The secret to getting ahead is getting started

I hope that you are getting excited about the possibilities open to you through PD Warrior. You are the driver of this journey and you can be as active as you want to be. Let us help you with all the exercise, education and support you need.

If you exercise regularly, you have got a running start. Establishing good exercise behaviours is probably one of the best things you can do for yourself at this point. All it takes to get started is a little bit more each day than the day before. Check out the monthly exercise tips and weekly exercise circuit in the tribe feed, or go for the best results with the 10 Week Challenge, online coaching or online gym. Get yourself in to peak physical and mental condition and ready to face the next chapter.

Understanding your personal biases and mindset right now is another excellent starting point. Have you created some self-limiting beliefs that are holding you back? It is often the case that most people have stopped doing activities that they are capable of but stopped doing because of a lack of confidence more than anything. If that is the case for any of your activities, please write them down… challenge yourself to find a way to resume the activities that give you joy. Let us help you. There are many adventures that await.

June – John Lake

Looking back, some indicators of PD had been there for maybe up to two years before my diagnosis in April 2019. Principally my hand writing (I am R hand dominant) was becoming more and more laboured. Some eight months earlier I had decided to learn the violin, so the clincher became that I could not bow smoothly with my right arm, which became increasingly frustrating for me and my teacher. My father was afflicted with Parkinson’s late in his life, so all added up, the diagnosis was just a confirmation of what I already suspected.
