Advice from Dr Jess Miller on coping with the response to Covid19
Policing brains are great at threat perception. BUT public panic can disrupt it. We can get triggered and reminded of past jobs (family crises, public disorder…)
There is lots of talk about isolation and keeping connected– but it’s very different for police and staff still on the job with families at home. Recognise that.
It’s so easy to ‘be in your head’ when responding to the demands of the job and family life. This latent sense of ‘unease’ about the pandemic is something that our bodies have to get on with. We need to give them support to prevent discomfort.
If you can’t train outside, why not go online or order DVDs to use at home!

TRX Suspension Training: good for zero space, stretching and strength
HIT: good cardio and stress relief. Weights & Tabata: good for zero space, power
