LloydsPharmacy has launched a series of health and wellness videos aimed at helping people maintain wellbeing in their homes during the Covid-19 lockdown.
The selection of eight videos, which will be available to download from the pharmacy chain’s Instagram and Facebook accounts and in their blog this month and throughout June, will feature fitness, meditation and yoga classes.
The initiative was started in the wake of data showing that more than four in five adults are worried about the impact of the disease on their lives, with over half saying it has affected their wellbeing and almost half reporting high levels of anxiety.
The wellness videos have been created in collaboration with fitness instructors Cat Meffan and Chessie King.
“We understand that it's a hard time for people up and down the country and it can be difficult for people to access the advice and healthcare they need to stay healthy day to day,” said LloydsPharmacy chief pharmacist Steve Howard.
“Our pharmacies are at the heart of the community and we are proud that we have been able to continue offering vital advice and medicines during this outbreak.
“To support everyone who is doing their best to stay at home and protect themselves and others we want to ensure that we continue to provide advice with content that genuinely supports people’s health.
“We hope that these interactive videos will deliver accessible tips and practical advice so people can stay healthy ‘in mind and body’ whilst at home.”
