Your health, your life, your reason to run


The everyday choices you make can have a big effect on your health, your life and your wellbeing.

Eating well, keeping active, not smoking or drinking too much alcohol and looking after your mental health can all help you stay well and enjoy life.

Healthy living can help lower your chance of getting diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes (type 2) and some cancers.

From pregnancy and birth, childhood and teenage years, into adulthood and old age, healthy choices are important for everyone. You're never too young or too old to switch to a healthier lifestyle.
