I believe that most of us (probably everyone) are happy to see the back end of 2020. Personally, it has not been all bad as we welcomed our third grandson on my birthday on December 9th.
And we managed to get through the various restrictions including the FIRST LOCKDOWN without too much difficulty. We are in the privileged situation of being retired and live in a lovely seaside location with plenty of places to walk.
Of course, we missed seeing our family and friends. And like everyone else we missed out on family events, weddings, holidays but we zoomed to beat the band and facetimed too. I even wrote a POST on what we did to get us through it.
I realise that many people lost loved ones and were unable to have the support of family and friends. Others have lost jobs and are worried for the future. So, I consider myself fortunate.
And here we are in 2021 in another lockdown in Ireland with even worse statistics than we had back last March. It is difficult to stay positive, but stay positive we must.
So for my first post of 2021, I am going to remind you to:
LOOK AFTER YOUR HEALTH
I walk daily, use some weights a few times a week and do some yoga. Not all on the same day. And the yoga is very basic and only for ten minutes or so.
We try to eat fish twice a week and I could be a vegetarian, but Graham loves meat. We did over-indulge at Christmas on the sweet things so I need to get back to my usual routine.
TRY TO GET QUALITY SLEEP
If I am worried about anything I tend to find it difficult to get to sleep or else I wake at about 3 and fall back to sleep at 6. I have been taking Lumity Supplements and they definitely helped as well as giving me incredibly strong nails.
Unless you have been hiding under a stone, you will know that there is huge evidence that Vitamin D could help to prevent you getting Covid.
And Zinc too.
Graham and I often joke that we are busier now than when we worked. Helping out with our grandchildren is both a pleasure and a privilege. But also tiring. We need plenty of energy to keep up with them.
And we play golf when not in lockdown and Graham also plays tennis and sails. But, we also read a lot and I have posted about my favourite BOOKS and the excellent TELLY we have watched and I will be sharing more soon. Below you can see one of my top books last year and a television series such as ‘Call The Midwife’ I highly recommend.
Wash your hands.
Use sanitiser if out in supermarkets etc.
And wear a mask.
HAPPY NEW YEAR.
Thank you for reading and supporting my little blog. I will continue to do more of the same and share my top beauty products and beauty treatments. There will be some fashion, if I ever get out of my leisure wear and lots more on health and fitness.
This too will pass.
