Take steps for better health
The World Health Organization provides the advice and evidence needed for people to lead healthy lives. Good health requires the commitment of many, from lawmakers to lunch makers. And there are steps each of us can take to promote and protect health. These include being more active, eating healthy, and avoiding tobacco and harmful use of alcohol.
Adults can improve their health by doing at least 150 mins of moderate-intensity, or 75 mins of vigorous-intensity, aerobic physical activity, per week, or an equivalent combination of both.
A healthy diet is essential for good health and being protected against many chronic illnesses. Eating vegetables and fruit and consuming less salt, sugar and saturated fats are essential for a healthy diet.
Digital technologies offer limitless possibilities to improve health, from personal fitness to building stronger health systems for entire countries.
Avoiding tobacco, or taking proven measures to quit, are among the surest ways for people to avoid many illnesses and, instead, take the road to good health.
