Coming out of lock down, now what?

Now is the time to consider making yourself a priority!
For a long time now we have had to put certain things on hold including looking after ourselves both physically and mentally.

Here are some self care tips that might help.
Physical wellness
  • Go for walks both with people and on your own
  • Get plenty of good quality rest
  • At home workouts
  • Eat healthy meals
  • Catching up with medical appointments that have been missed
Mental wellness
  • Finding quiet time for yourself
  • Finding time for reflection
  • Meditation or breathing techniques
  • Talk to a confidante
  • Seek help if you need it
Social wellness
  • Start seeing people and connecting with friends and family
  • Get out of the house
  • Visit favourite restaurants and venues previously enjoyed
Emotional wellness
  • Check in with yourself from time to time
  • Talk to friends and family
  • Reflection and relaxation
  • Seek help if you need it
Its great to be getting back to normal but be aware that it is common for some people to experience some anxiety with crowds and socializing once again, lets encourage kindness, caring and tolerance and allow people to recover at their own rate according to their journey through this pandemic.

 Is your baby crying excessively?
                     (more than 3 hours of crying a day for 3 days or                         more in a week)
 Is your baby less than 10 weeks old?
If you have answered YES to the above then please get in touch with the CUTIES team.

CUTIES are investigating whether osteopathic care is effective in helping babies cry less. CUTIES researchers would like to test whether an osteopathic approach using gentle ‘hands-on’ techniques works.

The results will help parents in the future decide what treatments are best for their babies.

Taking part would mean that your baby would have an initial consultation to check that they are eligible to be in the study and then they would be given one of two different approaches being studied (non-specific light touch or light osteopathic touch). Your baby would receive up to 4 treatments over a 2-week period with an experienced, registered and specifically trained osteopath.

All treatment will be free but we will ask you (the parent or guardian) to monitor the amount of time your baby cries, and to fill in a crying diary (5-10 minutes per day) for 14 days. You will also be asked to fill in 2 short questionnaires at the beginning and end of the study (each taking 5 minutes to complete).

If you are interested in taking part please contact a member of the CUTIES team:
