National Diabetes week is on the 12th-18th of July and it recognizes all the diabetics. During Covid19 people have not seen their GP as much as they needed to and its outlined here. Now its a really important time to go and see your GP.
It is also said that diabetes increases the risk of COVID19. Now that being said, we are not in normal times at the moment. So it is equally important for you to take care of yourself. Make sure that you sleep, eat and exercise well.
In Melbourne, Australia no gyms are open at the moment but we can exercise outdoors. This is crucial to have the gyms open for our wellbeing as not many people want to exercise out in the cold. Similarly many people are not always motivated to exercise at home.
But I exercised outdoors as it was a nice and sunny day.
That week I did not indulge in a lot of junk food. I managed to look after myself and not stress too much. I slept well. I know that the thought of not seeing friends is daunting for some people.
Diabetes Australia is doing all it can to support you on your journey. Please be kind to yourself during this time. From time to time they will have some Facebook chats that you can participate in.
We are all in this together!
