It can be hard to be healthy!

In today’s society it’s often easier to make an unhealthy choice than a healthy one when it comes to our health and wellbeing. With our busy lifestyles it can be hard to find the time to exercise regularly, prepare healthy home-cooked meals and do all of the other things we know are good for us which is where One You comes in. One You is all about helping YOU to make those choices that can help you live a happier and healthier life.

What we eat, how much alcohol we drink, whether we smoke and how much exercise we do can affect our risk of type 2 diabetes, cancer, heart disease, a stroke, dementia, disability and frailty. So whether it’s losing weight, getting more active, quitting smoking, eating a healthier diet or cutting back on alcohol, One You Barnet has the tools to help you make those changes.

Why not try swapping your next drink for a non-alcoholic alternative? Even cutting back small amounts can give you more energy to play with the grandchildren, help you lose weight, give you confidence to go out and try new things, or have a clear head to get that project done at work!
