We all know what we must do now – Stay at Home & Save Lives.
This simple task requires strength, commitment and patience.
At Performance Physiotherapy we want to make it our priority to help with your health and wellbeing at home. Our new series, ‘Stronger at home’, is directly aimed at this. As families with children, young people, parents and grandparents, we are all in this together.
To help with your physical and mental health and wellbeing, we are going to post a series of tips and videos that can be shared amongst family and friends so you ALL can stay ‘Stronger at Home’
Your first crucial step is to make a PLAN! Winston Churchill said ‘He who fails to plan is planning to fail’ which we cannot agree with more.
What do we mean by that?
If you haven’t done this already, try this tonight…Take out your diary or write down Monday to Sunday on a piece of paper. Now we want you to add 5 sessions of 30 mins of exercise a week, (British Medical Journal guidelines of 150 mins weekly), this can help in a multitude of ways and build the immune system, which is now and always very important.
We also want you to Include at least 3, 20-minute sessions of either meditation or a relaxing task such as music or reading. Now, you need to include the EXACT times you are going to do this and on which days. If you’ve got this far… you’re already halfway there! Make sure you tell as many people as you can about this so they can help hold you to it.
You can include some of these sessions with family such as bike riding, walking, online exercise sessions or weighted workouts. Likewise, it’s good to have a few sessions on your own so that you can challenge yourself and can be specific.
Watch this space as we will be regularly sharing tips, videos, resources as we extend our ‘Stronger at Home’ series.
And remember, no plans are set in stone. If something doesn’t work for you, you can adapt the plan and improve.
Good luck and have fun!
