We’ve been in lockdown for nearly 4 weeks now, so understandably some of us may be feeling a little cooped up. Staying active, even for 30 mins a day or less, will give big benefits to our fitness, and overall health and wellbeing. At a time when so much is happening that we can’t control, putting things in place for yourself that you can rely on become even more important. Here are our top tips for staying active while staying put. All of these activities can be done in very small spaces, and with a minimum amount of equipment, so give them a go!
What you’ll need:
- A yoga mat. If you don’t have one, a towel will do the trick as well.
- Make-do weights. Use books, water bottles – anything you can get your hands on.
- Resistance bands. If you don’t have anything to hand, you can do these moves perfectly well without them.
- Plenty of water. This one’s crucial. Hydration is key so make sure you have plenty of water to hand. (more…)
