Zoom classes week beginning 22 February, vaccinations and Ruby Wax.

More than 17 million people in the UK have had at least one dose of the Covid 19 vaccine. The vaccination programme is going really well in the UK especially here in the north of England. I have even booked some of you in at Preston Grasshoppers although you might not have recognised me at first behind my mask! Boris Johnson is expected to lay out plans for the easing of lockdown tomorrow Monday 22 February. Looking at press reports there is cautious optimism in the air that things might start to become less restricted by April – but we have been here before so we shall see.

Relaxation, Meditation and Mindfulness Instructor
Due to having more time during lockdown I have now qualified as a Relaxation, Meditation and Mindfulness Instructor. This is something I have wanted to do for many years as I use relaxarion exercises and mindfulness to help me with my type of MS and the trauma of losing my son Yianni. As a treat for myself I am also doing a 6 week course with Ruby Wax on MIndfulness (along with a few hundred other people). Ruby has a masters’s degree from Oxford in mindfulness based cognitive therapy. She has found mindfulness has really helped her and she is certainly entertaining! I think we have all experienced pressures on our mental wellbeing over the last 12 months and found ways to keep ourselves as well as possible. Exercise really is one key to keeping well for most of us! 

Collecting your used stamps to raise money for the RNIB
Thanks again for this week’s stamps – Lesley K., O’pen Office, Janet G., Brenda M and others. Christine from Zumba will prepare and send the stamps off to the RNIB to raise much needed funds to support their work. You can send the stamps to me at 11, Cedarwood Drive Leyland PR25 1HN and I will forward them to Christine.
