#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:

Cooking and eating healthily is important

Cooking and eating healthily is important.
when you're in Corona lock-down or self-isolation. 
Our grandparents were clever to never waste any food.  They had to be.  They were rationed. We are used to abundance so I'm going to be demonstrating my ways of using leftovers for tasty recipes that could stretch across a week. 
Video clip is a Sunday roast- chicken, baked potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic. 
Photos and are a chicken, leek and onion pie with the remainder of the roast potatoes sliced on top and then baked in the oven topped with seeds and breadcrumbs (that fell off my sourdough loaf when I sliced it) and olive oil on top.
Video chicken stock from all the meat and veg remains and additional herbs and leeks and onions and green vegetable water.
Healthy eating helps immunity. .

When you want to become the healthiest version of yourself, especially in these flu-ridden times- then an appointment with the completely brilliant and empathetic nutritionist and Doctor- Dr Vidhi @smilingvidhi @johnbellandcroyden Is the way to go

When you want to become the healthiest version of yourself, especially in these flu-ridden times- then an appointment with the completely brilliant and empathetic nutritionist and Doctor- Dr Vidhi @smilingvidhi @johnbellandcroyden 
Is the way to go.
I cannot recommend her more highly. 
I've just had my second appointment with her.
.
She is not only a Western medicine doctor but also a homeopathic one as well as an Ayurverdic one. So she can treat you on so many levels.
.
Dr Vidhi also uses an EIS sensor analyser machine which passes a low voltage electrical current through the tissue fluid that surrounds cells tissues and organs whilst also working as an ECG electrocardiogram checking your heart. .
This machine does not give actual blood and hormone analysis figures- but it does give indications via graphs of where your specific problems may or may not lie.
.
It reads your Interstitial fluid minerals including Phosphorous, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium and iron.
.
It reads 12 hormones including thyroid and cortisol and insulin . .
Your acid/alkaline balance. .
Your biochemistry which includes your triglycerides- fats in the body ( which include HDL - good cholesterol) and LDL and kidney health and glucose or sugar found in the body.
.
Also oxidative stress and a whole organ/ systems analysis from cardiovascular to digestive,, endocrine, immune function, neurolgical, neuromuscular, respiratory and body composition.
.
It even checks for cancer markers.
.
Totally impressive. Cannot recommend Dr Viddhi more highly. She has helped me with other recent health and digestive issues better than any other doctor, consultant, or gastroenterologist has managed.
.
The nutrijuvenate clinic with Dr Vidhi costs £180. .
