Take small steps for better health with Omada

In observance of World Heart Day in September, King County and Omada want to provide you with tips for taking small steps to improving your heart health. There’s no question about it–regular activity really pays off, from lowering your blood sugar and cholesterol to reducing your risk of heart disease and stroke.

Omada is a personalized program that surrounds you with the tools and support you need to reach your health goals, whether that’s preventing diabetes, managing diabetes, or improving your overall health. King County offers Omada to help you build healthy habits that stick, one small change at a time. Below are tips for getting active as well as more information about the Omada Diabetes Management program and Diabetes Prevention program.

3 Ways to Get Active Today

1. Ease into it

Exercise doesn’t have to be hard to benefit you, and pushing too hard too fast can lead to injury. Start slowly and gradually: a walk or yoga can be a great way to start.

2. Listen to your body

Go slow, do what you can, and take breaks when you need. Consistent activity that you can build on slowly over time will help you see progress more than an intense activity that’s harder to stick with.

3. Bring a buddy

To get the support you need, involve the people you care about. Find a friend to walk with at lunch or someone you can text to hold you accountable for your daily goal. Create a support system to stay on track.
