New Year – New Lockdown

With all the well wishes and all of the “Happy New Year” messages that came flooding in, full of hope for a better year… I made two promises to myself: Drink more water (juice) and find ways to remain calm.

So far, so good. My ‘promises’ are not ones which can be taken away from me due to a national lockdown – which means no excuses.

I am eating fruit more, drinking less caffeinated, carbonated drinks and I have started doing Tai Chi.

Following along to some YouTube videos and feeling a bit of happiness that I am learning something new, in a time where not much of anything in the world is new, is a nice enough feeling.

Another lockdown brings with it more of the same repetitiveness that we have had since March 2020 – almost 1 full year.

But maybe we can create our own positives. Or at least try to. A little bit of Tai Chi every other day and some positive goals that I am determined to achieve is my own little way of trying to do better.

Hopefully the end is near for this Coronavirus pandemic. Hopefully some time spent doing new things (even from the mundane comfort of home) can help this year be a more positive one.

Vitamins

January was a month of medications. I decided to stick with vitamins C and D and won spectacularly!

I had days where life took over and a vitamin C was missed – however almost every single day of January saw me taking the time to grab some vitamins. And I felt so much better for it.

On an odd occasion where I felt the sniffles approaching – nothing developed. I feel healthier and I feel as though my immunity is slowly improving.

Off to an amazing start this year – 2020 is the year I start taking notice and positively impacting upon it. This year I shall not ignore anything to do with my health and I shall work to ensure that I make the effort required.
