SALT LAKE COUNTY -- The Salt Lake Valley Health Department wants people to take little steps toward some big life changes.

The department, along with Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon, announced a new initiative aimed to get Utahns to commit to one healthy lifestyle change this year. It called "One Small Change."

The change can be as simple as taking the stairs instead of the elevator, choosing veggies over fries or riding a bike to work.

Salt Lake County Mayor Peter Corroon said, "We want to reduce obesity. We want people to be healthier, and we want a healthier community to live in as well."

The health department is also turning to several social media tools like YouTube, Twitter and Facebook to promote the campaign.
