Drinking too much too often causes us harm. That extra beer or glass of wine can soon slip into a daily habit. Before we know it, we’re regularly drinking above recommended guidelines. Drinking less will do wonders for your health. Stress less, think more clearly, feel energised and sleep better.
Smoking: that harmful habit that cripples our health and drains our bank balance. Quitting is the most effective thing you can do for your health. Don’t focus on the loss, focus on the gains; your savings goal, adding years to your life; feel and look younger. Switch the words ‘I’m trying to quit’ with the mantra ‘I am a non-smoker’. Make your stop-smoke plan with the support of a LiveWell coach.
Sitting still can make us ill: Getting up and out and moving has tremendous benefits to our health. Small steps lead to big change. All too often, we don’t get our daily dose of exercise. The less we do, the harder it is, yet the more we do, the easier it becomes!
