Strategies and tips for looking after yourself and being productive while staying at home with elite sports nutritionist James Collins.

Never before have so many of us been stuck at home, with no clear idea how long we'll be indoors. Coronavirus has upended our lives in a dramatic way, and the challenge now is to make the best of what is clearly a very difficult situation.

This episode's guest is James Collins, a performance nutritionist who has worked in elite sport for many years. He's been a key member of Team GB at three Olympics, was Arsenal's head of nutrition for seven seasons and has worked with the national football teams of England and World Cup winners France. He now also works with top music and entertainment performers and businesses too.

In this episode of DTMTS, James talks to Simon about looking after yourself and still being productive while stuck at home. James focuses on several key areas including how to set up your home environment, the importance of routine, the importance of getting a daily dose of exercise, setting boundaries, 'checking in with yourself' and some sleep strategies. James also explains how to think about your nutrition and plan your meals, even when you can't get hold of the things you normally want.

This episode was recorded remotely, not in the studio as it normally is.
