Life after covid…

Fatigue, shortness of breath, pressure in the chest, headaches and muscle pain have been surveyed as the most common symptoms after coronavirus.

“More than 9 in 10 people even indicate that they have problems with simple daily activities”.(Longfonds and CIRO knowledge center)

It seems that there is a large amount of people that may be going unheard or untreated especially if not officially diagnosed with Covid-19. People still need care and advice after coronavirus. Many who may not have been ill previously will be scared, have questions and be in a very scary or anxious unknowing if not helped.

According to the study by Longfords the average age was 53 with many healthy prior to the virus. Many complained about not be able to walk properly and certainly being unable to exercise.

Breathe easy at home

oxygen at home

For those who need medical oxygen at home this can seem daunting. Home oxygen is needed for those who have low oxygen levels and having this supply can help those with respiratory illnesses.

For some this may be a relatively new requirement especially if you have been in hospital with coronavirus and on your after-care plan you still require extra help with oxygen to improve your condition and daily life.

Oxygen at home or oxygen therapy increases the oxygen levels in your blood flow and can help with daily activities all based upon what your doctor has required necessary.

It can seem very scary but this vital source of medical equipment not only will help you breathe but will enable you to be able to move around, do daily exercise and even (when we can) venture on holiday. You do not have to miss out.

The team at OxygenWorldwide have over 20 years experience and can assist, provide and be available for your oxygen needs. Whether you require oxygen therapy at home or abroad – contact our team which operates across Europe and worldwide.

Tips to help stop Covid anxiety

 road to help anxiety

There has been a mixed amount of emotions this year as we approach the end of 2020. People have never felt so much with stress, worry, anxiety and also having to abide by rules and regulations regularly changing. As we look ahead and begin to see an end to Covid-19 in terms of going back to a ‘normal way of life’ whatever that may be. For those who deal with not only a daily struggle having this anxiety on top cannot be avoided. But with the year drawing to a close it is as important an ever to make sure you handle these emotions correctly. Here are a few top tips to help with anxiety especially as coronavirus has been a worldwide pandemic all year – much longer than anyone could have imagined or be prepared for.

  1. Sounds obvious but talking about your worries is good! Many of us feel like we don’t want to pester others close to us with our thoughts or feelings. Most of the time it also helps the person you are talking to too and aids to feeling calm, voicing your worries and understanding the feelings. It’s good to talk or even write to someone close.
  2. Ignore scare-mongering – There is always a lot of media hype, articles or online sites that may not be factual. Always stick to recommended advice from websites and Channels that do not add to your feelings. Fact is what is needed when something so big affects your life. It also stops you from being overwhelmed or even confused.#
  3. Focus on today – it is true that when you may be anxious it is easier to manage when you focus on the right here and right now. Do not worry about the what if’s or tomorrow. Be strong and wake up feeling strong and in control of what today will bring.

It may feel like a long road but anxiety can be managed and you can be in control. Focus on what works and is right for you. With coronavirus and Covid-19 affecting everyone in every country it is a major factor that we need to address especially when dealing with a huge range of other day to day issues. Remember your loved ones and people close to you and that you are strong enough.

3 ways to stay positive during lockdown

Being positive during Covid-19

Covid-19 is taking over our lives and while we all try to stay home and save lives it can be difficult to remain positive with all the negativity in the media or our thoughts.

Here are some 3 positive things you can do to give yourself the mental boost you need whilst being indoors and at home especially when you already are vulnerable or sick.

  1. Create a mood board or bucket list
    Zone in on your hobbies, interest, travels and plans for your future. Put all your ideas on paper, in a scrap book, list in your phone or even type up on the computer. You can be as creative as you wish but ultimately focus on what you are going to do or go to or start once this is all over!
  2. Stay hydrated It is important to remember to stay topped up with fluids and we may forget as not moving around as much. Your body still needs to be kept from dehydration as this can lead to bad skin, IBS flare up to headaches and tiredness to name a few. The NHS and The European Food Safety Authority state, “Women should drink about 1.6 litres of fluid and men should drink about 2.0 litres of fluid per day”.
  3. Video call your loved ones regularly Make sure you are keeping in touch with your friends, family or even your groups such as your local club or hobby group. You can set up virtual meet-ups, virtual drink nights to give a bit of fun to your week and see some friendly faces. Do not be scared to use video software as once you have mastered how it works it really makes you feel as if you are with all those friendly faces in the room and makes you feel really happy and in-touch with the outside world.

Don’t forget you can download all the best tips of what to do when at home whilst in quarantine. FREE guide over on our website today at oxygenworldwide.com.
