Welcome Back How to Reboot Your Physical and Mental Well-Being for a Post-Pandemic World by Dr. Elaine Chin
Most people have found living through the pandemic difficult. Many have lost jobs or businesses, felt depressed and even suicidal, or struggled with other health issues. Even if it isn't affecting your life too much, the constant bad news takes its toll. This extremely useful book is a minefield of advice for looking after your health during and after the pandemic, and generally.
Dr Elaine Chin begins by telling how she handled the beginning of the pandemic in Canada. Apparently, it was a nightmare, and panic prevailed. For example, after raising $5 million to buy masks from China, there was actually a higher bidder at the airport, and the masks were 'kidnapped'. Dr Chin needed all of her inner strength to get things ready for the medics and a possible influx of patients in her charge in double-quick time. She also formed an organization to help other doctors obtain PPE.
Much of the book is about looking after your health during the pandemic, however. She has an interesting section on vaccines, antibodies and tests. She provides advice about knowing your numbers (including blood pressure and cholesterol), meditation, spiritual health and losing weight. She even has a section about telemares, which I will reread.
This is highly recommended for anyone interested in staying healthy during the pandemic.
I received this free ebook from NetGalley in return for an honest review.
