These are troubling times and it’s all gone a little crazy! We’re hoarding bog rolls, filling our freezers and hiding indoors under self-isolation. I for one feel like I’m in an apocalypse movie! Where did Covid-19 come from and how can I -with all my health and wellbeing knowledge – help myself and others?
There are many wellbeing gurus out there who are no doubt doing just what I am doing … wondering how we can use our knowledge of fitness and nutrition to help keep you well. That’s why I’ve written a quick immune supporting guide for you to download. I am no Doctor, nor a member of the Government so my advice is to follow what those professionals suggest.

I’ve also be putting together some simple home workout videos for you to follow so you can keep your physical self moving. These aren’t difficult, just 30 min basic bodyweight programmes.

That’s the physical sorted, but for many, Isolation is going to be a challenge on mental wellbeing. Our elderly are about to be in lockdown for 4 months and those without any visiting relatives face a tough time indeed. However, I feel this generation are stronger than us. They faced the war. They faced rationing. They have this steely determination to live in the moment and take one day at a time no matter what life throws their way. My grandma suffers badly with dementia and although we’ll try to explain to her, she won’t understand. She’ll simply ask every day if she can go out. My grandad on the other hand (if he was still here) would have been another matter. His attitude would have been “I’ve been through worse kid”… He’d be the one honouring the self isolation meticulously and with complete preparation and a simple crossword. He would have paced the garden daily for exercise and shouted over the fence at his neighbour to see if they needed anything. He’d have used his time wisely fixing all sorts around the house and used the good old landline for lengthy chats and social interaction. I fear my generation and those younger won’t have such a steady attitude.
So what can we do about it? I have some ideas, but I’d love to hear yours!
