About Your Heart Health
If you know your numbers, when you complete the Your Heart Age
Forecast, you'll be invited to sign up (for free) to set up Your
Heart Health Plan. Your Heart Health Plan is a
programme that will help you address areas in your life that
affect your heart health and are most in need of change. You'll be
asked a few short questions about your lifestyle to help us
create your plan and your answers will be checked against Your
Heart Age Forecast results, to pick up any areas of particularly
high risk. You'll receive information in your plan about
these areas first.
You'll receive a series of emails - one a week for six weeks -
that will guide you through Your Heart Health Plan. Each
email will contain tips and information to help you get rid of
harmful lifestyle choices and help you to start making some new,
much healthier ones.
As with anything in life, making a change takes practice!
So the 6 week plan is intended as an intensive training course,
that will teach you things you'll need to keep doing for the rest
of your life.
But don't worry, you won't be doing it all by yourself - in
three months time you'll be checked up on, via email, to see how
you're going. It's also a great idea to get friends or family
to do the Forecast and sign up for a heart health plan too, so you
can go through the process together. Anytime after you finish the
initial 6 week plan, you can redo Your Heart Age Forecast and
create a new plan - but remember, changing your numbers will not
happen overnight. You will need to stick at your plan for at
least three months before you can expect to see significant changes
to your numbers.
If you don't know your numbers, you can still sign up for our
basic Heart Health Plan and 'Get Your Numbers' reminders.
Your plan won't be personalised, but at least it's a way to start
reviewing your lifestyle. The key thing is to get your
numbers, so you can receive your tailored Heart Health Plan.
