Workout From Home
Let’s be honest, we are anxious. Anxious about our world, our loved ones, our futures, and anxious about when our society will ever get back to normal. Amidst all the uncertainty that looms over us during this time of Coronavirus (COVID-19) around the world, there is one thing we can be certain about— taking care of our health.
There are many factors that come together to upkeep our overall health. It’s important we keep ourselves positively stimulated whether it be for our mind, body, or soul. We’ve put together a list of at-home exercises you can incorporate into your daily fitness routine to build your strength and immunity.

1.Relaxing Yoga Flow
Let’s not forget how easy it is to practice yoga in our homes at any given time. Most of us may be sitting or laying down 90% of the time during social-distancing, a few yoga poses here and there throughout the day can keep your blood flowing and release any inner tension you may be experiencing. As you let your body flow and stretch out, feed your mind positive words. If your feeling stiff and uncomfortable at first don’t worry, yoga isn’t always about movement. Practicing stillness and focusing on your breathing is just as effective. For beginners and avid yogis, we suggest you try this gentle flow.
2. Full Body HIIT Workout
If you’re finding yourself getting bored easily, switch up your day with a full body HIIT workout. Alternating in time intervals between different exercises that target all your muscles and different body parts will keep your heart rate up and burn fat faster than a 30 min run outdoors. Not only do you exercise your cardiovascular system, you build muscle at the same time which helps your body continue to burn fat even after you’re workout ends. There’s really no better time to tone up your body than now! If you’re thinking to yourself “what exactly is HIIT?”, here you can learn more about it and how it can change your fitness lifestyle.
3. Dance Cardio
We’d suggest grabbing a jump rope and getting your heart rate up but for some people this might not be as enjoyable. Have fun with your workout and find an energetic cardio dance routine on YouTube that you can follow. Here’s one of our favorites from PopSugar Fitness channel. You’ll be surprised at how long you can get swept away with dancing along to various routines— you won’t even feel like you’re working out! If you’re at home with a sibling or roommate, have them join in. Sure you might feel silly at first if you’re not the type to dance often, but soon you’ll be laughing and forgetting about the rest.
Staying home isn’t so bad once you realize how many activities you can engage in, and the best part is knowing that it’s all going towards building a better version of yourself. When all this social distancing is over, the goal is to have all our good energy ready to share with others. So remember, staying active is not a competition, it’s about being good to yourself during this time.
