Boost your immunity by increasing your intake of Vitamin D and Zinc

covid19 health wellbeing Oct 18, 2020

We are all very aware of the threat of Covid-19 - I can't believe that anyone could have escaped this....

We are also aware the benefits of a 'healthy lifestyle'. But just what does this mean? And, how do I 'get one'!

Well, surprise surprise this is not something that you can just buy. It is a commitment to doing a range of things that support your body...

When you are challenged, how do you react?

 

Saturday 26 September - reactions to some daft actions!

 

Sometimes we do the craziest of things.... and then we can't see the way forward... ever been there?

I bumped the central heating timer switch and managed to turn the whole system off during a very cold spell - oops! Worse, this isn't the first time I've done that..

Oh well, let's hope it is a...

Here we go again....

Day 1 of the second wave of UK lockdown measures - 24 September 2020.

As the world grapples with how to save lives and slow the spread of the Covid-19 Coronavirus, we are each going through our own inner challenge.

I am capturing my views and observations, as we, here in the UK, go back into restrictive measures after a summer that saw many exploring...

Being adaptable and going with the flow...

 

Day 48... Sunday 10 May following the unusual Friday holiday to celebrate VE day.

More uncertainty and perhaps a glimmer of hope?

Are we coming out of lockdown? How are we coping? Have we adapted? Are we redefining what is important? As we move into the new 'rules' are we ready to deal change?

It feels like this has been a time of looking at what we...

Finding calm amidst the uncertainty

covid19 wellbeing May 07, 2020
 

So many volunteers are doing amazing things across all communities. Making food and delivering parcels, shopping, sharing, making scrubs, working in the care sector and the NHS, etc, etc.

Amazing to watch and see people step up and take on new challenges.

So, people seem to be struggling at the moment. How are you doing?

The initial three weeks were...

New month - Time to reflect, wisen up and make defined purposeful changes

covid19 wellbeing May 02, 2020
 

Friday 1st May - a new month...

Traditionally a day to celebrate the start of Spring - dancing, merriment and lots of colour. This year it is all change - no surprise there then!

A pre-planned change for our public holiday this year to celebrate 75 years of VE Day, and so we have a Friday bank holiday next week rather than our usual Monday bank holiday....

Supporting and being supported. Connecting and being creative.

 

Thursday April 30th and day 38 in the UK lockdown. Almost 40 days! Wow..

My theme for today is about supporting others but also accepting and allowing others to support you! We are all human and this time is challenging - for all of us.

Who are you supporting? Who is supporting you? and how?

A plumber

I received great support from a local plumber who was...

Can you accept and love yourself, just the way you are?

 

Routine is essential...

Day 36 in the UK lockdown... As we start week six, what have you learnt?

Routine, done consistently for any length of time (40 days is good...) leads to habits. Are your habits supporting you or hindering you?

Have you been able to change things in your life that have made you feel great? Exercise, studying, nutrition, alcohol...

Bravely learning new skills - grooming a schnauzer!

 

After only doing a very short walk yesterday.... I planned a longer one today. 

The intention was to get out really early and visit one of our favourite walks down to the packhorse bridge. I have avoided this walk as the riverside path is narrow and on a slope making it really difficult to keep a 2m distance from other people.

So, with an early...

The masking, unmasking and exploration of "normality"

covid19 wellbeing Apr 26, 2020
 

There have been a few conversations over the last couple of days about "normality".

What is normal?

What is a normal family life? A normal upbringing? A normal childhood? A normal relationship?

There is so much to explore here but, I believe, that the essence is in perception.

We spend our life living the way we think we are supposed to.

Doing the things...
