Kickstart your health with new national campaign

You may have spotted the adverts on TV for a new national campaign encouraging millions of people to kickstart their health and reduce the risk of serious illness, including COVID-19.

Part of the government’s new obesity strategy, the campaign offers free tools that will help to support people who want to work towards a healthier weight.

Helping you towards better health choices

The Better Health campaign includes a new app for the free 12-week NHS weight loss plan. This can help you to:

  • set weight loss goals
  • plan your meals
  • make healthier food choices
  • get more active and burn more calories
  • record your activity and progress

It’s the perfect accompaniment to Fuse, our own occupational health portal and app.

Helpful tools to kickstart your health

The campaign website offers links to online exercises, as well as weight-loss plans, to help kickstart your healthier lifestyle.

Other helpful tools, include a BMI calculator, health quiz and apps for recipes, reading food labels, daily walks and running.

The first step to a healthier lifestyle

As many people continue to work from home, the impact of this and the coronavirus lockdown are starting to affect the health and wellbeing of employees.

As well as the new work-related health issues, highlighted in our recent survey, any inactivity will also increase the risk of putting on more weight than is healthy.

You can find out more at the Better Health website.
