Relax……It’s National Relaxation Day (Yes, it really is!)

Written by Sabi Phagura on . Posted in Health, Lifestyle and Beauty

You’d think with Covid-19 kicking in this year and having to stay at home and do nothing, we would all be a little relaxed. Wrong! In fact, we have been the opposite and more stressed than ever. Add to that feeling the pressure of having to ‘do more’ during the lockdown, such as keeping fit, baking, learning a new skill, relaxation has been relegated to the bottom of the pile of the things we need to do.

There is something to be said about fitness classes. Survey figures from EMD UK estimate that 4.86 million in England alone regularly partake in group exercise classes.

If you drank a lot during the lockdown, you weren’t the only one. As soon as Boris Johnson announced lockdown, a lot of people poured themselves a large glass of wine and popped their feet up. They didn’t give it a second thought. Nor the next night or the next.

If your summer body fell down the wayside during the total lockdown, don’t fret. Not all is lost. We still have at least two months of summer left at least to get you back on track. I often get emails showcasing the latest low calorie, low-fat product but I’m not often interested. I tend to prefer eating whole foods and making the majority of my food from scratch. But when it comes to building a salad, I must admit I struggle with conjuring up a good dressing recipe. So often end up using the same blend of balsamic vinegar and olive oil.

The Norfolk Coastal Path and Beyond – Part Three – Blakeney, Cley-next-to-sea and Mundesley

Too early to check into my next place of rest, I found myself driving back to the coastline and towards Blakeney. I was drawn to this pretty coastal village after it came up in conversations with the local folk for being home to some amazing wildlife, seals and terns. Blakeney Point is home to England’s largest Grey Seal colony and one of the best ways to get close to the wildlife here is to book a trip on one of the locally operated ferry trips departing from Morston Quay. Due to Covid-19, the seal trips are running at reduced capacity and it’s not possible to walk to see the seals.
