Ready for a new you?
It's that time of year when, after overindulging a bit, we're all thinking about getting some healthier habits.
With the right support and motivation, you can make small changes to improve your health right away and double your chances of staying healthy as you get older.
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, smoking, or just not being active enough, all of these things add up. They increase your risk of developing conditions such as type 2 diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
