Pandemic Fitness Tips #3

Living a healthy, fit life is about good habits that positively impact your body, your mind and your spirit. When a global pandemic hits and forces us out of our daily routines we have to make some changes and be even more deliberate about taking care of our fitness. I am going to start sharing some of my new fitness habits that are taking shape during this trying time. I hope that some of my new habits can help you keep your own fitness goals moving in the right direction.

Tip #3: take frequent breaks. When you are out of your routine and working from home it becomes easy to sit in one place for hours. This limits you movement and exercise plus it is very taxing to your mind and your eyes. The solution is to take breaks. Get up, walk around or even go for a short walk, refill your water, stretch or do anything else that gets you out of that chair. Work from home doesn’t have to mean sedentary life!

One of my pro tips is to listen to your wearable fitness tracker when I gives you reminders to move. Use that reminder and get up and get those steps in.

I know life is different right now and almost every one of us is struggling to find our new “normal.” With some good daily habits this new “normal” can still be a fit life. Good luck and get out there and live your best life. Let’s defeat this virus together!
