Been off social media for the last few weeks and still will be,  until I finish the final edit of my first novel which I started last year.
My current office is in the garden, wearing noise cancelling headphones  ( noisy neighbours, crying kids, and builders and building works everywhere) .

These are my video clip edits of the sights and sounds of mother nature that have helped my mental wellness and brought me joy over this last week of my morning walks.

#tbt How strange it seems now that being in the middle of a crowd in a field at an IoW music festival was the normal

How strange it seems now that being in the middle of a crowd in a field at an IoW music festival was the normal.
.
Our new normal changes daily.
.
We have to be positive and live in the moment - not looking further ahead than tomorrow, creating our new normal with at least one planned activity a day to look forward to - apart from your one daily walk/exercise outdoors.
.
You could make time to:
Phone or video chat to someone living on their own.
Make a cake - however bad. 
Try an online fitness class.
Have a dance in the kitchen 
Get dressed 
or just do a meditation.
It gives a purpose and structure to the day.and helps your mental wellness.
Stay safe and well

Found my perfect spot at home to do more ‘live’ chats

Found my perfect spot at home to do more 'live' chats.
.
Will do another chat , Q&A towards the end of the week with Nesse
@nesseinlondon (Fitness/nutrition/sarcasm) 
in advance of our joint class on Monday. .
The class will be aimed at all ages young and old- she is young and I am old. 
.
Whilst Nesse instructs and demos, I will be sharing the class with her onscreen as her pupil - adapting some of the exercises for those who are older or less fit. .
We will also be focussing on re-aligning our posture and spinal mobility from so many hours spent sitting in front of screens.
.
Nesse is a great instructor and irreverant and funny with her chat 
Hope you can join us.
The next class is 10am Monday morning.
Please do let us know if there's another time of the day you would prefer. 
Maybe evening - 6pm - better for you? .
The website to book in for the next zoom class is at:

At 10am tomorrow- wednesday
 @nesseinlondon 
And I will be doing an Instagram 'live'  chat together.
.
The pics are Nesse left and top right, 
and bottom right- me

Nesse is a brilliant pilates and barre teacher.
I am 65 and try to keep myself fit and healthy.
.
In life before Covid19 I spoke on radio, TV and in schools and organisations on mental wellness, social media, positive body image, first impressions and healthy eating (I have a nutrition diploma) health, beauty, lifechange and personal image and style. (I was a celebrity stylist for A list stars for 30 years) .
.

Nesse and I are going to be chatting together at 10am tomorrow - 
and answering your questions on any subjects you ask us:
From menopause to men, 
Healthy diet or current lifestyle dilemmas
And
pilates to positivity.
... and more.. .
before Nesse and I host a Zoom fun Pilates class the following Monday for anyone who is age 50 plus and would still like to keep fit. .
Look forward to 10am tomorrow.
A date for your diaries.
