A perfect fitness regime doesn’t exist without proper planning and consistency. The outbreak of Coronavirus has put a lock to many businesses in the society, from hotshot businesses to small startups everyone is striving to get through these unsettled existential crises.
Shutting down of any business wouldn’t have impacted us as much as the closing of gyms has. Working out in the gym is the only physical activity we used to do in our entire day, at least for the majority of us.
Staying active during this crucial time is more important than ever, to our physical and mental health. Regular exercise is important as it promotes your overall health. It boosts your immune system, supports weight loss, improves your physical fitness, and provides your body with overall health.
Well, the entire world is suffering so stop making excuses for losing out on your health and fitness with an excuse of gyms being closed. Now, is the perfect time for you to take control of your health and start working out at home.
We have come up with ways on how you can keep yourself fit and healthy at home; while gyms are still closed and won’t be opening anytime soon:
1. Have an Exercise Schedule
It is important to create and follow a workout schedule. A schedule works as a roadmap that includes what you need to do and how much you need to do for attaining your goals.
Your schedule should have the time you are going to devote to your workout and since the gyms are closed a well-thought workout plan at home will give an edge to the outcomes.
2. Plan your meals
Your meals play a very important role in achieving healthy body goals. Combining a good nutrition plan with your efficient workout schedule will help you a lot in accomplishing desired results.
3. Be active
Make sure to limit your prolonged sedentary behavior. Studies have shown that even one hour of excessive sedentary behavior (binge-watching Netflix) may cause a lower immune system; making you vulnerable to infections.
Moreover, it is also said that sedentary behavior can also increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes et cetera.
4. Don’t Over train
Strenuous exercise won’t give you any better or faster results. Being healthy is a long term game and not something one can do overnight.
Also, strenuous exercise sucks up all your energy which might leave you defenseless to the infections for a particular period of time.
Be indulged in daily physical activity with a suited time frame. This won’t overstrain your body and will give it enough time to adapt with your workout regime.
5. Stay Motivated
We know it’s a bit more difficult to work out at home than working out at the gym. You can’t have gym equipment at home and the atmosphere of the gym gives you more motivation to workout.
Don’t let that feeling stop you. Motivation is all you need to get yourself started and keep going. Consistency is the key, be consistent with your limited amount of workout and you will surely have a noticeable difference in no time.
