Karren Brady – first woman of football – is encouraging people to discover their health age as part of Bupa’s Helping You Find Healthy campaign. The brilliant Apprentice star and motivational speaker, spoke to The Times about her battle with illness and how important her health has become.
“When I got ill I put life into perspective,” says vice-chairman of West Ham about the aneurysm that was discovered in her brain, her subsequent treatment and finally, her recovery.
Although aware of the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle, Karren admits she has vices – drinking too much coffee and eating too late in the evening!
She confesses she thinks more about her health as she gets older but opportunities to exercise are not too abundant in her busy schedule.
Her solution is straightforward: “I just follow the simple rule that too much junk food is not good for you.”
Karren also claims that she takes life in her stride and refuses to get too stressed.
