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.

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.

Breathing long-term

Life can bring many challenges and coping with a long-term illness can seem to affect every part of your life. Managing and self-management is the key to improving your well-being and coping with flare-ups and challenges.

Oxygen therapy is one major part to this and understanding the treatment and how it works will help you. Many people will feel some anxiety towards using medical oxygen long-term. We all need oxygen as this is our ‘fuel’ and if there is a lack of oxygen in the blood oxygen therapy is needed to keep the body functioning.
If there is a chronic lack of oxygen this can lead to fatigue, problems with memory and concentration or swelling of the legs amongst other complications.
Medical oxygen helps to keep your organs functioning sufficiently and maintain blood oxygen levels to what is needed for you to maintain a normal life.
Oxygen therapy is beneficial long-term, some may need it for 15 hours a day or whilst sleeping but you will feel the effects long-term to help you feel less tired, more movement even with exercising and better sleep.
