|again thank you all.
to add i do have a dog and it is a jackrussel but he is older than me and living in somerset on a farm he only needs the back door to be open and if we go for a walk i have to carry him back as he just sits down as soon as we turn round to come back.
mr wonderful if this had happened 1 year ago i would have put this down to the stress now day trading within my comfort zone and with more experience i find it will not affect me i now go into a trade with an amount i will lose not win.|
|royce, you are a young man. keep on mate!
limousine, well done. the shopping break is not just physical exercise - and walking is one of the most underestimated aerobic exercises, but you need to walk swiftly and coniunously, but not to any extraordinary degree. it realy healps to structure your time and get over the boredome that is likeley to beset one after hours of gazing at the monitor.
charlet gir, quite agree, aerobic exercises do not need to be vigorous, but you need to push yourself slightly above your existing limits. you should be breathing slightly above your natural rate but still be able to hold simple conversation.|
To me excersice is a hugely underestimated factor regarding good health,I am 37 and a few years ago I took up cycling and it totally changed the way I felt at home and at work.I now feel as healthy as I was when I was 18,you really can feel the good it is doing you.
I hope you feel better and thank you for sharing your experiences with us.
We met briefly at the traders meet at Martworm's place. Was horrified to read about your illness. Must be shattering for you and your family. I do so hope you're well and truly on the mend and on the way to a full recovery. Your post highlights what a thoroughly unhealthy pastime we all share - I guess the adrenaline and inactivity are a deadly mix - and shows the value of fitting in regular exercise and taking breaks in the day when trading lulls. When all's said and done, life and good health are what truly matters.
Best of luck...Nick|
|Sorry to hear of your illness but am glad you are on the way to recovery. Best Wishes to youl I agree with jackrussell. I have 3 Great Danes and they start my day off on the right foot (so to speak). But we should all know that at about 11.30am you can afford to leave the screen for a few laps around the block until 2.30 when the dow and naz opens.
Best Wishes Tricia|
A good story of a fightback there. Congrats. Pip is the smaller type who should be bald the amount of hair she sheds. Trying to say no to a run as she sits looking up is impossible. That's why I reccomended a Jackie to Royce. Tonight was cold but feel better for the walk. Cheers.|
|Could anyone with the IT skillset put up a table where those who opted in could log exercise for that day and week?
For Example I did ten lengths of a 25 metre pool today - usually more but I was on life saving duty.
Tomorrow to the New Gym in Shepherd's Bush to row 3200 metres.
I rather suspect without Royce's post both those may have been forgotten
or euphemistically put - postponed
See new thread|
|I have another idea, now implemented.
I am using my wifes birthing ball, and very comfortable it is. I can exercise while typing!|
|Good luck Royce, and a swift return to full health. All of us risk the same if we sit too much. Maybe a standing trading station is the thing ... keep us thinking on our toes.|
|Thanks for sharing that Royce. Everyone believes it will never happen them. One hell of a realisation when it does though, no matter what it is. Good to have your mind working again.
MT glass LOL|
just to add my best wishes for your recovery too! must have been terrible shock.
and as women love to give advice:
i advise you choose low volatile shares that have wide trading ranges, then as you put your trade in at the bottom, (stop in place) you nip out of the side door, couple of laps around the fish pond, and arrive back in place to see you stock reach its target! and if that doesnt move the old circulation and least it will give your neighbours something to talk about!
all the best
Your post made for chilling reading,i have been concerned about myself in recent months so this is the spur i needed to do something about it.
A big thanks for posting it so graphically... but would you say that stress/emotion played a part in the months prior to the illness - which may have contributed as well as the other factors you've mentioned.- (i.e. stress when your trades are in place - a situation I find myself in sometimes,) if so is it possible to say to what extent - if at all.
I hope you get back to full fitness soon
Best wishes, I hope you recover soon.Thanks for the advice/warning to all of us.
Re Lofty's comments in message 58, I had a straight leg - duff knee and hip 6 years ago ( an old injury came home to roost ).
Local specialist offered to do a fibre optic and poke about, but could see nothing on the Xrays.
I declined the offer !
Found an exceptional osteopath locally who worked magic with my joint problems, then sent me to a Shiatsu therapist who was equally magic.
Got a Jack Russell ( the big variety as per Frasier TV prog and many adverts )5 years who insists on keeping me fit, and does an exceptional job of it.
I am now in my early fifties and definitely much fitter than I was 10 years ago, - and no limp.
I feel I have been very lucky so far, your story and others confirm it.
Like many on here, I work from home in a screen intensive job and over the past 6 months have come to realise how drained I am after an intensive session.
I am trying to cut down my screen hours, or at least break them into manageable chunks between less sedentary activities.
For those who have the inclination and circumstances to acquire a dog, I can thoroughly recommend it. Even after a bad trading day, he can still make you smile ! ( even in Winter )
|Royce - very sorry to hear of your illness. Hope you get back to normal quickly...
|AHKEEN AT HARRODS,GO FOR IT.|
|Want to add my thanks to you for posting your experience. My working life has long been a sedentary one, but with the coming of the pc, ever more so. Have learnt though to walk into town at least once a day, even if just to post the letters and even though it is just ten minutes there and ten back.
So glad you are almost completely recovered.
Best wishes, c|
|Sorry to hear of your troubles royce. I'm trying to keep away from the screens as much as possible for just these health related issues and have just given up smoking. But I do need more exercise, though as you note, in itself that may not be enough.
Looking forward to your roar being fully restored in due course.
All the best
|thanks for all the good wishes
i am 45 years old i now have to take warfarin [rat poison]to thin the blood.|
|thank you all for your best wishes. i will look into all your ideas etc.i am back at home and coming back to 100% but will keep away from trading for a week or so, forgot to say i am 46 years old.|
|Royce, very sorry to hear of your exerience but pleased you are on road to recovey.
Unfortunately I have always had tendency to work long hours and always focus on task in hand to exclusion of all else. Reached a crisis 12 years ago when I was more than 3 stone overweight and 3 of my colleagues went down with heart attacks in 1 month. Lost the weight, took up runnin and have a more balanced life.
Recently joined the local Fitness First Gym and was quite amazed at the change in technolgy and atmosphere since my school days when all you got were wall bars and bar bells. Most important though is that the trainers who work there treat fitness as a science and have programmes to cater for all levels of physic and motivation.
Slightly off thread. In the words of John McEnroe: " You cannot be serious"? I don't know of anyone that looks at the mouse while working.
I think I would learn to use another 'digit' before paying that #:-))
Glad to see you are on the mend from a very shocking experience. You are definitely missed on the traders thread and also at the C'mas dinner on Friday. Have a relaxing (but exercisingly strenuous :-)) C'mas and make sure you fully recover your strength ready to growl a bit in the New Year.
|Best wishes for the future, a very serious lesson to us all.|
|Best wishes to you Royce,you realy have been through the wars.Heres hoping your recovery is a speedy one - Im sure all the bb members feel the same.Loftys suggestion is a good one,steady walks will do you the power of good.Keep us infomed as to how youre getting on. JAX.|
Best of luck getting over this as best you can. And thanks for the warning.
Wonder if this may be a solution for those of us who just cant leave the screen: foot operated mouse
