Help is on hand for residents to positively kick start the New Year by making plans for a healthier and happier life.
The JustBe Croydon website at www.JustBeCroydon.org has tips and advice to support you to achieve those common resolutions like quitting smoking, losing weight and being more active.
Croydon Council has placed posters around the borough to encourage local people to visit the website and go along with the New Year momentum to set realistic, personal goals to boost their overall health and wellbeing.
The website has a Health MOT tool, which only takes five minutes to complete. It provides residents with a personalised report to consider how best to meet their health goals in the coming year.
People can also visit a Croydon Live Well advisor at their nearest health hub and speak to them about getting fitter and improving their mind and body. There is no need to make an appointment to see an advisor and the health hub locations can be found on the JustBe Croydon website.
“The JustBe Croydon website has lots of information and advice to help residents to ditch unhealthy habits and kick start 2019 with positive intentions. We know that making New Year’s resolutions can seem daunting, especially if you have over indulged in those festive treats. However, a few simple changes like reducing the salt and sugar in your food and drink and doing just a few minutes of exercise daily, can make a big difference to your future health and happiness.”
