Now more than ever it is vital to keep your mind and body healthy. However, that’s not very easy when you are stuck at home all day, stressed from isolation and the looming threat of illness. In order to keep yourself in the best possible shape, follow these easy tips: stay physically active, maintain a healthy diet with a combination of wholesome foods and natural supplements for immune support, take breaks from the news and social media, and video chat with friends and family.
Just because your gym or studio is closed does not mean your body gets a vacation. While it’s perfectly fine to rest and relax, you should still try to remain active as much as you can.
There are plenty of online tutorials and free trial periods for all kinds of different exercises that match your interests. From yoga and HIIT to Zumba and choreography, there are plenty of ways to keep your body moving and strong.
We all know food is important but making sure we stay on that path is an entirely different story. Make sure you are still getting plenty of fresh produce in every meal to keep your body healthy and a dessert or treat every once in a while, to keep your mind healthy.
If produce at your chain grocery stores are limited, try going to a local market or ethnic grocery store. They often have plenty of food and are just as delicious.
To make sure your body is at its peak, try adding some supplements to your daily routine, too! Vitamin D, fish oil, and natural immune support supplements are excellent ways to get ahead of any illness you might come across.
We live in a world that is run by constant interaction with the media. In order to keep your mind clear and in a positive space, it’s important to take a break from the constant buzz of worried headlines—unplug and give yourself some space.
Leave your phone at home and take a walk around your neighborhood. Putting some literal distance between you and your incessant media source will give your mind time to be at ease, if only for a minute.
Just because you are indoors does not mean you can’t still hang out with friends and family. In the age of technology, we have the capability to stay connected with anyone, no matter where they are.
Keeping contact with your friends will give you an outlet to unload your worries and maintain those necessary social interactions. Video chat with your friends, have a virtual cocktail hour, or host an online game night. The possibilities are endless.
