Is Corona the only health issue during this lockdown?
Here are some of the simple steps to get through the lockdown by being fit and healthy:
- Stop munching on those fried snacks: Yes! You
are in your comfort zone at home and fried munchies compliment your mood
the best but not your health. Switch to healthier options like baked food,
fruits, and salads to satisfy your crave of binge eating.
- Train the brain: Yes, we can train our brain just like we train our
dogs. Have a scheduled meal timing and try to stick to the same timing every
day. It might take some time for your brain to get a hang of this habit but you
will definitely get a hang of it once the habit kicks in.
- Get yourself a hobby: Research tells us that we tend to binge eat when
we are bored. There's plenty of time in hand since we are at home and we don’t
have to travel to the office. Get yourself hooked up with painting, gardening,
DIY crafts, etc,. When you get busy with something you tend to eat less.
- Burn some calories: Lockdown has shut a door on all gyms and parks that
doesn't mean you have an excuse to be a couch potato. Make sure to exercise
daily within your home. Many simple and effective exercise videos are being
uploaded by trainers. Even a simple 30 min brisk walk daily can help you stay
- Do not overwork: It is found that people tend to work beyond normal work
hours since we are at home and there are no restrictions. Work only for the
stipulated time so that you have leisure time left to exercise and work on your
hobbies. As we are at home and no manager who is checking up on us and we don’t
have to travel back from the office, we tend to delay our work and get
distracted by surfing through Instagram, Facebook, or any other social
networking websites. Make sure you maintain the office schedule by having a
constant log in and log off time.
Eat mindfully, get your creative side on, follow a schedule, burn some calories, and last but not the least drink loads of H2O.
