We all have the theory on what the best ways to live a healthier life are. We have all read (or seen) the book on how to get fit and stay fit through a nutritionally balanced diet and exercise. However, very few places can claim to be providing tangible opportunities to its citizens to develop a healthier life like White Church is. The City Hall has invested time and budget towards programs that motivate citizens to get healthier. Through an ambitious program that started 3.5 years ago, the citizens of White Church are making significant changes to their lifestyles. Here´s how they are doing it:
Not that the people at White Church have anything against GMOs but the trend of growing their own crops naturally has extended significantly. Neighbors are allowed to start their own orchards on their front municipal lawn. There are entire neighborhoods with extensive crop yieldings that include carrots, tomato, lettuce, radish, and cucumber, among others. This allows the consumption of vegetables grown on organic soil.
More fields have been open for the production of crops. Temperature, climate, and soil conditions in the city allow for the yielding of wheat and corn. Some of these fields have specialized in the growing of potatoes. Production of them was affected last year by not-so-heavy rain but farmers still managed.
Extensive campaigns on eating healthy
There have been many campaigns on how to eat healthy including the “Wash Your Hands” celebration. During this celebration, stations with hand soap are placed in Central Park motivating people to wash their hands and educating kids on how to do it correctly.
Alimentation programs have been implemented across the educational curriculum with a special focus on abiding by the food pyramid. Important information on what to eat and it what amounts is part of the health program.
More gyms are opening
Very importantly, citizens in White Church have embraced fitness as a form of life. This has awakened the demand of gyms and recreation places. At least five basketball courts have been opened in the last three years. Gymnasiums have opened at a rate of three per year, yielding more and more people into gyms.
Gyms and health centers have plans that include programs to get fit and stay fit. But not only gyms are opening but so are professionals in personal training. More and more people are hiring such professionals and acquiring a healthier lifestyle.
More fitness and nutritional professionals
Citizens are moving towards specializing as nutrition specialists and fitness experts. This provides more places of reference for White Church inhabitants to go to whenever they need detailed and customized meal plans.
