Welcome – May 2021

April 12, a day that will be etched in our memory for some time to come, for it was the day we could begin to feel a sense of normality returning to our lives. It was one of a number of crucial steps in our roadmap out of lockdown, but the fact we could now visit all non-essential shops, not to mention cafes and pubs outdoors, certainly offered us some hope that we were one step closer to that so commonly used phrase, ‘the new normal’. 

But it’s so important that during this time of change, we are also kind to ourselves in how we adjust; having been under lockdown rules for so many months, it’s understandable you may have become accustomed to this new way of living, and therefore, may be feeling certain anxieties about being out and about again – and that’s OK. The advice from the experts is to pace yourself, ease yourself back in to socialising gradually, and don’t feel pressure to do everything all at once, especially if you don’t feel comfortable. You must also be sure to talk to people around you about your worries and try to vary your routine so you slowly get used to the changes.

And let’s not forget that social distancing and mask wearing will remain in place for some time to come, and that we all have a responsibility to look after our own health; Coronavirus is still going to be here, even when the majority of Brits are vaccinated, and while it offers us an element of assurance and protection, you being in the best health possible remains hugely important; a strong focus on your immune system, a balanced diet, lots of colourful fruit and veg, plenty of water and easing off on your alcohol intake are all important steps. And sleep is also crucial, both for your physical and mental wellbeing.

And one final word on a slow return to normality; while non-essential shops reponing is a fantastic step forward, we must say a heartfelt thank you to our wonderful independent health food stores, which stayed open throughout the pandemic, helping support our health and wellbeing with products, advice and a warm smile. Our independent health food stores have worked tirelessly for many months to serve us in the most difficult of times, and we hope you continue to support them as we move forward.
