Medical experts agree that self-care is an important part of managing type 2 diabetes, but it can be easier said than done. After all, making good lifestyle choices sounds like something anyone can do—yet many people find that old habits, often not the healthiest, eventually creep in. The following five recommendations from Crossover Health coaches can help you stay on track:

Eat healthy.

Add fiber and complex carbs from fruits, grains, and veggies, and include Mega-3 fatty acids from salmon or tuna. Health Coach Danielle Heuseveldt describes steps you can take for mindful eating in this podcast.

Move more.

Raising your heart rate for thirty minutes every day can help lower your weight, stress levels and blood sugar. Fall brings the perfect weather for a walk around the neighborhood.

Sleep well.

Help your body rest and regenerate with quality sleep, the key to keeping hormones in line and insulin doing its job. Start with these tips for better sleep.

Quit smoking. If you’re still smoking tobacco, it’s time to stop. Smoking can prevent your body from responding effectively to insulin treatments.


Strategies like meditation, prayer, support groups or counseling can help lower stress levels and improve diabetes symptoms, but living in a culture of stress can make “calming down” difficult. Listen to this Crossover Health podcast for real-life strategies.

The Crossover Health team is with you every step of the way.
