Adaptive Stress deserves exploration and Three is my Magic Number.

Adaptive Stress deserves exploration and Three is my Magic Number.

Adaptive stress can make or break us. Today, we’ll look at 3 low cost strategies to better deal with adaptive stress. I believe these 3 strategies help me look younger than I am. I aim to do them at least a few times a week . Recently, I was visited by a physiotherapist who specialises in walking. I believe she gives talks about fall prevention to hospitals and social centres for the elderly. How lucky am I? Her workplace is...

This is belonging

This post looks at belonging incorporating the armed forces’ relatively recent advertising campaign. There are lots of things that can give us that sense of belonging that don’t come along with the chance of becoming a killer or a casualty. Becoming part of any relatively select club can also give a feeling of belonging? My relatively select club, as most readers know is the MS Club. We catch up with familiar faces on...

I think my inner pessimist shines through when I act as if...

I feel good in this environment. Views like this lift my spirits and heart. Future post on the science behind the beneficial effects of nature to follow soon....

Risk:Reward?

It’s a good idea to try and keep aware of all the aspects of the treatments we’re choosing to take; water soluble vitamins (like vit C and some Bvits) don’t carry much risk as the body will get rid of any extra the next time you go to the toilet. The ‘oily’ vitamins (vit A,D,E and K)  also known as the sunshine vitamins) do carry a greater risk of toxicity as the body stores what it doesn’t need in...

Avenues of MS research everywhere!

Avenues of MS research everywhere!

My own research into increasing variety of movement. New news, apparently… not the same old news! Quite often there’s not much to report in MS research or what there is to report is all the same shape – either ineffective or carries the potential of life threatening side effects but… there appear to be a handful of avenues opening up! A family friend from the US sent me this link last week the way concerned...
