A second person has died from Covid-19 in Monaco. Meanwhile, the Principality’s Minister of State has fully recovered from the virus.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
For more healthy tips see www.naomis.kitchenHealthy snacks on the go Have you ever experienced “hanger”? It’s the result of hunger meeting anger and usually occurs if you skip a meal, which causes a drop in blood sugar. Time flies at a tradeshow and hanger is a common problem, which often causes unhealthy emergency binge snacking. Like I mentioned previously with the water tips, plan ahead and pack a snack. Personally I love Medjool dates as their natural sugars give me the lift I need. Always balance your snacks to include a good source of fat and carbohydrates; the perfect and easy way to do this is to add a few nuts (6-8 either almonds, walnuts or pecans for example). Otherwise you can pick up some great snack bars. I love the Rawbites bars, which are bars made from raw ingredients (dates, nuts) and with a slight naturally flavouring (like cacao or cinnamon). You’ll find these at the well-stocked Dietetique Gourmande bio store at 7 avenue Saint Laurent. Body moves If you’ve had a heavy night of eating or drinking (or both!), a workout may not sound too appealing but I urge you to fight any resistance, put on your trainers and move your body. Exercise, even a simple walk, will boost your energy and restore your mood as it stimulates brain chemicals that make you feel happier and more relaxed. Luckily we have the most beautiful natural gym on our doorstep with coastal walks going toward either Menton (from the Monte-Carlo Country Club) or towards Cap d’Ail Plage Mala (from the car park at the end of the beach). You can tie in a business “walk meeting”, catch up with friends on foot or simply enjoy some alone time, which during a hectic work event can be most appreciated.
