Positively Examining Your Health With Patient.co.uk

It is New Year, I am still only 5ft 2″ and I haven’t magically lost a few stone over Christmas. To be blunt I’m feeling fairly shocking in myself and know now is the time (no time like the present) to have a good look at my weight and my health overall and look at what I can do to change things for the better. I have two young and active boys and if I don’t make changes soon-ish I will struggle to keep up with them.

 Patient.co.uk, as well as offering oodles of advice on health, diet, fitness and basically all things wellness-related have a handy survey you can take which enables you to input your data and pinpoint basically what could be done better (and what is already pretty good) and get you moving in the right direction.

According to quick test below (it says it takes 30 seconds but it doesn’t even take that) I am healthy-ish but there are still things I can do to improve. Having done the test I have been given the option to take a fuller health test. It’s free so why not?
The MyHealth Test takes ten minutes, or just under in my experience.
The results:
Ok, so not utterly fantastic then.
Normally this would have me searching for the nearest non-healthy snack however Patient.co.uk now offered me a chance to look at my lifestyle factors, see what I could do pro-actively to improve my health and set goals. Despite the not-so shocking revelation that I am not a superfit and healthy bod I was left feeling quite positive, motivated and looking forward to putting these plans in place and making changes rather than whinging about them.
If you’d like to take the initial test see the widget below and then if you really want to examine your health more closely and make positive and long-term changes keep going!

*This post was written on behalf of Patient.co.uk for a fee however this in no way alters the fact that I find it a very canny tool which has helped me make plans to get my health back on track.

How healthy am I? I asked Patient.co.uk

I was asked to have a look at Patient.co.uk, undertake a health survey and post about my results. If I am being 100% honest I wasn’t prepared for how useful (and easy) the tool would be. I’ve filled in hundreds of health surveys over the years, usually every time I sign up to a slimming club or healthy eating website. This site is a bit different.

The survey took less than the expected 10 minutes (including the time I spent looking for the tape measure to do my waist and hip measurements) and all of the questions were self explanatory. The result of the survey gave me a Q score out of 100 which gave me a good idea of my overall general health level.

Not bad but room for improvement.

I was pleased with this score however as I was filling the survey in I was already thinking about changes that I really could do with making (for example, I am a beggar for putting salt on my food, and drink no-where enough water).
Rather than giving me a list of things I mustn’t so, Patient.co.uk allowed me to set my own goals for the future, and the time frame for these and provided me with information and a free health programme (by email) to work to. I’ll give that a go and see how I get on. The recommendations so far look realistic and manageable so I’d be a fool not to.

Whether you fancy having a go at the survey and getting an indication of how healthy you are or not, the website has a fantastic well-being section which is packed with useful articles, hints and tips that you might find interesting. I’m glad I agreed to give it a go as with two young boys to look after staying healthy is so important and any help is much appreciated.
