One You - Public Health England's new national campaign for adults
How are you?
In our adult years, the lifestyle choices we make can dramatically increase our chances of becoming ill later in life. Making small changes now can improve your health right away and double your chances of staying healthy as you get older. It’s never too late to start.
One You is a new campaign from Public Health England to help change the way we live our lives.
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 than we should, continuing to smoke despite everything we know, or just not being active enough, all of these small things can add up to an unhealthy you.
Making better choices today can have a huge influence on our health, and could prevent diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cancer and heart disease, and reduce our risk of suffering a stroke or living with dementia, disability and frailty in later life. But it's not easy in our busy lives – tempting treats in easy reach, bigger portions for everything we eat and technology that allows us to shop, stay in touch and be entertained without ever having to leave the sofa. Modern life is ganging up on us.
The good news is we can fight back.
One You is here to help you get back to a healthier you, supporting you to make simple changes towards a longer and happier life. One You provides tools, support and encouragement every step of the way, to help improve your health right away. You are not alone – One You can help you make small changes yourself, or with friends and family.
