We now know that it’s the small changes that can make a huge difference to your health so why not start today by taking the One You online quiz? One You aims to encourage adults, particularly those aged 40-74, to take control of their health to enjoy significant benefits now, and in later life. One You Kent offers fantastic local support and information to help you achieve a healthier lifestyle.
The One You Kent website www.oneyoukent.org.uk also provides a comprehensive selection of health and fitness information as well as the opportunity to book a session with a One You advisor for help in setting achievable health goals. This includes information about stopping smoking and support reducing alcohol intake, advice for maintaining a healthy weight as well as advice on a range of lifestyle issues.
One You is the first campaign in England to target adults in midlife in a holistic way and it will encompass all our adult health brands from now on. It follows our other successful holistic campaign, Change4Life, which will continue to be aimed at children and families.
One You comes at an important time. In 2014 the NHS published its Five Year Forward View which set out a clear direction for change to secure the future of the nation’s healthcare system. Achieving a ‘step-change’ in prevention is at the core of the Forward View and we need to support people in taking steps to reducing their risk of developing avoidable conditions.
Currently 42% of adults in midlife are living with at least one long-term health condition and the NHS spends a minimum of £11bn a year on treating preventable illnesses caused by the effects of poor diet, inactivity, smoking and drinking alcohol.
