‘One You’ will help adults make small changes to their lifestyle in midlife which double their chances of being healthy at 70 and beyond
How are you?
The Hairy Bikers are supporting One You and encouraging adults to make small changes to improve their health by taking the new online health quiz ‘How Are You’
Everyday habits and behaviours - such as eating too much unhealthy food, drinking more alcohol than is recommended, continuing to smoke and not being active enough - are responsible for around 40% of all deaths in England, and cost the NHS more than £11 billion a year.
One You encourages people to reappraise their lifestyle choices, put themselves first and do something about their own health.
It reminds people that it’s never too late to improve their health - making small lifestyle changes such as eating well, drinking less alcohol, quitting
The campaign encourages adults to take part in a free online health quiz, called ‘How Are You’, to identify where they can make small changes.
The quiz provides personalised recommendations and directs people to tools and advice created by experts to help them take action where it’s most needed.
Food and YOU
There are lots of cheap and tasty ways you and your family can eat well every day.
Did you know? Preparing and cooking your own meals is usually cheaper than buying a takeaway or a ready meal.
Exercise and YOU
Being active is really good for your body, mind and health – and there are lots of easy ways you and your family can get moving!
Did you know? Even a brisk walk of 30 minutes a day can reduce your chances of getting diabetes or cancer
Drink and YOU
If you're not careful it's easy for the occasional glass in the evening to quickly become 2 or 3 glasses most days.
Men and women are advised not to drink more than 14 units of alcohol a week. This is the same as 6 pints of average strength beer a week. Regularly drinking more than this can increase the risk to your health.
Did you know? Drinking is full of calories, 5 pints per week over a year adds up to over 40,000 calories.
Sleep and YOU
Good-quality sleep is more important than the amount of sleep that you get and it helps to keep you feeling healthy.
Did you know? Sleeping well can help boost your immune system and help you fight off illness.
Smoking and YOU
There's lots of free support to help you quit.
Did you know? More than 80% of smoke is invisible and odourless. Protect your family by quitting.
