Promoting good lifestyle choices in the community is one step toward empowering people to take control of their health. Healthy By Design recognition encourages event coordinators and event venues to take part in the effort to make our community healthier.
The Healthy By Design Gardeners’ Market is designed to bring healthy, fresh, local, and affordable fruits and vegetables to the community. The market is also a social meeting place to celebrate health and nutrition. Healthy By Design is partnering with Billings Parks, Recreation, and Public Lands to bring the market to the South Park. The Gardeners’ Market is located in South Park on the corner of South 28th Street and Sixth Avenue South in Billings, MT. The season runs from the second week of June through the first week in October.
Active transportation includes any mode of travel that promotes physical activity, such as biking, walking, skateboarding, and even taking the bus. Body-powered travel not only provides an opportunity for daily physical activity, but also connects people to their daily needs, like work, school, groceries, and fun.
5-2-1-0 is a simple, easy-to-remember formula to help children (and even adults) achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Healthy By Design’s 5-2-1-0 initiative has been seen across the community on social media and in many promotional materials provided to our community partners.
A sick employee is a more costly employee. Ill workers who are absent or underperforming reduce an organization’s productivity. Healthy By Design’s focus on Worksite Wellness promotes physical activity at the workplace and the nutritional quality of food available. We work with employers to adopt worksite nutrition and physical activity guidelines. Those that support this program will develop a healthier and more productive workforce.
Active living is healthy living. Healthy By Design encourages members of the community to discover ways to become more active. Every person and every day is different, but we can help you build skills you need to become more active at home and at work. We offer a free class (not an exercise class) that will help you set realistic goals, overcome barriers to activity, and stay motivated to stay active!
