It was a few weeks ago now that we were watching Saturday morning TV and saw the Hairy Bikers on BBC talking about how they had lost 6 stone between them. They were promoting the NHS and Public Health England new initiative 'One You' campaign which has been designed as an online quiz to help even the businest of people make small changes that will have a big difference on their health and wellbeing.
I've taken it and had confirmed that I need to get more sleep! I'd reccomend all Parkers give it a go and see what they can do to compliment their parking.
Take the One You quiz now.
Modern life makes it hard to be healthy
Without knowing it, by the time we reach our 40s and 50s many of us will have dramatically increased our chances of becoming ill later in life. Whether we are eating the wrong things, drinking more than we should, continuing to smoke despite everything we know, or just not being active enough, all of these small things can add up to an unhealthy you.
Making better choices today can have a huge influence on our health, and could prevent diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cancer and heart disease, and reduce our risk of suffering a stroke or living with dementia, disability and frailty in later life. But it's not easy in our busy lives – tempting treats in easy reach, bigger portions for everything we eat and technology that allows us to shop, stay in touch and be entertained without ever having to leave the sofa. Modern life is ganging up on us.
The good news is we can fight back.
One You is here to help you get back to a healthier you, supporting you to make simple changes towards a longer and happier life. One You provides tools, support and encouragement every step of the way, to help improve your health right away. You are not alone – One You can help you make small changes yourself, or with friends and family.
Take our free One You health quiz to see how you score and start the fight back to a healthier you.
