"The most wasted of days is one without laughter"
Are you a smoker? Whether it’s a pack a day or an occasional habit, all the evidence tells us that Covid 19 is especially hard on smokers.
Working in healthcare is not like working in other sectors. No matter what your job is, when you work in healthcare, you have a role in keeping people well or in helping them get better. Your job might not be clinical – it could be accounting, or logistics, or maintenance work, but you’re doing that job so that people can get the healthcare they need. That’s important.
"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming”
Staying fit and healthy is more important than ever, but can it be harder to do if your usual choices like your sports club or gym aren’t available. Walking and running are always a great choice, but it is important to stay safe and maintain the recommended 2m distance from other people.
