Can someone list best ways to keep active during this grey, cold weather please, only missed one day of walking dog, but walks are short now due to said weather, thanks in advance.
List of positive activities please? - Positive Wellbein...
Positive Wellbeing During Self-Isolation
Hit (high intensity training) training is very good as you need very little time to do it. What you do is really power for around 20 to 30 seconds ie. jumping Jack's, running on the spot, having a 30 second rest and do it again. Do this for a total of around 20 minutes. Yiu need to warm up first and then do stretches when you've finished the exercises.
We've got very wet and windy weather forecast for the next few days here so I'll be following my Joe Wicks 15 minute workout DVD.
All the best.👍🌈😊
How do you manage HIIT with COPD I only have moderate and I can’t manage it with my breathing
Sorry but I would think you wouldn't be able to manage it with COPD🤔 The post didn't mention COPD, I would have no way mentioned HIIT if it had.
I'm so sorry you can't manage it, I really feel for you.

Some very good ideas there, thanks
Since the first lockdown., I have written recipes two hundred so far. I enjoy experimenting with different ingredients. It keeps me occupied most of the time, when the weather is warmer we will start walking again. My dog is old and not keen on cold winds and rain. He hates the cold wet snow also.

Up skill yourself
I'm making an effort to keep up with friends and family by phone or email. Normally it would kind of happen automatically with meeting up but as that's not allowed it's taking a conscious effort to keep in touch. Trouble is I get in a bit of a muddle who I've said what to and when and end up repeating myself!
Good for you, thanks for reminding me there are relations and friends I've been meaning to contact since early January. I'm a disgrace!
Me too lol especially on here I'm spending less time on i often chat to too many and is effecting my eyes and sleep😊🙀
I am Ill so I sleep till 10 check here then have brunch.Sit in my recliner for the rest of the day as drugs are putting on the weight.go to the hospital once a week fog a five hour infusion and feel exhausted.The only thing really busy is my tongue!Oh and I do some diamond painting!
Monica45 The 5 hour infusion sounds awful. Can you walk at all?, and what is diamond painting-sounds lovely
