Hi all
Paul Monck

Hello to all!
Annabelle Price
13:59
Very soggy in Cheltenham isn't it :( I'm making a slow cooker recipe whilst listening!
Eleanor Lloyd Jones
14:06
Yes am looking forward to picking up lots of hints and tips for winter wellbeing
alison dawesa
16:45
Hiya - just had a very heavy shower but sunny again now in Berkshire
Marusa Galic
17:11
we had strong winds and hail here in High Wycombe!
Hazel Tetchner
20:01
hello everyone! Grey and cloudy here in Durham :(
Val Webster
21:46
Little grey in Nunthorpe too.
Jemma Page
22:54
Finding the positive - I popped out at lunchtime to get some daylight and enjoyed seeing the beautiful autumn colours in the trees!
Edward Midson
25:23
Sounds lovely Jemma, we’re moving our running to the start of the day
Baljinder Nizzer
33:37
That's me - I need to get out of the house more
Laura Whitty
33:53
Me too! Stuck in wfh
Marusa Galic
34:06
Difficult to get any daylight when working from an office 9-5 in winter
Hazel Tetchner
34:34
definitely agree with getting outside everyday, really helps when wfh
Lois Kelly
34:48
I use a lightbox for my SAD & it's fab! I put it on while I'm getting ready in the morning & I can feel my batteries charging!
Lois Kelly
35:01
I also get out with the dogs at least twice a day!
Edward Midson
35:03
Great tip!
Jemma Page
35:03
You could schedule in a lunch hour so that nobody can book a meeting with you, then use the time to go for a walk. Even if you just wander round the garden with a cuppa :)
Baljinder Nizzer
35:04
I have just brought one so will see
Hazel Tetchner
35:27
that's exactly what i have done Jemma and i get left alone!
Val Webster
36:03
Jemma I do this and people still put meetings in at this time!!
Jemma Page
36:11
That's good Hazel! It works. Great tip about the light box Lois.
alison dawesa
36:15
That's a good tip - I might even be able to get out for a run at lunchtime which would be better than going in the dark!
Baljinder Nizzer
36:35
I might start to do that
Jemma Page
37:03
@Val, that's a shame - maybe they need to learn from you ;)
Val Webster
37:25
@Jemma I will have to start declining the meetings.
Annabelle Price
37:36
3 bean chilli in the slow cooker right now!
Eleanor Lloyd Jones
37:58
Sounds lovely Annabelle!
Jemma Page
38:11
You can do it @Val, be strong! A few of us in our workplace have started doing that and it does make a nice difference.
Claire Marsland
38:21
Folks - this is my worry. Ive already gained half a stone in lockdown and don't want to put on more
Laura Whitty
38:36
Oh I don’t drink nearly enough! I get up less often at home - thought it would be more
Annabelle Price
39:06
I've also put on over a stone, Claire. Please don't shame yourself. It's been a very difficult time xx
Hazel Tetchner
39:27
@Claire- i was the same but what i have founded useful is tracking my calories on MyFitnessPal and i've been listening to James Smith's podcasts which has helped a ton!
Baljinder Nizzer
39:38
I have green tea, peppermint, or just lemon in hot water helps the water intake especially in this weather
Claire Marsland
39:41
Thanks Annabelle - yes its hard isnt it x
Hazel Tetchner
39:42
but don't beat yourself up, we are all in a difficult situation together!
Helen Colechin
39:59
Good reminder regarding water!
Edward Midson
40:09
Vit D needs green veg to be absorbed properly
Annabelle Price
40:25
I try not to tack calories (just personal preference) but finding a group of people to talk to about it has helped me to stay on track!
Laura Whitty
40:27
Will have to get back in to the lemon in hot water - it’s lovely
Eleanor Lloyd Jones
40:53
I've started adding lime to hot water recently, that's lovely too
Laura Whitty
41:10
Oooh nice tip!
Jemma Page
42:08
The Calm app also has a gratitude reminder.
Edward Midson
42:31
Love the Calm app
Laura Whitty
42:39
Me too
Hazel Tetchner
42:52
i struggle quite a lot with sleep!
Trudy Salandiak
43:05
Sorry am late. I seem to be the only person with improved sleep since working at home
Hazel Tetchner
43:06
tried lavender and all sorts but struggle to drop off.
Laura Whitty
43:07
Didn’t know it had a gratitude reminder - I’ll have a look
Marusa Galic
43:11
I struggle with sleep too!
Marusa Galic
43:24
I drink valerian tea from Pukka
Laura Whitty
43:54
Careful with that around cats though - it’s like cat nip!
Trudy Salandiak
43:54
Valerian always makes me drowsy the next day
Jemma Page
44:07
@Laura, it's in settings then reminders
Laura Whitty
44:18
Thanks @gemma
Laura Whitty
44:39
Oops @jemma!
Jemma Page
44:44
:)
Trudy Salandiak
44:55
Doing things for others is the best mood lifter (as long as your own energy levels are topped up sufficiently)
Val Webster
46:34
@Trudy - totally agree.
Laura Whitty
48:11
Any tips for getting up in the morning when feeling down/sluggish?
Sian Williams
49:26
Just what I was about to ask about motivating myself to get out - I'm very good at making excuses not to.
Trudy Salandiak
49:28
Anyone practice a magic morning routine? Gratitude journal, meditate, 5 minutes of exercise, cold shower. When I can, it's great!
Joanne Tasker
49:33
add it to your to-do list
Annabelle Price
49:58
I can only motivate myself when I'm going somewhere so I go and get a coffee or plan to meet someone
Joanne Tasker
49:59
action 4 happiness is BRILLIANT
alison dawesa
50:19
I try to think about something I am looking forward to doing that day. Also I happen to love breakfast - so that often spurs me to get up and get on so I can enjoy it
Jemma Page
50:28
Agreed, Action 4 Happiness is great. They also have some inspiring webinars.
Charlie Kleboe-Rogers
50:38
This has been really great, mid week blues has been a real killer of motivation for me. I've started to do Couch to 5K and signed up to the Move-tember movement to try motivate myself to go outside more!
Baljinder Nizzer
50:56
love that - refuse the snooze
Joanne Tasker
51:00
OOO move-tember?!
Jemma Page
51:47
Well done @Charlie, good luck with Cto5km, it's so great.
Charlie Kleboe-Rogers
51:49
@Joanne, It's Movember, but I am incapable of growing any form of moustache, so I found out there is also a move-tember that's run by the same charity! The aim os to walk or Run 60K in the month
Charlie Kleboe-Rogers
51:52
Thanks Jemma! :)
Eleanor Lloyd Jones
52:01
I'm keeping a list of positive things I can do over the winter rather than thinking about the things that we can't do this year
Val Webster
52:40
Can we access the posters please - if so where as cannot find on your website. Thank you.
Joanne Tasker
52:49
thanks charlie
Darren Plank
52:54
You can use mindfulness practice for sleep. There are some great videos on youtube
Charlie Kleboe-Rogers
53:15
No bother Joanne!
Libby Jones
53:22
Finding a hobby you can switch off with helps I started doing some art during lockdown. Im not good but she does things that are simple and fun.
Baljinder Nizzer
53:38
@ Eleanor love that Can do attitude
Joanne Tasker
53:43
headspace also have a podcast which is free and is a great thing to use for a daily mediattion practice
Charlie Kleboe-Rogers
53:45
I've found turning the TV off and putting gmy phone down for an hour before bed has been really helpful for improving my sleep too
Trudy Salandiak
53:51
Two litres seems SO much, but great for skin and energy levels
Lois Kelly
54:15
I've been leaving my phone downstairs overnight for the last week & I've been sleeping a lot better!
Baljinder Nizzer
54:15
Digital detox before bed helps with sleep
Charlie Kleboe-Rogers
54:23
@Trudy I agree! I had to make sure I was taking time to stop and drink
Trudy Salandiak
54:45
@Charlie glad am not the only one :-)
Laura Whitty
54:49
Make sure your light box is medically certified - there’s lots on amaxon
Charlie Kleboe-Rogers
54:50
@Lois, th next step for me is to take it out my bedroom completely, I'm glad you're finding success doing this!
Trudy Salandiak
55:08
Daylight bulbs make a difference?
Ros Jiggins
55:45
Very wise re charge phone away from bedroom- digital detox and rest is easier and not tempted to check in middle of night
Edward Midson
56:22
Reframe the darkness as a beautiful thing, and the rain as life giving and essential
Jemma Page
56:49
Love that @Edward
Val Webster
56:58
I am subscribed to the Newsletter - it is great.
Trudy Salandiak
57:36
@Edward much joy to be had from all seasons, you're right
Annabelle Price
59:30
I have a bottle with timings on it which is good for me!
Baljinder Nizzer
59:47
@Annabelle I have one of those too
Trudy Salandiak
01:00:51
Have another webinar sorry, but thanks for your time, good to meet you all x
Rachel Clayton
01:00:51
You can buy a water bottle with times of the day down the side so each hour you drink the amount of water between that hour on the bottle
