Looking after yourself, health and wellbeing

 (Uploaded September 2015)

What is Wellbeing?

    

    • We all have a sense of when we feel mentally and physically well.

 

    • But sometimes we need extra support or a gentle nudge to look after ourselves so that we keep well.

 

    • By adopting five ways to wellbeing, as described below, you can increase your life expectancy by 7.5 years.

 

    • With one in four people today experiencing mental distress during their lifetime, there’s never been a better time to take your health into your own hands.


 

Live longer, feel healthier, be happier

 

Connect…                 

 

    • with the people around you. 

 

    • With family, friends, colleagues and neighbours.

 

    • At home, work, school or in your local community.

 

    • Think of these as the cornerstones of your life and invest time in developing them.

 

    • Building these connections will support and enrich you every day. 

 

Be Active…

 

    • Go for a walk or run.

 

    • Step outside.

 

    • Play a game.  

 

    • Exercising makes you feel good.

    • Catch sight of the beautiful.

 

    • Remark on the unusual.

 

    • Notice the changing seasons.

 

    • Savour the moment, whether you are walking to work, eating lunch or talking to friends.

 

    • Be aware of the world around you and what you are feeling.

 

    • Reflecting on your experiences will help you appreciate what matters.

 

Keep learning…

 

    • Try something new.

 

    • Rediscover an old interest.

 

    • Sign up for that course.

 

    • Take on a different responsibility at work.

 

    • Fix a bike.

    • Thank someone.

 

    • Volunteer your time.

 

    • Join a community group.

 

    • Look out, as well as in.

Steps you can take to look after your health

 

1. Why should I stop smoking?

 

    • Stopping smoking can make a drastic improvement to your lifestyle and health in ways you might not expect.

 

    • Once you stop smoking, some of the benefits are immediate and some are longer-term.

When you feel that you are ready to stop smoking please book an appointment with Penny Scott at the surgery for stop smoking support and management.

 

2. If I am overweight why should I lose weight?

 

    • If you're overweight or obese, losing weight can reduce your risk of some potentially serious health problems.

http://www.nhs.uk/chq/Pages/848.aspx

 

3. Why should I be alcohol aware?

 

    • The government advises that people should not regularly drink more than the lower risk guidelines of 3-4 units of alcohol for men (equivalent to a pint and a half of 4% beer) and 2-3 units of alcohol for women (equivalent to a 175 ml glass of wine).

 

    • ‘Regularly’ means drinking every day or most days of the week.

 

    • The same guidelines state that regularly drinking over them puts you at an ‘increasing risk’ of developing health problems, and if the amount you’re drinking is usually double or more than the guidelines you are putting yourself at a ‘higher risk’ of developing health problems.

4. Why should I exercise?

 

    • Exercise can reduce your risk of major illnesses, such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and cancer by up to 50% and lower your risk of early death by up to 30%.

 

    • Exercise is free, easy to take, has an immediate effect and you don’t need to see your GP to get some.

 5. Why should I eat healthily?

 

    • Many of us are eating too much, and not being active enough.

 

    • That’s why nearly two thirds of the adult population in England is overweight or obese.

 

    • The amount that you need to eat to maintain your body weight depends on a range of factors, including your size and how physically active you are.

 

    • An important part of a healthy diet is eating the right amount of calories, so that you balance the energy you put into your body with the energy you use.
