If you are someone who has usually followed a proper routine, stuck to your diet, and maintained your fitness goals, chances are that some of that flew out of the window while you were stuck at home. Especially during these times when the pandemic requires us to stay at home, getting back on track, or staying fit is getting harder. Not to mention, being stuck at home brings with itself constant and unlimited access to the kitchen! Time to read on for Lockdown Fitness: 3 Easy Ways To Keep Up Your Goals While Stuck At Home!
1. Take Any Chance You Get To Go Outside
Sounds ironic maybe, but fresh air will do you a lot of good for all aspects of your health especially with all this confinement you’ve been going through. If you’re in a place wherein you can still enjoy the benefits of going outdoors, provided you maintain the social distancing rules, then make the best use of it. Take any chance to go for a walk, hike, or run and be outside. Make sure you follow all the hygiene rules when you are outside and carry with you the magic potion of hand sanitizer. The outdoors automatically improves your mindset and refreshes you.
2. Set a Recurring Alarm
Remember the game you played as children where everyone danced for a while and then went into a statue mode when the music stopped. Well, you can do the opposite as an adult to stay fit and have a little bit of fun.
Set a recurring alarm every two hours wherein you can follow it with 10 jumping jacks, push up or squats. This will ensure you get a bit of exercise every two hours and are not sitting in an idle posture for too long. There are a ton of exercises you can incorporate into your daily schedule which can help you maintain body weight and keep you active. It doesn’t take too much time either to do a quick set of exercises and then return to whatever it is you were doing.
3. Follow a Fitness Celebrity or Blogger
This could be one of the most fun ways to stay fit while you are stuck indoors. Celebrities often create blogs and other media outlets wherein they take you on their everyday journey to fitness. Follow a fitness blog of your choice to keep your workout fun.
You will be able to find good advice, information, and expertise from people in the field of fitness, and you can find interesting, fun techniques and tips that will help create your ideal daily routine. What’s more, you can even start a blog of your own. You can take your readers on your fitness journey and maybe even inspire someone else who is stuck, to solve their own weight-related problems. A positive mindset is all you need to keep yourself focused and healthy. Remember, tough times don’t last but tough people do!
