Exercise in this pandemic?
You must be mad!
Your only exercise cannot be opening and closing the fridge (stop snacking haha) as well as changing channels on the TV.
Personally, I didn’t want to be a big belly rude gyal when lockdown was over.
I am a baby girl for life, and I would like to stay healthy during and after the pandemic god willing.
Health is wealth
Exercise is so important especially in these times when our movements are restricted.
Getting outside for some fresh air is such a blessing.
Gym classes, going for walks or runs, home workouts, going to the gym itself it can be all positive and can show your determination and resilience against the pandemic.
I know exercise isn’t for everyone and I am not telling everyone to go to the gym but making some movements is key.
You are in interviews telling your employer that ‘In my spare time, I go to the gym 2 to 3 times a week’ as a hobby but you’ve only seen the entrance. #youseeyourlife
I was that babe.
Health is wealth!
Health is really wealth and especially with black and brown people more susceptible to Coronavirus.
We need to ensure the immune system is on 10.
We can sit at home and watch Netflix until we are red like the Netflix logo, then we can go on YouTube and then BBC iPlayer but standing outside for 10 mins a day can make such a little difference.
If you don’t feel comfortable leaving home, there are plenty of home workouts on YouTube or Instagram which you can do. Look how popular Joe Wicks workouts were in lockdown. Even if you are not mobile enough, just exercising for example a chair workout or just incorporating daily stretches can bring about massive benefits.
Being active can be so good for the mind as well. It can really improve your wellbeing.
It is very easy to see the negative and become very pessimistic during these times which is very easy to do but there is always light somewhere.
What is meant for you, will not pass.
Also if you choose not to exercise then that is totally fine as well. We all have a choice.
Its not everyday Netflix and Chill, sometimes its why are you running?
Have you exercised in the pandemic? If so, what was your routine?
Peace until next time,
