Our speaker this month was Tracey Smith, the Parkinson’s Nurse for North Herts, who works at the Lister, QEII and Hertford Hospitals.
Her message was loud and clear. A positive attitude will help us make the best of everything we have. She advocates the things that we already know that are good for us, This encompasses taking exercise, both mind and body, taking care that we have a good diet, and pay attention to our overall health.
These are not new messages and we already know that these things are important. Tracey’s talk, however, put these points so well and with such an emphasis on how we can help ourselves that they reminded us of how important they are. The talk covered mental health as well with some insight into how it can be addressed.
Overall, Tracey was informative in an entertaining and positive way.
