Use the lockdown to get healthy - you won't be alone. An England-wide survey of over 5,000 adults found that 80% of people aged over 18 have made the decision to change their lifestyle in 2021, with seven in 10 adults saying that they are motivated to make healthier lifestyle changes due to coronavirus (COVID-19).
To support the public in making these changes, Public Health England has launched its latest ‘Better Health new year’ campaign to encourage the nation to work towards a healthier lifestyle – whether its losing weight, getting more active, looking after mental wellbeing, or quitting smoking. The campaign offers support through a variety of tools and apps, including the updated NHS 12 Week Weight Loss app. You can read more about the national survey and campaign here, and download tools and access support here. Good luck!
