Helping Yourself

Boost your immune system and lung function now and stay fitter too:


  •  Make the most of walking or cycling

  •  Check out YouTube for videos - Yoga, Tai Chi, Qigong, Pilates - whatever you enjoy

  • There are lots of qigong videos and docs on this site too. If the chest and diaphragm move freely, covid symptoms can be greatly relieved. 

  • Qigong also calms the mind and strengthens the immune system, so you've nothing to lose

Eat well


Breathe Properly

  •  Breathing can profoundly affect your mood, blood pressure, heart health and oxygen supply to tissues and brain

  •  Get into the habit of nose breathing. Keep your mouth closed whenever you remember

  •  Allow your breath to slow and focus on your abdomen rather than your chest

  •  If you are anxious or stressed, breathe out slowly and sink your attention to your lower abdomen


Remember what you enjoy in life

  •  Make a list of your favourite films, music, animals, people, smells, places, then use some reminders

  •  A photo at your desk, contacting friends, putting on some good music - all of these can help you remember the good things in life

  • Notice how good you feel when you help someone.  Great, isn't it?
