I find there has been two types of people in this pandemic.
The ‘self improvement’ bunch and the ‘WTF’ bunch.
As much as I’d love to be a shining example for self-care and place myself in the first group, in all honesty I’m firmly in the latter.
I did not take up craft, or baking, and I certainly did not get fitter. The stress of financial insecurity and worry at every sniffle with an immunocompromised little one in the fam, the off/on gym closures, the challenging combo of working from home with the kids underfoot… add in a love for cheese and wine and it’s all led to a much rounder mama.
As we move into spring, and we can sense that this challenging era of history might be coming to an end, (personally, I’ve never been happier to get a vaccine in my life!) I’m hoping we can all turn our attention back to our health and wellbeing—both ours and our munchkins (my two also embraced the covid way and spent waaaaay too much of the last 18 months in iPad land!).
So… welcome to our Health & Wellbeing issue! We get summer ready with some life-saving tips on beach safety. We also have a bunch of activities for non-sporty kids. And, after the challenges of the last 18 months, the experts from the Smith Family join us with some tips on looking after your financial wellbeing. Bundle that up with all the regular product reviews, news, local stories and more, and you’ve got your perfect spring read. ?
