Monday marks the start of Know Your Numbers Week – are you all ready?
Know Your Numbers Week, a health campaign driven by Blood Pressure UK kicks off on Monday 18th September. This is a great opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of getting your blood pressure checked and being proactive about your health.
Having high blood pressure significantly increases the risk of health issues such as a heart attack and stroke which can potentially lead to disability, depression and even premature death.
Some top tips to achieve a healthy blood pressure include:
– Reducing salt intake
– Eating plenty of colourful fruits and vegetables
– Exercising regularly
– Maintaining a healthy weight
– Moderating alcohol intake
– Avoiding smoking
Getting your blood pressure checked regularly is highly recommended, but many people do not have the time to visit health centres. Let’s Get Healthy deliver health checks at the workplace that work around your shift patterns 24/7. This approach is valued by our clients and has been proven to boost engagement.
