Skip One Dessert Or Sugary Beverage

It's day 4 of the Small Steps = Big Changes, powered by support from Humana.

Are cookies, cakes, specialty coffees, candy, or sodas your guilty pleasure?

Today, skip a goody that you would normally consume. Instead of reaching for your afternoon soda or latte, redirect your attention to healthier choices such as walking around the building lobby, engaging in a 2-minute meditation, breathing exercises, or drinking water infused with fruit.

Don’t stress about the long-term — just focus on today. By reducing your sugar intake even for one day, you’re doing your body good.
