Each month we highlight one of CHALK's 10 Healthy Habits. These behaviors may seem small by themselves, but if done together they add up to a healthy lifestyle. The 10 Healthy Habits are based on the 8 Habits of Healthy Kids™ adapted with permission from Healthy Directions and its Healthy Children Healthy Futures program. The 10 Healthy Habits were adapted by community members of Northern Manhattan to ensure that their message is culturally and linguistically sensitive and appropriate. We promote these habits each month in our schools, in our medical center, and in the community through distribution of health literate, culturally sensitive, and bilingual newsletters.
