Medical oxygen shortages

5 ways to spread Christmas cheer…

christmas

Christmas has come around so fast this year for everyone. It is time to spread cheer amongst one another hence why we have seen to many people jump onto Christmas planning, decorating so early! It may be the only period on which we can see loved ones.

It is a time of uncertainty still, anxiousness and frustration for many especially those who are separated by countries. It has been a long year for all and it is time to speak a little cheer and have something to look forward to. A few ideas to make Christmas special this year:

1. Make and decorate your own festive wreath, it can be fun to do and there are so many options from traditional festive wreaths to more modern takes

2. Donate to charities instead of sending Christmas cards this year – many are doing this to help support charities at a time when fundraising has been difficult for vital research and support

3. Make sure you call or even better video call your nearest and dearest if you are not planning to be together. A conversation and talking goes a long way when you may be feeling lonely

4. Support local independents – it has been a struggle for many small shops and restaurants to try and stay afloat so this year if you do buy gifts buy local

5. Baking is very therapeutic for many plus after your hard work you get to enjoy a treat or even share with your neighbours! There are many recipes out there to feed your festive spirit from mince pies and Christmas puddings to reindeer cookies, roast dinners and even make your own mulled wine!

3 reasons why oxygen is so important right now…

medical oxygen
  1. Oxygen treats so many conditions –
    Pneumonia plus many other respiratory diseases need medical oxygen to survive. The lack and low oxygen levels that come with these conditions means that the supply and need for medical oxygen is very very important. This affects people who suffer from illnesses such as: COPD, sleep apnea, extreme asthma attacks and more recently COVID-19.
  2. Oxygen is needed for all life on earth including animals – It is not just us humans but all the animals and plants need oxygen to function just as we do. The need for oxygen is for everything around us on Earth from beautiful flowers and trees to the animals in our oceans and on land.
  3. Oxygen helps mountaineers stay alive – The sheer atmosphere that comes with mountain areas across the world and its high elevations means that oxygen is needed to hep breathe and stay alive due to the drop in pressure at such high altitudes.

Seaside staycation or seaside vacation?

Staycations or holistay are trips made within driving distance of where you live. These are great ways to explore your own country and discover destinations without the need to book flights or ferries as part of your trip.

Some people will chose to get away completely and vacate to another country via sea or air travel. Staycations give people the opportunity to discover destinations where they live which sometimes we forget how special they are.

Whether you choose to opt for a staycation or vacation OxygenWorldwide are here to arrange all your oxygen therapy requirements.

Remember to exercise even if still self-isolating at home

The British Lung Foundation have put together this video to demonstrate exercises that help keep your muscles strong. A lot of us have been at home and sitting down more than we are used to. These exercises remind us that we still need to maintain our strength during this challenging time. If you still cannot go out or only for a short period of time and you are getting short of breathe, here are some exercises that help give breathing techniques and also at different levels.

Watch the video and keep your muscles strong.
