The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is almost upon us and we hope you all have a great long weekend. There will be much to celebrate and enjoy.
The Jubilee for many is a time for celebration, but also for reflection on times gone by, with hopefully many happy memories. In addition, it is a marker in time to reflect how far we have travelled on our individual journeys. It might be helpful, positive, or possibly slightly sobering to contemplate our current health and physical condition in comparison to the Diamond Jubilee of 2012, and even further back to the Silver Jubilee of 1977. Of course, you might reflect that you were obviously younger and in a different life phase to 2022, but how was your health and wellbeing (both physical and mental) then in comparison to now?
General knowledge about the need to stay fit, supple, active and able is far more prevalent than it was at either of the dates noted above. This is a good thing, and we hope that the next decade will see further advances through education, and scientific and technological advances.
Perhaps this coming long weekend, an extra element of exercise, sport or stretching might be in order, to start a new physical regime to benefit the decade ahead. Nothing too strenuous if you’re not used to it, but nevertheless the start of something different to help reduce the effects of the ageing process. Remember, invariably we are all living longer, so maintaining a good physical health will be important for the longer term. As you might anticipate, the care that physiotherapy can offer, along with the application of acupuncture where appropriate, has also moved forward.
How can physiotherapy help?
If this has got you thinking, then what words of wisdom would you give yourself in hindsight?
Understanding the benefits and advantages of medical advice, a fitness programme and physiotherapy care to keep you supple, mobile and agile might well be paramount. Perhaps something you would not have done all those years ago. There are many great local services to help both your physical and mental wellbeing and some of these have been featured in our guest blogs. Perhaps take a look again when you have a moment and please do mention us if you make contact with a specialist.
Many decades ahead…well hopefully!
With potentially many decades to enjoy ahead, maintaining your health now is perhaps more important this time round as time marches on for us all.
