Darren has always taken life – and managing his conditions – in his stride, his sense of humour buoying him through any slips and setbacks. This was put to the test during COVID-19, as Darren had to stay home and shield. But as always, he’s found ways to find some silver linings, cracking jokes with his family, doing garden improvements, and even building a home gym in his shed. He’ll often try to workout with his sons as they egg each other on and give one another a bit of a ribbing. After all, being active is far better when there’s a bit of banter involved.
How Darren Gets Moving
Darren has been using the home gym he’s set up in his shed as a way stay active, lifting weights and using a stationary bike. He also keeps on his feet around the home, making sure things stay tidy and in order. Since Darren has been shielding, his son has taken over dog walking duties for the family dog, Molly – though Darren still enjoys playing around with her in the back garden.
