The NHS has created a new quiz that works out just how healthy you are whilst giving you guidance and recommendations to help improve your life.

The quiz was created to help people change their bad habits after the NHS found that 40% of deaths in the UK were linked to damaging behaviour.

Now the quiz lets people directly discover how these seemingly small bad habits can have a big impact on your health and what you can do to improve them.

The test tells you exactly what you need to change if you want to make a permanent advantage to your life and better your health.
