Lose weight, improve your heart health and lower your cholesterol by taking part in the latest Do Something Different programme which begins on 14 February.
The Stroke Association has once again joined forces with the West Norfolk Partnership and the University of Hertfordshire to deliver the hugely successful Do Something Different programme.
Carmel Austin, Stroke Prevention Co-Ordinator, explained: "It is a well-established fact that being overweight can increase your chances of high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes, all of which can increase your chances of stroke. Diet and exercise are a really important part of stroke prevention. Healthy eating and regular exercise can help keep your heart in good form, can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol and can help you lose weight.
"But establishing new healthy habits can be hard to do and willpower alone is never enough. The Do Something Different programme is designed to encourage people to break deep-set habits, helping them to change their lives for the better in a new, fun way."
Project Manager Ronel Erasmus explained: "Do Something Different tackles the habits that make us behave the way we do. Relying on willpower alone rarely works. This programme actually starts to untangle the web of habits that we all create and enables people to break-free from old habits and really sustain the changes that they make."
The free 7-week programme begins on Tuesday, 14 February, at South Lynn Community Centre, King's Lynn. Each 1½-hour session begins at 11am. To book a place call Carmel Austin, Stroke Association Co-ordinator on 01553 631428.
