Staying heathy in LOCKDOWN

As tempting as it is to stay indoors in my pjs, I do aim to get out walking briskly everyday..

It’s tempting to eat lots of sugary snacks to give my mood a boost and feel comforted… But I stick to my low sugar diet to balance my blood sugar and keep my immune system robust..

Hitting the bottle would be nice but I know alcohol doesn’t suit me… I advise limiting consumption to the Government’s recommended allowance of 14 units weekly. It’s high in sugar and alcohol puts extra strain on the liver..

I’m tempted to stay up into the wee small hours watching films but I stick to my bedtime regime to ensure I get enough sleep. Sleep is when our bodies get chance to heal damage done throughout the day. We do need on average 8 hours daily..

I don’t drink caffeine anymore and adore Redbush tea instead. I advise reducing caffeine to everyone to help your body cope with stress..

A bit about myself – I am a fully qualified Naturopathic Nutritional Advisor, Life Coach and Aromatherapist from Sutton Coldfield with a passion for living healthily and sharing my knowledge. After having Chronic Fatigue Syndrome for over 13 years, I understand the value of eating healthily and have changed my diet to meet the needs of my illness. I am now caffeine free, alcohol free, I eat a low-sugar diet, and I’m passionate about eating fresh, natural foods packed full of local and seasonal vegetables. I love to cook, make preserves, try new recipes and spend time on my allotment where I grow organic fruit and vegetables which I feed to my hungry husband and teenage son. I have a passion for walking and enjoying the great outdoors and being as active as I can.
