As we head into another lockdown period many of us are worried about keeping ourselves fit and healthy. In the Spring it seemed easier as the weather was kind and we could get outside to do lots of walking. However, with shorter days, it means that evening walks are out. I have been getting up so early to walk the dogs at 6.30am but I can’t say it’s much fun as it is often raining. So in order to keep ourselves fit and healthy we have turned to Maddy, a yoga teacher & gut health adviser, to give us a November Lockdown Health challenge with an exclusive discount for our readers.
Just remember that what concerns experts is not just the creeping pounds that are accumulating on waistlines during these lockdown periods, but also an alarming loss of muscle. “Physical activity is such a potent stimulus for muscle growth that when it is limited or withdrawn, the result can be catastrophic for our muscles,” says Richard Kirwan, a researcher in the school of biological and environmental sciences at Liverpool John Moores University.
As you know Grace and I are great fans of Yoga and my Yoga teacher, Maddy produced a 15 minute yoga routine for everyone to do in the last lockdown which was very popular. See below for the first of these 3 videos.
I have also written about the Synergy Gut Cleanse programme that Maddy advises on as well. (Read my detailed post on this programme HERE).
During the last lockdown I did the Synergy 3 week gut cleanse programme together with 2 Yoga classes a week, via Zoom, with Maddy and I can honestly say it is what got me through lockdown. I felt energised as the weeks progressed. I was also confident that I was doing all that I could to keep my mind and body healthy. A few A&G followers joined up for the gut cleanse programme and were impressed by the results. Other readers joined Maddy’s online Yoga classes and are still with her 6 months later as am I.
We are all back on Zoom and whilst the short days and low temperatures can encourage comfort eating and lazy days I can thoroughly recommend this programme to keep you sane. You will be so happy when you have completed it and December, a normally challenging month for diet and exercise, will seem a breeze.
Maddy is therefore suggesting that we join her for a 3 week programme of gut cleansing and yoga at a special discounted price to A&G followers. Read her message below & join up for her November Lockdown Health Challenge….
NOVEMBER LOCKDOWN HEALTH CHALLENGE ….turn your home into your very own Wellness Retreat.
So another Lockdown in the UK looms. But here’s a thought 🤔 How about making November, all about wellness, not illness, so you can greet December in great shape.
Lockdown One, seemed to be fuelled by alcohol and an abundance of high calorie ‘treat’ foods. Many of us are still carrying the extra pounds gained!! How about doing the reverse in Lockdown 2? Healthy living.
