The good old days… , strolling down your driveway to wave at a neighbor and perhaps share in some gossip, meeting your friends at the local sushi restaurant for a bite to eat… we miss that, don’t we? Self-isolation and quarantine can be really tough on our minds, hearts, and bodies. We tend to see things differently and we may even start to become down-hearted, feel less energetic, and, in general, we may start forgetting what it means to stay healthy in mind, body, and soul. In fact, some of you reading this might be avoiding the scales like a plague because tucking into a bag of chips has now replaced your regular walk! Don’t worry – this is much more common than you think. So, we’re writing to share some thoughts on how to stay healthy and active during these unprecedented times, not only for your mental wellbeing, but for your muscles, heart, immune system, and general physical health, too. The key is to stay positive and to follow through on the decisions you make for your health. Remember, this too shall pass, and if we can get through this having seen to the health of ourselves and those around us, then we’ll have come out much stronger than before we started. In lieu of this, we’d like to offer you some tips to make this undertaking a smooth one and, where possible, to offer you support in those areas of your life you may feel that you’re losing your grip on slightly.
