Take the 'How are you' health quiz

How are YOU?

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.

One You reminds you that your health matters. Start the fight to healthy by taking the free online health quiz, ‘How Are You’, which provides personalised recommendations and directs you to free tools and offers to help you take action.
