Dry January 

Each year millions of us participate in charity campaigns or make a personal resolution to cut out alcohol for a month at the start of the year. With an estimated 6.5 million planning to take part in January this year do we really know how these short periods of abstinence affect our long-term health? There are obvious potential benefits. Are there drawbacks though?? 

If you have been participating in dry January, well done your almost there!!

Did you know? by the end of Dry January, you are likely to have reduced your calorie intake by 3,840 for the month if you used to drink six glasses of 175ml wine a week, or 4,320 calories over the month if you used to drink six pints of lager a week weight loss could be in excess of 2Kg!! 
A month off alcohol, in healthy individuals drinking at moderate to high levels, does lead to tangible health benefits by the end of the month.  It can decrease blood pressure of around 5%, and improvement in diabetes risk of almost 30%. Also a large factor that are linked to certain cancer risks are reduced. However, we don’t know how long these benefits last, or whether they translate to long-term improvements in health. 
It’s worth bearing in mind that, to have a real benefit on health, people should be drinking within recommended low risk guidelines across the whole year. Dry January might be a helpful way to re-establish control over your drinking, and could have some short-term benefits (a lot of people report sleeping better, for example), but it’s unlikely to have major long-term health benefits in itself. 
To those of you who have told me you have taken part I just want to say 
WELL DONE!

Lockdown ideas for all the family 

As many of you already know I love my garden and my many many plants. If you have been following my garden progress last year I am an enthusiastic novice.  Here are a few pictures taken this weekend.  I have joined a group on face book which focuses on all sorts of gardening and processes. I find it helps me to have a focus. 

A few ideas to keep you busy. Why not try planting seeds inside now. Its great activity for kids and adults. I have been looking online. Lotus plants I think you will agree just beautiful.  
Just for the kids

The link below is a useful one. On the whole these activities just use what you are likely to have around the house already, or you can order online for little money. You should also note that you don’t have to have a A level in art. :) The age range is paticullary good.
