Leading an active and healthy lifestyle is easier than you might think – and studies show those who do are happier, smarter and have more energy!
In the Fitness and Health P.L.A.Y. Project, we’ll tackle important topics like self-esteem, bullying, eating disorders and fad diets while also teaching you about beauty in other cultures, how to eat well and exercise and much more.
In this project, you’ll:
- Try a variety of different sports and activities
- Learn about sport-related injuries and the effects of stress and smoking on health
- Learn the importance of healthy eating habits and how to develop a meal plan
- Gain an appreciation and acceptance of who you are

The Environment & Healthy Living
If you are too breathless to talk while exercising, you’re working out too hard. But if you can sing or carry on a conversation while exercising, you’re not working hard enough. Learn about living a healthy active lifestyle in this 4-H project!
