The effect of your health and your ability to work

Because we spend most of our life at work it makes sense to use this time to invest in our present and future health.

By adopting a healthy lifestyle you can dramatically reduce the risk of significant illnesses, including heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and bowel cancer.

Healthy lifestyles involve not smoking, taking exercise, eating a diet high in fibre and low in saturated fats, drinking sensibly and taking steps to reduce the stress in your life.
