Keeping moving and physically active is important for your body and your mind, and whilst over the coming weeks it might be a little more difficult to do your usual exercise routine, we’ve come up with a few ways to keep you active!
Own an iPad or laptop? Online workouts are your new best friend!
By googling ‘home workouts’ you will find a multitude of exercise videos online which means you have the flexibility to choose whatever workouts suit you best. Joe Wicks is an online fitness trainer and is offering online home workouts that suit the older generation. You can check them out here!
1 hour of outdoor exercise? Get walking!
The Government guidelines state that we are allowed 1 hour of outdoor exercise each day, giving you the chance to get outside and go for a walk. Walking is great for your physical and mental wellbeing, and by taking the opportunity to leave your apartment for a walk, you will be able to get some fresh air and rejuvenate!
Stretching is good for the muscles and the mind
Back to those online home workouts, why not try and find a suitable Pilates tutorial that you can tune in to? Pilates allows you to move your body slowly and stretch out your muscles, whilst also focusing on breathing which can help you to feel less anxious and calmer during your day.
