Communicating Good Health

Posted by in Uncategorized

Angela Bassett makes a point to exercises more often than not.  Part of her workout includes friends and their routine is walking around the Rose Bowl. According she keeps healthy living interesting by eating flavorful food that are organic.

You can be sure that walking is not all she does everyday, however, in reading about her and her commitment health at 59 she looks great and communicates confidence in her every step.

Isn’t this what you want for yourself and your daughter?

You may be thinking to yourself right about now that my life is not the life of Angela Basset. She is a working woman, a mother and wife just like you with family responsibilities. She is takes health seriously and it shows.

Today, think about who you can communicate with about your commitment to health that might be interested in developing a routine. For example, everyday you all may meet at 6:45am to walk a mile. You develop it. This communicates to everyone around you that you are serious about your health.


 Add more fresh foods.

Start talking to your daughter and let her know that while you are waiting on her to finish track practice you will be walking the parking lot, even when it is freezing. One of the greatest difficulties in keeping healthy eating and exercise front and center is scheduling. When to work out is a big issue thats why I love it when I hear parents are going for a walk while they wait for their children to complete an activity. Time and preparation are keys to success. Look at your schedule for the week on Sunday and call a friend who might be able to walk with you one day during the week. Then be ready, the next day when you are waiting for your daughter, have your walking shoes packed in your bag to take a walk.

It is not easy, but you can do it.

You can do this because the facts are too severe not to begin communicating health today.


The Sad Truth

  • African American women have the highest rates of being overweight or obese compared to other groups in the U.S. About four out of five African American women are overweight or obese.
  • In 2015, African Americans were 1.4 times as likely to be obese as non- Hispanic whites.
  • In 2015, African American women were 60 percent more likely to be obese than non-Hispanic white women.
  • In 2011-2014, African American girls were 50% more likely to be overweight than non-Hispanic white girls.


You do more for your daughter by modeling good excretes and eating habits than by just telling her to eat right and exercise.
