These are testing times for everyone as we all try to do our bit to deal with and fight the threat of coronavirus.
Staying at home and social isolation are key parts of the Government’s plan to combat the spread of the virus.
Strictly adhering to that advice can provide challenges of its own as we look to remain as active and healthy as possible during the necessary shutdown.
To try and help, staff from across the Clarets’ sport science, medical, nutrition and training departments have come up with a five-point plan to help you do what you can to try and remain fit and well – mentally and physically.
The areas covered are:
- Immune health and nutrition
- Mental health/optimising sleep
- Keeping active
- Football for all
- Social distancing like a pro
