Live

To live a healthy lifestyle, we need to make smart behavioural choices including about the food we eat, how we prepare our food, the time we are physically active, how we manage stress, our sexual behaviour and other habits such as not smoking, not taking drugs and not abusing alcohol. Unhealthy lifestyle choices increase the risk of developing common chronic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart problems, gout, cancers and mental health problems.

Chronic diseases are a serious problem in South Africa, affecting both adults and children. So Healthy Lifestyle Actions are required by all of us!

There are several actions you can take immediately towards increasing your health for protection against developing chronic diseases.

Today you can Take Actions that promote and protect your health for a happier and longer life!
