Life often gets in the way of us doing the things we know are important but don’t feel we have the time to deal with properly. This is often the case with our health.
How many times have you thought, one day… I’ll lose a few kilos, eat better, walk more, start playing sport again, address my sleep issues, quit smoking, cut back on alcohol, or sugar or salt? One day…
If any of these sound familiar, you are not alone! However, health issues can catch up with us when we least expect it.
How we live, how active we are and what we eat are all lifestyle factors. They have a major influence on whether we enjoy good health or develop diseases in the future. Chronic diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, some cancers, and even the risk of having a stroke, are often influenced by lifestyle factors.
