Healthy Lifestyle... at any age

Many factors go together to improve an individual’s health. Their health needs change through life as they get older and different issues might impact on men’s and women’s health. However, a healthy lifestyle is important at any stage of an individual’s life.

Diet and nutrition, exercise, smoking cessation and managing alcohol intake are modifiable lifestyle factors that can be addressed to improve health.

Other factors may not be readily addressed by individuals but rely upon society working together to promote healthy living and working environments.

Health inequalities arise when individuals or communities are not empowered to make healthy lifestyle choices.
