November 2020 issue

For all of us, 2020 is a year we won’t forget in a hurry. In fact, it is likely one that most of us will look forward to seeing the back of and would not want to see a repeat of again.

Who could ever have imagined that a novel virus would sweep through the world, seeing vast parts of our economies, indeed, our lives, shut down without much of a warning? That initial lockdown took place eight months ago and despite having had some restrictions lifted during the summer, we are now seeing the evidence of the long-warned about second wave of the pandemic as we head into winter.

But we should remember some things are different this time round; for one, we know that we can adapt, we did back in March when we were first locked down. We also know the collective power of everyone doing their bit has an impact, we have seen it for ourselves. And our incredible community of medical experts and researchers know so much more about the virus now than they did in those early days. The reason for making these points is that at Natural Lifestyle, we truly believe in trying to take the positives and to look ahead with encouragement to a time when our lives are a little more normal.


So, here are some of the team’s positive thoughts:
• We have more time – we’re all busy people in our modern world, and if you look back to before Covid-19, many of us felt frazzled and unable to get our daily tasks done. Now, we are forced to do less, life is slower, and for many, there is no commute while you work at home. Enjoy this time, whether in your own company or with family – it won’t last forever, and life will become busy again.
• We value things more – many people report taking pleasures in the simple things in life, such as a walk in nature, seeing family (where restrictions allow), getting in the kitchen (banana bread anyone?), and not wasting time and money on things we don’t need. Life really can be simply lived.
• We have the power – the UK’s collective efforts earlier this year resulted in cases of Coronavirus falling and restrictions being loosened. That was the power of everyone doing their bit, following the rules (whether you agree with them or not), maintaining social distancing, washing your hands and wearing a face mask. This people power made a difference then and it will make a difference now – that is an important positive to note.
• Care for yourself – being in the best physical and mental health possible is the most important step to take to get through winter. Make sure your immune system is strong, top up your vitamin D, stay fit, try to lose weight if you have piled on the pounds, and be sure to care for your mental health. By being in the best of health, your body can better defend itself against infection.

And don’t forget, Natural Lifestyle is always here to support you with the best health advice, and each month, you can pick up your copy in your local health food store, or you can read it online at mynaturallifestyle.co.uk.
