Make small changes now to improve your health

'One You' is the latest health campaign from Public Health England which aims to help adults combat future disease by encouraging them to make small changes to their lifestyle today.

There is only One You...make small changes now to improve your health

Modern life makes it hard to be healthy. Whether we are eating the wrong things, drinking more than we should, continuing to smoke, or not being active enough, all of these things add up.

These habits could make it harder to keep up with your kids or that your jeans are a bit tighter. More seriously, they increase the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, cancer and heart disease.
