Some advice during Lockdown
I wanted to reach out today to offer some advice and help. As we enter the third week of lockdown, I hope you are coping well with the situation here are some areas which have helped me.
Maintaining Oral health- firstly please continue with your oral health regime as per usual in these times when the immune system can be effected we can be more prone to decline in oral health so please keep up with the brushing and using the regime that you do normally. If you are short on supplies, then most pharmacies are still open and stock most dental health products.
General Health and wellbeing- it can be difficult being indoors for prolonged periods if you are self-isolating then please be mindful of your diet it can be very easy to consume more and also food like refined sugar, like chocolates and sweets, these may stop that initial craving although can do more damage in the long term to your health. It can also be difficult from a mental health perspective one thing that has helped me is keeping up with some exercise and also some meditation 5-10 minutes a day there are many apps out there which can be used the one I use is Headspace.
We are still closed although I am available for advice and help even if you need to chat or need some help with something then give us a call on 01772 717316.
I have set up a video consultation on our website www.lifestyledental.co.uk for this as well.
If you are working during these times, as a key worker, then please stay safe and you have my utmost respect.
We will be over this soon and get back to some normality in the meantime please stay safe.
