Make a Change4Life
Change4Life helps families eat well, move more and live longer.
Modern lifestyles mean we often spend less time moving around and more time sitting in front of the TV, games console or computer. The range and convenience of fast food also means many of us don’t eat as healthily as we could. This can lead to people becoming overweight or obese.
Change4life Wales aims to help people make small, incremental changes to their lifestyle to improve their health and well-being.
Why make a Change4life?
Being overweight or obese can lead to serious conditions such as heart disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes. Therefore it’s important we all take responsibility for our health and take steps to improve our diets and levels of physical activity.

Creating an Active Wales
The physical activity plan, 'Creating an Active Wales', aims to make physical activity a natural part of people's lives. This means creating an environment that:
- makes it easier for people to be more physically active;
- supports children and young people to lead active lives;
- encourages more adults to be more active, more often; and
- increases people's participation in sport.
Being physically active includes many activities. It can involve:
- taking the stairs instead of the lift,
- cycling or walking to work instead of driving, or
- playing in the park with your children.
These are everyday activities - it doesn't have to mean joining a gym.
The plan highlights the benefits of doing more physical activity and eating more healthily. It also shows easy ways to make - and keep up - these changes.
