Abilene’s 2023 Active Living Plan is meant to get our community involved in every day activities that keep us all healthier! We want our community to be the best it can be, and that means we have to intentionally live in a way that keeps us all happy and health.

What is active living?

Active living makes physical activity a part of your daily life. A person can do this by parking further away from an entrance, taking the stairs instead of an elevator, or by standing during a virtual meeting. 

why do we need an active living plan?

Abilene has a high rate of adult obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes. All of these issues can be helped by adding little activities to our daily like, making all of Abilene healthier and happier!
