Well that’s us almost into the second half of 2020 – time flies but sometimes, not that fast.

I have however today, gained another candle on my cake and it’s very much a fire hazard and has been for a looooonnnnngggg time!!  

We’re eventually finding out about restriction easing; what’s open and what still isn’t.  At least when we’re out for a walk, we can head to a café for a take away coffee/tea which is something.  Although toilets aren’t open ...

Complementary Fitness 22 June newsletter

First off, how are you this week and how was last week for you? 

What did you do/achieve?  Anything new?

Well, last week, the weather (again) was mixed with mist, rain and then lovely (well, I mean dry, warm and sunny) from lunchtime on Thursday & Friday.

I had started running again and went short runs every day for about 10 day but, I wasn’t really doing any strength works so then ditched the running and thought instead, I’ll need to replace that ...

Week 14, how did that happen?  How are you and how are you coping?

Like me and some others, are you having good days and not-so-good ones?

Is everything a bit samey?  

Or are you staying as positive as you can and getting ‘stuff’ done eg tidying, cleaning everything – again?

Weeks ago, when this all started, I was really positive, got my ‘house in order’, cleaned (and even deep cleaned) everything in sight, cupboards emptied, cleaned, restocked, steam cleaned carpets, under beds ...

Health & Lifestyle:

Having excess body fat seems to matter when it comes to catching COVID-19 as well as the severity of the symptoms.  Yet, the reality is we now find ourselves in a new environment where our fridge is only a few steps away and we may not be as active as we previously were and when excess weight was not an issue ...

Complementary Fitness 1 June news + video

I’ve been spending some time over the last 3 weeks listening to a couple of docuseries online and the first was listening to 3 different speakers/interviews a day who talked with the host (John Robbins) about aspects of food and health in a series called The Food Revolution Network.  Many of the eminent speakers were US medical doctors and all spoke about the importance of a whole food, plant based diet and how this can help improve many diseases.

The second ...

Complementary Fitness 25 May news, info + video

According to a study of relatively active people who normally walk around 9,000 steps a day, they were asked to reduce that amount to around 5,000 steps a day and the conclusion was that 88% of people reported symptoms of depression, nearly everyone had less energy, and they reported having more anxiety and stress.  31% also reported a decrease in meaning or satisfaction of life which is really significant.

When we become less active, our brain chemistry and mood are affected. 

Conversely, ...

Exercise:

We know that exercise is great for our mental and physical health and if we can continue to keep ourselves fit and active by doing some indoor workouts during the week, then that’s great, well done.  When we combine that with getting outdoors and regular walking (around 30 minutes a day to reach our daily/weekly targets to keep ourselves active and fit), it’s been shown to reduce risk of heart disease and reduce the risk of stroke by 35%, reduce ...

First of all: a big massive THANK YOU for the absolutely gorgeous flowers I was received on Thursday last week from M&S.  Although there was a lovely card inside, there wasn’t a note to say who’d ordered and sent them.  I know they are from someone who said they appreciate the videos and I’m really touched with gratitude and appreciation for your kindness.  If you can let me and I’ll message you personally to thank you x

Did you know that ...
