Health isn’t just about keeping sickness at bay. It’s about living better on the whole: embracing mindfulness, eating nourishing foods, maintaining social contact, and doing things you actually enjoy. Making small aspects of your lifestyle more rewarding can have a big impact on your overall well-being; some things as minute as caring for a houseplant can even help you increase your life span. Watch the video above to find out more things you can do to get just a little closer to living longer and thriving.

Maintain that healthy lifestyle by applying for an Aflac insurance policy. The illustrious Aflac Duck is there to answer your questions via DuckChat. He can help you with everything from clarifying insurance lingo, to helping you apply for the policy you are interested in.
