Getting the most from your
surroundings during lockdown
As we all come to terms with another lockdown,
we need to stay calm, stay positive and look at
what we have and not what we have lost.
We are fortunate enough to live in a beautiful
area surrounded by a perfect combination of
countryside and history to explore, so while
we are allowed to exercise keeping within
Government Guidelines, it is worth remembering
the following and embracing the next lockdown.
The key to everything is staying safe, staying well
and keeping a positive attitude, so control what
you can, get into a routine, be creative and enjoy
the environment and finding ways to exercise. Our
bodies were made to move, so let’s do just that!
Stay safe - Follow the guidelines to ensure you do
not pass the virus on, and equally you do not get
Stay positive - Try not to focus on what you can’t
do and instead look at what you can. There are
so many things you are in control of, so take a

Be creative - Why not use some of the spare
time that you have to learn a new skill? Lockdown
may have given you more time than you had
previously, so you could start planning ahead for
better times and make that your goal for 2021.
Enjoy your environment, and exercise - during
lockdown you can still go out and get fresh air. You
can walk and be free to enjoy the Westwood and
surrounding countryside walks.
The excitement here is that the colours and
textures of nature on these walks will be changing
constantly as we move towards spring in the
coming months. Log and enjoy the changes while
you look to appreciate what we have around us.
Small change, BIG impact is our motto.
