Choosing where to live is a big decision. It is usually determined by your employment, or where friends or family reside, but if you could choose to live in a place simply to improve your overall health would you do it? If so, Colorado Springs, Colorado is the perfect place for you!
Known for its dry and clean air, mild temperatures, and 300 days of sunshine per year, Colorado Springs offers its residents a healthy, outdoor environment to enjoy year round. With many State and National Parks residing within its city limits or bordering towns, Colorado Springs offers every individual the opportunity to take up just about any sport they could desire – from hiking to kayaking in the summer to skiing and snowshoeing in the winter, all offering invigorating fresh air and beautiful scenery. According to the Colorado Health Organization regular exercise and sunshine increase the overall physical and psychological wellness of residents, placing Coloradans among the highest health rankings each year:
• Colorado residents have the second highest well-being in the nation (Gallup, 2013)
• Colorado’s working-age adults are healthier than their counterparts in most other states (Colorado Health Report Card)
• The state has the second-lowest prevalence of hypertension and the third-lowest prevalence of diabetes
• Colorado’s adults are more likely than adults in all but four other states to exercise
• Colorado has the lowest rate of adult obesity in the country (Source)
Along with promoting physical health through exercise, the Colorado Springs region highly encourages healthy living through healthy eating. Urban gardens allow residents to grow their own organic fruits and vegetables, and if you aren’t a gardener, Farmer’s Markets and Food Coops provide locally grown, organic produce for purchase year round. If you prefer going to the store, the Colorado Springs area houses several health food chains sprinkled throughout the city – for humans and their four legged friends.
