Hello everyone, LOCKDOWN again. I have heard from a few of you this week that have tested positive, please get well soon and keep in touch.
We ALL know the rules but did you know?
Touching Your Face
To reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), experts recommend that you do not touch your face because the virus is transmitted through mucous membranes in the mouth, nose and eyes.
Why do You Touch Your Face
Touching your face is a habit that most of us have. We brush the hair from our eyes, scratch our noses, rest our chins in our hands multiple times throughout the day. Not to mention taking glasses on and off, rubbing our foreheads and most recently, putting on and taking off our face masks.
Pay attention to how many times you touch your face in just an hour. According to a recent research study, participants touched their faces an average of 23 times per hour.
How the Virus Is Transmitted
Experts believe that the coronavirus is most commonly spread by droplets that are sneezed or coughed out and are then inhaled by someone else.
Those droplets can land on surfaces, and when you touch that surface and then touch your mouth, nose or eyes, the virus can enter your body.
That is part of the reason why it is so important to wash your hands.
How to Stop Touching Your Face
- Be aware.
Pay attention to how often you touch your face. This can include watching other people. Noticing how often they do it can bring awareness to you.
- Change the way you sit.
Avoid putting your elbows on the table because this often leads to resting your chin in your hands.
- Keep your hands busy.
Reading, cooking, painting, knitting or crochet, rubber band or stress ball to keep your hands occupied.
- Tie or pin back hair.
If your hair is causing you to touch your face, fix it in a new way so you don’t have to keep pushing it out of your eyes.
- Make sure your glasses fit properly.
They should not slide down your face. If you need to push them up or take them off, handle them from sides, not the bridge or other parts that touch your face.
- Use hand cream
Apply a light perfume or lotion on your hands or wrists that you can smell every time you bring your hands to your face.
- Wearing a mask.
A face mask can act as a reminder to not touch your face. However, it’s important to note that, if wearing a mask makes you fidget or you find yourself constantly adjusting it, then it’s not the right fit for you. ……and most importantly wash them. Please tell me why and how can people throw them on the floor and think it’s ok for someone else to pick them up.

Zoom – trial class
On Tuesday morning we had a zoom get together and it was lovely to see so many of you.
After a quick chat we tested out my camera and music and with a little “tweaking” managed to get an idea of how my equipment worked.
Moving forward I will be introducing a charge (SMALL) to join a class but for now let’s have a couple of trial classes. Everyone is included, you do not have to be a move 2 lose member to join in, tell your family and friends if you want too.
Tuesday @ 11am and again on Wednesday @ 6.30pm
Make yourself familiar with zoom, it really is easy. Maybe google a few tips to help with the device that you are using as laptops are different to tablets or i pads.
It will take a while to all get on-line, wear your trainers, clear some space and lets have some fun.
Lockdown has been difficult for many couples during 2020, be it those that live together and those that live in different houses.
I am happy and a “little” sad (not that sad) that my Son Christopher will be moving in to his first rented home with his lovely girlfriend this month.
They are looking for a washing machine and a sofa at the moment and with charity shops closed and on a small budget anything will HELP.
Um spare room, what to do?
Julie says – NO one will be staying for a long long time so MOVE 2 LOSE studio.
Tony says – Scooter parts store room
As I say lockdown relationships – who do you think will win?
