September 2020 issue

As I write this, the children are soon due to return to school, life is slowly reopening, and we don’t seem to be having trouble buying flour or toilet roll – is this a sure sign that life is gradually returning to some kind of normality?

The ‘new normal’ is a phrase that has been overused in recent times as we got to grips with the many effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, but in truth, it couldn’t be a more accurate term. Life has changed, how we live our lives, the freedoms that we usually enjoy, how and when we socialise with friends and family, how we shop and where we go on holiday are all things we perhaps took for granted prior to the pandemic.

Of course, we will eventually be able to get back to these, and indeed, it is important for our physical and mental wellbeing, not to mention the economy, that we do return to normality. But perhaps now is the time to reflect on the facets we want to retain which were forced upon us during lockdown.

For many, the slower pace of life has been a revelation in a pre-Covid world, in which
many of us operated 100 miles an hour, all the time, often eating on the go and not allowing ourselves to indulge in ‘me time’. But allowing yourself time for peace and calm, to nourish your mind and body in whatever way suits you, is absolutely crucial to maintain wellbeing.

This pandemic has also shone a light on the things we must be grateful for, and what we maybe took for granted before – and I hope that this feeling remains. While this can sound clichéd to say, it is so true that you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone and this really rings true when you think about the ability to see your loved ones.

Here at Natural Lifestyle magazine, we are dedicated to supporting and educating our readers in ways they can improve their health and wellbeing and a huge part of what we do is to drive people into health food stores. And there is good reason for this; staff in your local independent store will be able to offer great advice, they are likely to have qualified staff in store to do so, and they will have a fantastic product range. And, hugely importantly, it was health food stores that remained open on the high street at the height of the pandemic to bring you the essential health and food items you needed. During this pandemic, our independent health food stores have proved just how valuable a resource they are – and long may they thrive in the future.
