Out today in @BJSM_BMJ #HotOffThePress

The relationships between rugby union, and health and well-being: a scoping review 🏉

A Thread - please feel free to share! #RugbyAndHealth

Why do this study?

Majority of research has focused on link between rugby and injuries/concussion, with no 'big-picture' scientific overview of the potential relationships between rugby, and health and wellbeing

We wanted to provide this overview so that players/parents etc could make evidence-informed decisions around participation, and to identify key areas where research is needed that would provide insights in the future

#COPD=3rd leading cause of death🌍 Symptoms mean exercise is hard but essential for health‼️ My thesis = Experiences of using apps&wearables for monitoring #physicalactivity: People with #ChronicObstructivePulmonaryDisease & healthcare practitioners⌚️📱1/3 #CovUniTweCon @CU_ReCap Image
2/3 Activity monitors are widely used to try & increase activity, but do they really work?🤔Apparently they can increase motivation & awareness of #physicalactivity 📱⌚️I’ve interviewed people with #COPD about their experiences of using apps & wearables🗣️💭#CovUniTweCon @CU_ReCap Image
3/3 Then I spoke to healthcare practitioners about what they think of #COPD patients using tech (📱⌚️) in practice 🗣️ From understanding experiences, we can improve interventions using apps/wearables & hopefully increase activity levels for better health👍 #CovUniTweCon @CU_ReCap Image

Year 2 of my #PhD when I was atvthe peak of my #PhysicalActivity and #fitness! This was the time when anything felt acheivable 😀
Loved my #hair that I had grown since the start of my PhD! This was #onceinalifetime thing for me to do! I donated 12’ to @locksoflove #cancersurvivor
Then the #science #reality and #depression hit me! It was the most unimaginable experience! It’s easy to brush off when other people say what depression entails, but the #experience was very profound and physically devastating! I noticed the smallest things around me differently!
At the end of year 5, with the help of many #people I beat the #depression! Ofcourse I had occasional flairs from that #experience. But the #rockbottom was something else! In a way I’m #glad I experienced it ad I truly cared about my PhD #research. @OpenAcademics @AcademicChatter

1/ Q: My diet consists of ice cream, bagel bites, and other processed foods. What’s up with these "#Covid Cravings"?

A: You are not alone! Ice cream and processed foods are flying off the shelves these days. Here’s a few reasons why + how to keep the comfort eats in check.
🍩 The brain responds positively to sugar in particular, releasing Dopamine which can make us feel good.
🍪 Many of our favorite childhood foods were chocked with fat, sugar, and salt. The #nostalgia of these “comfort foods” can provide solace in times of uncertainty.
🗓️ The #CoronavirusPandemic has disrupted all routines, including those around eating, resulting in different patterns of eating and food choices.…

Today is #WorldObesityDay.
Worldwide obesity has nearly tripled since 1975.
Most of the 🌎🌍🌏's population live in countries where overweight & obesity kills more people than underweight.
@WHOSEARO @WHOAFRO @WHOEMRO @WHO_Europe @pahowho @WHOWPRO Overweight & obesity are major risk factors for a number of chronic diseases, including:
🔴 diabetes
🔴 cardiovascular diseases
🔴 cancer
Once considered a problem only in high income countries, overweight & obesity are now on the rise in low- and middle-income countries.
@WHOSEARO @WHOAFRO @WHOEMRO @WHO_Europe @pahowho @WHOWPRO Eating a healthy diet 🍎🍉🍌🥕🥦🍆 can help prevent #obesity. People can:
✔️ maintain a healthy weight
✔️ limit total fat intake
✔️ increase consumption of fruit, vegetables, pulses, whole grains and nuts
✔️ limit the intake of free sugars and salt

(1/5) Good #SundayMorning! This week’s #SundaySpotlight during #HeartMonth highlights the silent signs of a heart attack. Not all heart attacks occcur the way you’ve seen in movies – are you feeling any of these symptoms? Read more from @PreventionMag:…
@PreventionMag (2/5) @PreventionMag explains how a ‘silent heart attack’ can even occur while you sleep. You may not know you’ve even had one until a 2nd, more obvious #HeartAttack lands you in the ER. Pay attention to the signs.
@PreventionMag (3/5) Let’s pay extra attention to # 6⃣! Sometimes a sign is that you just feel lousy! But what if it’s more than being rundown from stress for you or a loved one? Pay attention to what those around you are saying and feeling – you could prevent or alert them of a heart attack.

(1/4) Good #SundayMorning! This week’s #SundaySpotlight highlights the ways #PhysicalActivity can make you not only healthier, but happier! @CNET explains the benefits that may not be as obvious, such as connecting with others and boosting your confidence.…
@CNET (2/4) We now know that any amount of #PhysicalActivity has some health benefits. Did you know some of these are immediate? Even just 1⃣ episode of activity can reduce anxiety & blood pressure, and improve sleep quality & insulin sensitivity.
@CNET (3/4) This means you can get up right now and make yourself healthier on the spot. How about some squats or a brisk walk around the neighborhood? All of which can help prevent 8⃣ types of cancer including: bladder, breast, colon, kidney, endometrium, esophagus, lung & stomach!
