Coloradans maintain healthy habits year-round, while other states fall off the wagon during the holidays, report says

A recent analysis of data from assessed the health and health habits of Americans while on vacation.

“To determine which states are keeping their bodies and minds the healthiest heading into the holiday season, we analyzed eight key measures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention covering nutrition, exercise, smoking and health. The results show that if Americans in some states maintaining their healthy habits all year round, others are less likely to do so – and therefore, more at risk of heart disease and mental health issues,” the report read.

Colorado was eventually named the eighth healthiest state before the holidays. According to the analysis, 83.6% of Coloradans say they have exercised in the past month.

The state also has one of the lowest rates of heart disease in the country, at around 5%, the website reported.

Utah was named the healthiest pre-holiday stay, and Louisiana was named the worst.
