Important to stay fit and healthy and so we invited Rosemary Conley on the phone. Rosemary chatted with John and Craig

Rosemary also gave us some tips.

CORONA VIRUS – AND HOW TO BE POSITIVE BY ROSEMARY CONLEY CBE

We all know our vowels – A, E, I, O and U. Here are some ideas to help you stay positive in these challenging times.

  • A IS FOR ATTITUDE – TRY TO THINK OF THE THINGS YOU CAN DO AND NOT THE THINGS YOU CAN’T!
  • E IS FOR EXERCISE – STAY FIT AND ACTIVE – IN THE HOUSE OR IN YOUR FLAT – GARDENING – SPRING CLEANING – DIY – SORTING OUT DRAWERS AND CUPBOARDS – WALKING THE DOG
  • I IS FOR INTAKE – IT IS REALLY IMPORTANT THAT WE EAT HEALTHILY TO HELP FIGHT THE VIRUS – TRY TO AVOID SNACKING ON BISCUITS AND HIGH FAT CRISPS AND SAVOURY SNACKS AND TRY TO EAT PLENTY OF FRUIT AND VEGETABLES – TINNED AND FROZEN ONES ARE STILL NUTRITIOUS IF YOU CAN’T GET FRESH ONES.
  • O IS FOR OPPORTUNITIES – SUDDENLY WE HAVE TIME!
  • WE CAN EXERCISE, DO OUR HOBBIES, GARDEN, SORT ‘STUFF’ OUT, SPRING CLEAN, WRITE THANK YOU LETTERS, READ BOOKS, CATCHUP WITH FRIENDS ON THE PHONE. WHY NOT LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE ONLINE!
  • U IS FOR UTILISE – UTILISE YOUR SKILLS TO HELP OTHERS. WHAT CAN YOU DO TO CARE FOR THOSE UNABLE TO GO OUT? SOCIAL INTERACTION ON THE PHONE, SKYPE OR FACETIME.
  • HOW ABOUT WRITING YOUR LIFE STORY? OR THAT NOVEL YOU ALWAYS DREAMED OF WRITING!

STAYING FIT IS CRUCIAL DESIGN YOUR OWN WORKOUT:

  • USE YOUR BOTTOM STAIR AS A STEP AND STEP UP AND DOWN 10 TIMES WITH EACH LEG.
  • WALK UP AND DOWN STAIRS X 5 OR MARCH WITH KNEES HIGH X 120 IF YOU DON’T HAVE STAIRS
  • STAND UP AND SIT DOWN FROM A DINING CHAIR X 20
  • STAND BEHIND A DINING CHAIR AND LIFT ALTERNATE STRAIGHT LEGS BEHIND YOU X 20
  • DO 20 SQUATS – KNEES OVER TOES – CHEST AND HEAD UP.
  • DO 10 ABCURLS
  • TRY PRESS UPS. DO AS MANY AS YOU CAN AND BE AMAZED THAT TOMORROW YOU WILL BE ABLE TO DO MORE!
  • TRY BICEP CURLS WITH A TIN OF BAKED BEANS IN EACH HAND.

REPEAT THIS WORKOUT EVERY DAY TO SEE A REAL DIFFERENCE IN YOUR FITNESS AND MENTAL WELLBEING.
