This episode is designed to encourage you to take actions to improve your health, fitness and wellness by making changes to your lifestyle, so you can become more fit for life, and thereby move towards your new normal.
I tell you about:
I invite you to listen to the scientific evidence, experience-based information and real-life stories on this show so you might make choices in leading your life to help you live vibrantly, happily, purposefully, for a long time, disease-free, and above all with a low risk of ever being admitted to the Intensive Care Unit, the place in the hospital I work.
Perhaps you might consider a 28 day challenge (or even a 7 day one) yourself. Small steps are important. Incremental change, particularly around habits, can be very beneficial for your health and happiness.
Live well, feel well, do well.
Dr Andrew Davies
