead.

We all deserve to live healthy, secure lives – not just for ourselves, but for our families and loved ones as well.  Spread the word on the Healthy Self campaign, post a Healthy Selfie, and invest in your own health and well-being.  It’s an investment we can all afford to make!

For all TRC employees:  If you post a Healthy Selfie to The Resource Center’s Facebook page (or your own Facebook page), you will be entered into a drawing in which 5 individuals to receive a healthy lunch delivered to their work site.

The drawing will be held the end of June, so post your Healthy Selfie.  Send Tess (tess.kerzner@resourcecenter.org) a link to your post or a copy of your post!  The above picture is Tess’ Selfie that she posted.  Tess has committed to walking her dog, Isaac, every day for her own health and for his!  What about you?
