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 alcohol than we should, continuing to smoke, or just not being active enough, all of these things add up.
These habits could make it harder to keep up with the kids in the park or mean that your favourite pair of jeans are a bit tighter. More seriously, they increase the risk of you developing conditions such as type 2 diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
Our busy lives often means that our own health is at the bottom of our list of priorities. One You is here to remind you that your health matters.
A good way to start the fight to healthy is to take our free One You health quiz, ‘How Are You’. This innovative quiz provides personalised recommendations based on your results and direct you to tools and offers to help you take action where it’s most needed.
