Get involved in the new ‘One You’ campaign which aims to encourage adults to build more physical activity into their life by simply walking briskly for ten continuous minutes or more every day.
Ten continuous minutes of brisk walking everyday gets the heart pumping and can make you feel better, more energetic and improve your mood. Over time it can also help lower the risk of serious illnesses like heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Download the free Active 10 app which shows how much brisk walking you are currently doing and provides tips and encouragement on how you can fit ten minute bursts of brisk walking into your day.
What is One You?
Launched in March 2016, One You from Public Health England is the first nationwide programme to support adults in making simple changes that can have a huge influence on their health, could help prevent diseases such as type 2 diabetes, cancer
and heart disease and reduce risk of suffering a stroke or living with dementia, disability and frailty in later life. It aims to inform, energise and engage millions of adults, especially those in the 40-60 ‘middle aged’ group, to make changes to improve their own health by eating well, moving more, drinking less and quitting smoking. One You also provides information on free
health checks and how people can reduce their stress levels and sleep better.
