Welcome – April 2021

It’s almost incomprehensible to think that a whole year has now passed since the fabric of our lives changed immeasurably. It was a year ago that we were plunged into a national lockdown, that schools closed, shops shut, and we were unable to see friends and family.

Through the course of the last year, we have been through many trials and tribulations, both mentally and physically, and there isn’t a person who won’t have been affected in some way, whether directly by the virus, or by one of the many knock-on effects of the virus, whether it’s physically in that you may have put on weight, lost some fitness, or your diet has been less than healthy, or it could be in relation to your mental health and to your feelings of isolation.

Of course, we now have a roadmap out of this, and all being well, life will resemble something much more normal for us all by the summer. But we must also remember that the legacy of Covid-19 will remain with many of us for some time and so being kind to both ourselves and to others is really important; moving out of lockdown – as it was to move into it – will be an adjustment for everyone, and there is no right or wrong way to approach it. But we would always suggest keeping your health and wellbeing in front of mind when making adjustments; are you making sure you’re eating plenty of fruit and veg and easing off the processed food? Are you cutting back on your alcohol consumption, which may have risen during lockdown? Are you making sure you’re getting active in some way, ideally outdoors, to keep your mind and body healthy?

All of these are our individual choices to make, but such healthy choices do play a critical role in so many facets of your life, and in this issue of Natural Lifestyle, we have two different health areas which can be positively affected by your nutrition and lifestyle. On page 24, we discuss diabetes and the crucial role your diet plays in cutting risk. And, as the pollen arrives, we highlight on page 16 how you can help avoid the worst of the hay fever season.
