Want to make a change in your life but don’t know where to start? Lifestyle changes mean making personal and conscious decisions to take actions that should help decrease your risk of injury or disease and overall improve your quality of life. But it can be difficult to know where to start.

But the most important step is the first one, beginning to make small changes that can make a huge difference to your life.

Promoting good health in all aspects of life. This is the secret to lifestyle management. Trust us when we say that when it comes to your health, your lifestyle choices generally seem to be much more dominant than your genes. So there’s no time like the present to adopt new habits to improve your health and wellbeing.

Here at The Fire Fighters Charity, we believe in a whole-person approach, looking at all factors that may be affecting your overall sense of happiness or wellbeing. That’s why we also look at lifestyle management as part of the whole picture of your recovery.

We can help you to achieve your goals, equipping you with all the tools and support you need to make real behaviour changes that will have a huge impact on your overall sense of wellbeing. We can help you find successful strategies by encouraging, motivating and assisting you within many areas of your life.

Remember, it can take time to develop new habits or change existing ones, so be patient with yourself and remember that making healthy lifestyle changes is a long-term commitment to yourself.

We can help you with many lifestyle management resources, such as maintaining a healthy body weight, tips for self care, knowing your alcohol limits, understanding the impact of smoking, eating well, getting enough exercise, improving your sleep, drinking more fluids, coping with depression, loneliness or anxiety, or helping you manage long-term health conditions such as diabetes or high blood pressure.

You can read all of these articles and many more via our health and wellbeing resource library.

But most importantly, remember you’re not alone in this journey. We can be with you each step of the way, helping you find a long-term solution that works for you.
