Walk 4 Health session.

Exercise and mental health.

I am now well into my GP prescribed fitness regime under the PARiS scheme. Last Monday, I was invited to an EXTEND fitness session by my Walk 4 Health leader, Avril. I thought it was great….chair exercises, routines to music to benefit balance, movement, brain fitness and fine muscle development…..just the kind of activity to complement my gym workouts and walking. There is also a social benefit in that I’ve met an old friend and met some new friends over tea, biscuit and a chat afterwards. So with my coffee morning and walk on Tuesday morning, I’m managing to get out and socialise instead of spending all my time on this laptop by my self! I hope it is stimulating all those good brain hormones to swish around and make me feel more settled.
DH has mentioned going on holiday in the caravan because we have been trapped at home by all the renovations that are or are taking a long time to happen. This makes me feel slightly unsafe and worried….I know we need to get away for a while but I hate going on holiday and being away from home….thinking about it now is making me feel rather sick…..I don’t know why…it just does. Ever since I was a child, I’ve felt sick the night before or tried to make some excuse not to go…it all came to a head last September when I actually refused to go. You can imagine how upset DH was, especially as we had had a lovely holiday in Ravenglass earlier on in the summer. Well, we just didn’t go and of course this lead to months of depression until the past couple of months when I’ve improved a lot.
Let’s hope the experience of going out and meeting people at last, will help me to be more rational about the holiday….if I can get there I’m usually OK…just sometimes a bit of claustrophobia or being nervous about being in a crowd! If anyone reading this has any ideas how I can cope, please put your ideas in the comments…I will be glad to receive them and will reply to you. Thank you so much if you’ve read so far. Irene xx
