Tips on stretching and general fitness
Doing my Active Life gym session helps keep my joints moving, my core strong and my mind active too. An extra bonus is making some new friends.

I do some gentle stretches while having a hot shower. Then I apply lashings of Deep Heat. While I’m getting ready for work I have the radio on and have a little dance to shake off the stiffness.
My car has heated seats, which is amazing for my back/hips while driving. I wear a TENS machine in work if I need or use a wheat pillow.
