Heart transplant gives Bryan another shot at gold | Heart Foundation NZ

About This Project

Bryan believes finding a physical activity you can enjoy doing is a great way to rehabilitate both the body and the mind.

“There’s always something you can do, isn’t there? Even if you’re sick you can still try and do things – even if it’s just sitting there and moving your legs, moving your arms, just something to keep your body moving. You can go walking, you can go aqua-jogging, if you’re physically capable you can play golf, you can go ten-pin bowling. There are so many activities out there. You can go dancing or anything. Anything like that that takes your mind off it and gives you something to do – and something to look forward to doing.”

And he says it’s important to remind yourself that your health will improve. “That’s a big part of it, getting your head around the fact that you are going to get better.”
