San Francisco County Health Information

San Francisco County is a very busy place. Everyday, people go to work, run errands, and take care of various responsibilities to cope with their fast-paced lifestyle. As a result, San Franciscans barely have time for exercise. Fast food has also become a trend. Just think about how quick and easy it is to get hold of a subway sandwich. How about grabbing one or two hotdogs from the stand around the corner? Saving a few minutes seems more important than taking the time to eat a healthy meal.

More often than not, physical inactivity and poor eating habits result in weight problems, heart disease, hypertension, diabetes and so much more. As a consequence, a person’s quality of living is affected.

Today, numerous “natural supplements” and so-called “health foods” flood the market. Although some of these products actually help, nothing beats the benefits that come from a healthy lifestyle. The question is: What makes a lifestyle “healthy”? Here are a few concepts to help you out:

  • Healthy living is about having a balanced life. It isn’t just about losing weight or attaining the perfect figure you’ve always dreamed of. It’s about being physically and mentally sound. Your goal is to enjoy every day of your life and live it to the fullest.
  • Organic food and exercise are essential when you want to stay healthy. Artificially-made health products are popular, but it’s nothing compared to the all-natural way of achieving good health.
  • Consistency and discipline are keys to healthy living. You can’t achieve it with just a snap of your fingers. It takes time and patience. Eat healthily. Exercise regularly. You’ll be surprised at the results and you’ll never regret it.

San Francisco County’s health department is implementing various programs and events to emphasize the importance of a healthy lifestyle. Health programs such as “Shape Up San Francisco” and “Community Health Promotion & Prevention” were implemented to help San Franciscans take care of themselves better.
