About The Habersham School

The Habersham School, Savannah
PK3-12th

The Habersham School opened its doors in fall 2012, seeking to restore education to its purest form. The academic foundation is built upon the time-honored tradition of classical, liberal arts education, where students are taught to question, to investigate, to dialogue and to create.

SouthCoast Health General Physician: Tips for a healthier life

Friday, January 31st, 2020

Your typical to-do list: Get to work, spend time with your family, be as productive as possible, cook a good dinner, clean up the house, de-stress, and, if you’re lucky, squeeze in time to work out.

“For so many people, and Americans especially, the last piece in that long list of daily to-dos often gets overlooked,” SouthCoast Health General Physician Dr. Leslie Sizemore stated. “But keeping everything in our life running the way we want involves being kind to our bodies and keeping ourselves as healthy as possible. As easy as it is to skip working out and eating healthy, it can have negative effects on us in the long run.”

Find tips here on to how to strike a balance between work and life that includes developing healthy habits.
