Lorn Healthy Options weekly health tip

Want to read more?

At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.

We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a  subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device.  In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).

Can you practice some self-care?

Perhaps you can spend some time thinking about where you want to be once lockdown eases in a couple of months.

Can you take advantage of the improvement in weather to get outside more and work on your fitness level?

If you have suffered a recent dip in your enthusiasm towards maintaining a healthy diet and activity rate you are not alone.  It’s been a long cold winter, coupled with significant lockdown fatigue leaving many struggling to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Luckily spring is nearly here and hopefully an improvement in weather along with the fantastic vaccine roll out will allow us some well-deserved freedom in early summer.

Let’s make sure we are in the best health possible when lockdown eases by taking responsibility for our own health now.

Obesity attributed deaths in the UK far outstrip those of even this pandemic and perhaps the greatest gratitude we can show our under fire NHS is to reduce our individual risk of developing long-term health conditions by practising some self-care.

You can watch useful videos that can support your self-care on www.lornhealthyoptions.co.uk/free-resources
