Just before Christmas I got pneumonia, plus a whole lot of hormone issues.  Great timing, hey. Anyways I am starting to feel not so sick now but I am exhausted, so so exhausted.  I need to get my health and fitness back, and I don't really know where to start.  I bought a treadmill which I used a total of four times before getting sick, and now I am nervous to get back on it so need to build my confidence up with that as well.  Who would I go and see...a gp, a dietician? A personal trainer.  I am just a little nervous and want to make sure I get  well again, I have two toddlers to look after! Any ideas appreciated.

TIA

I had a bad year with recurrent illnesses and am needing to get back into exercise to improve my health. I am seeing an exercise physiologist. Higher qualifications than a personal trainer. Mine is part of a physio practice.

Similar situation here. I was hospitalised with pneumonia twice this year and have had a few health issues as well.

I suggest just starting gently. I don't know how bad you were, but I felt awful for at least two months after I was "okay". Tired, like I couldn't get enough air etc.

I am starting with diet. My doctors surgery has a diet clinic run a nurse. Start with GP and go from there.

    How dogs could make children better readers

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
