Health-on-Line considers the harsh realities of New Year’s resolutions


With the New Year well under way, Health-on-Line considers the harsh realities of keeping healthier living resolutions.

For many, the New Year marks a time when they can ‘start again’. This new beginning often results in a resolution to become healthier. January inevitably sees an increase in sales of no-smoking aids, healthy food and gym membership, all fuelled by the ruthlessly timed advertising which takes full advantage of the optimistic attitude of the nation. However, according to a number of sources, between 80% and 90% of these resolutions will be broken by February, so is the investment worthwhile?

Mike Dalby, director of online Private Medical Insurance (PMI) company, Health-on-Line comments, “We are all aware that the excesses of Christmas can result in a sluggish start to the New Year and New Year’s resolutions often provide the motivation to make some important lifestyle changes.”

“The old adage that prevention is better than cure may well be true but sometimes prevention comes at a cost. With a financial layout for gym memberships, new kit for workouts and change of diet, these lifestyle changes can mount up to a significant investment. Whilst I’m not advising people to ignore steps which could enhance wellbeing, sometimes a few minor tweaks to lifestyle coupled with a small investment in the ‘cure’ is more sensible and will long outlive the good intentions of expensive New Year’s resolutions”.

Private Medical Insurance (PMI) provides access to private hospital treatment, ensuing quick diagnosis and treatment should the worst occur. Health-on-Line offers a modular based policy which allows individuals to select the benefit options most appropriate to their budget and lifestyle, and with policies from as little as £27.48* per month this protection is more affordable than often thought.

Dalby concludes, “People often mistakenly believe that PMI is a luxury. In the past it may have been the case but this no longer holds true. In many cases the cost of one of our policies is less than the monthly subscription to your local gym. And whilst gym membership requires a commitment to regularly attend in order to gain the benefits, PMI with Health-on-Line can be set up in a matter of minutes with cover instantly available. This means that you can continue working on keeping those resolutions, safe in the knowledge that, whatever life may throw at you, your health insurance is in place and you’re covered”.
