Age GracefullySeptember 23, 2021
Last week I celebrated my 40th birthday. It wasn’t the celebration I had planned for a milestone birthday being in lockdown and all, however my wife, Simone, and family made it a special one.
It made me reflect on what I’d achieved in the past decade and start to think about what I could achieve this decade… Something I hadn’t yet thought of.
Aging is inevitable. But just because you hit 40, or 50, 60, 70, or 80 does not mean you need to accept a life of aches, pains, and gained weight.
It also doesn’t mean that you have to take your foot off the accelerator and cruise the rest of the way.
If you want to age well and continue doing the simple things in life without assistance you have to think about how you eat, move, sleep and breath.
The best part is, regardless of how old you are, it applies to you. Because we all get older.
Changes to COVID measures for local government areas of concernSeptember 20, 2021
The NSW Government has announced that from 12.01am Monday 20 September, COVID restrictions in local government areas (LGAs) of concern will start to align with the rest of Greater Sydney.
Visit nsw.gov.au for the full list of eased restrictions.
Additional requirements for Greater Sydney authorised workers, such as a travel permits or routine COVID-19 testing, are still required for those needing to travel to LGAs of concern or more than 50 kilometres from Greater Sydney to work.
Get tested immediately if you have any COVID-19 symptoms. Wear a mask whenever you leave your home (except when exercising, eating or drinking), keep your distance from those you don’t live with, wash or sanitise your hands regularly and get vaccinated.
Vaccination is the best way to protect ourselves, our loved ones and our communities. Around 60% of people with COVID-19 are under 40, with some needing intensive care.
Everyone aged 12 years and over can get a COVID-19 vaccine. Speak to your local GP or pharmacist or visit nsw.gov.au to make a booking.

Stay Active During LockdownSeptember 8, 2021
Coach Pat and long-time member of Live Well Elyse have been working consistently in lockdown on her joint strength and health during her third trimester as this is of high importance for her, especially since she’s expecting twins!
With the correct exercise selection, set up and cueing, mobility over zoom can be quite the experience. In this case, the experience for Elyse during this particular session was utilizing as much of the hamstring to bring the ankle as close to the bum as possible without letting the lower back interfere.
The result? Elyse has not only maintained her range of motion but has increased both her control and strength as well, especially in her shoulders and hips.

Watch the chaos dwindle in importanceSeptember 1, 2021
This lockdown feels like a marathon, but like all Marathon’s they do come to an end.
We’re coming towards the final stage, so keep pushing. Keep doing the right thing. Keep lifting those heavy things, eating healthy meals, going for walks, stimulating your mind, and loving your loved ones. Maintain your social circle, even if it’s not in person. Call, or even FaceTime your parents and grandparents and kids. Maintain these things and watch the chaos dwindle in importance.
Staying healthy will make you more resilient in the face of an immune challenge, but also because personal health will make you more resilient in the face of any challenge that comes your way. And I suspect we will all be dealing with challenges, regardless of how this all plays out. That’s the way life goes: it’s a series of challenges. That’s what makes life exciting.
