w/c 4th May 2020
I hope this bulletin finds you safe and well. With a week of better weather, hopefully your spirits have been lifted again. I've been working hard with Joe Wicks every morning and it is starting to feel good, rather than just painful. Joe calls himself "Captain Serotonin." A week ago I had some very different names for him, but I can now understand what he means by this. Physical exercise definitely makes you feel better and more able to cope with the challenges around you. If you haven't already had a go at one of his 9am workouts, why not give one a go this week?
Something else that really helps me to stay positive is seeing all the fabulous things you are doing at home. Let's take a look at some of this week's superstars......
