Health Tips
QF is looking forward to greeting you at National Sport Day 2015. Meanwhile, here are some health tips to get you started.

Don’t be overly ambitious
Drastic changes to your lifestyle will be difficult to sustain - improving your health safely is a gradual process, so start with small, easy steps.

Be positive
A positive attitude can help to strengthen your immune system and boost your overall health. Your body listens to what you are thinking, so think positive.

Focus your efforts
With all the healthy living advice on offer, it’s easy to be overwhelmed – start by addressing just one habit that is detrimental to your health. This could be quitting smoking, reducing your junk food habit, or swapping the couch for the gym for 10 minutes a day.

Improve your diet
Try to eat five portions of fresh vegetables and fruit each day – this will go a long way to meeting your nutritional needs and supporting your wider efforts to get healthy. At the same time, reduce your intake of processed food.

Exercise daily
There is no way around it – if you want to be healthy, you have to exercise frequently. Just ten minutes a day can help to keep you fit and reduce the health risks associated with ageing.
