Welcome – June 2021

In this issue of Natural Lifestyle, we bring you our annual holiday health feature. Usually packed full of advice about how to keep you and the family well during your summer holiday, this year, our advice is a little different as the lingering effects of the Coronavirus pandemic are felt. This year, jetting abroad may be less common, and instead, many people will be choosing to stay in the UK for their summer break – but that doesn’t mean your summer health should be any less of a consideration.

In fact, as our experts explain on page 16, your health may actually need some extra attention this summer as we emerge from such a difficult period. For one, people have put on weight during the pandemic, and may have been eating less healthily, meaning they will be in need of a nutrient boost. We’ve also been less active, and not seen so much of the outdoors, so you are likely to be low in vitamin D. And that’s before we factor in the toll the pandemic and resulting lockdowns have had on many people’s mental health. 

As the saying goes, health is wealth, and giving your wellbeing a little focus at this time will pay dividends, as will ensuring you allow yourself some self-care too. After what has been a very long winter, made worse by lockdowns, we come back to the importance of looking after yourself, mentally and physically. Self-care is unique to each and every one of us, and finding what works for you, what brings you comfort, peace and happiness, is so important to your wellbeing. Ideally, this will include being in the outdoors, doing some kind of exercise, and taking some time out just for you. Importantly, self-care should not be seen as a luxury but as a necessity. 

Eating well is also important (and for many, cooking is a relaxing mode of self-care), and in this issue, we have a great selection of good-for-you recipes from the Medicinal Chef, Dale Pinnock – no reason not to eat well and feel good – which you can find on page 32. And don’t forget, we also have a fantastic selection of giveaways – you can find this month’s on page 31 and head over to mynaturallifestyle.co.uk/giveaways to enter.
