Seven in 10 Adults are Motivated to Get Healthier in 2021 Due to COVID-19

1 February 2021

Back

An England-wide survey by Gov.uk of over 5,000 adults found that 80% of people aged over 18 have made the decision to change their lifestyle in 2021.

The survey showed that 8 in 10 adults aged over 18 have decided to modify their lifestyle this year, with 7 in 10 saying that they are motivated to make healthier lifestyle changes due to coronavirus (COVID-19) following new evidence which shows that being obese significantly increases your chance of being admitted to intensive care with COVID-19 compared to those with a healthy body mass index (BMI).

With an increase of 43% from last year, in 2021 around 6 million adults aged 40 to 60 plan to:

  • eat more healthily (40%)
  • lose weight (39%)
  • exercise more (41%)

Dr Alison Tedstone, Chief Nutritionist at PHE said:

“The past year has been immensely challenging and being stuck at home much more this year, understandably, has seen some unhealthy habits creeping up on us all. But our survey shows the vast majority of us want to do something positive this year to improve our health and now is a good time for a reset, whether it be eating more healthily, being a healthier weight, getting more active, stopping smoking or doing more to look after our mental health.”

Public Health Minister Jo Churchill, said:

“There is no doubt 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted particularly the impact obesity can have on some people’s health and health outcomes.”
