A new website which can help people to understand their unhealthy behaviours and help them to understand the changes they might need to make is launching in Norfolk.
Ready to Change offers people the opportunity to make small changes to help tackle unhealthy behaviours, focusing on four of the biggest lifestyle behaviours: alcohol consumption, physical inactivity, smoking, and maintaining a healthy weight.
The website is suitable for anyone wanting to:
• Start some new healthy behaviours from the beginning
• Re-start some behaviours you may have tried in the past but may not have been successful with
• Keep up and maintain any healthy behaviours you’re already doing
• Support someone to make a behaviour change.
This website can also help you decide if there are any behaviours you want to change.
The information, advice and tools come from research studies. They’re proven to help people change their behaviours and improve their health.
Behavioural change might seem difficult to many people, but the COVID-19 pandemic has proven that we are capable of rapid changes in our behaviour, such as more frequent hand washing, social distancing, and mask wearing.
People are being encouraged to visit the site, look at the content, and try out some of the tools to help them in their journey.
Ready to Change promotional business cards or posters to share with your communities can be obtained via Health Information Leaflet Service (norfolkslivingwell.org.uk)
