“Make health a hobby!” says Dr. Travis Stork. Dr. Stork, originally from Colorado, was a guest speaker at the King Soopers Health Expo 2013. Here he talked about how to live your best life.

 

He started by explaining how eating the right food helps your body. If you are eating healthy foods you will be ready for the day and feel great.

 

Next, Dr. Stork mentioned the importance of activity. He wants you to be moving as much as possible and that working out does not have to be structured. Little bits of activity throughout the day do add up.

 

The doctor also believes that sleep is a very important part of your life. You do not want to be hyper when you go to bed or else you won’t have a good night’s sleep. If you sleep well, you will be ready for what the next day brings.

 

Finally, the doctor talked about stress. Kids have a lot of stress put on them which can come from homework or pressure about their grades. Dr. Stork recommended taking a deep breath and also getting exercise to help manage stress. Some kids and adults use food to relax, but sadly not all the food they consume is healthy, and that can make it worse.

 

I got the opportunity to visit with Dr. Stork after his presentation and he said that he would like to see more fruits and veggies as snack foods for kids. He mentioned that he likes to have his veggies with hummus or fruits with peanut butter because they are a good source of protein.

 

But there are some things that the doctor wishes not to see. Dr. Stork would like to see that wrapped or packaged snack foods are limited.

 

You can live the best life you possibly can by following the steps that Dr. Stork has recommended.
