While self-isolation measures are necessary, our bodies and minds still need exercise to function well, prevent weight gain and keep our spirits up during these challenging times. Exercise can help keep our immune system become strong, less susceptible to infections and their most severe consequences, and better able to recover from them. Any activity is better than none, and more activity provides more physical and mental health benefits.
Personal trainer-Anna Pitan, who regularly hosts wellbeing exercises for Ekta Unity has put together an amazing short video of simple exercises you can do at home during self-isolation to keep fit.
The end goal during self-isolation is to prevent long term physical and mental health damage by sitting less, moving as often as possible, and aiming to maintain fitness.
