Personally I sort of I am have what I suppose a bit of an advantage in staying active in most situations. It is probably pretty much obvious that since I started moving, I haven’t stopped. At this point I am not even convinced I can stop moving and it probably gives motion sickness to anyone who happens to try a face to face conversation with me (especially on a video chat).
To be honest, I work from home a majority of the time. I always make sure to stay active. Since the arrival of the new indoor algorithm I have found that all sorts of activities can even earn your Sweatcoins too. One of my office desks is quite literally a treadmill.
However, there are other activities of which Im not actually going to be publishing clips …
Dancing round the kitchen whilst cooking.
Dancing around the house when not cooking.
Dancing around just because…
Just Dance Kinect (confession I don’t actually do this one personally🤣)
Youtube has a plethora of activity clips.
… anybody noticing a bit of a theme here?
As an added bonus listening to so decent music with a good groove not only drives your body but you can’t help but succumb to the feel good factor so it’s a win win on that side.
For those who like me can’t stand being cooped up within four walls, there are a number of mobile apps that offer video’s of outdoor views, some of which even playback the videos synchronised to the speed of your activity. They may not be perfect but they are great for effectively bringing the outdoor indoor and helping get rid of a little of the anxiety that indoor isolation can cause. Although they main intent is for use when on treadmills, exercise cycles, rowing machines steppers etc. They are just as effective if you don’t have any exercise equipment available. Simply put your mobile or tablet on a stand facing you and run in place! My personal favourite app is called BitGym for iOS and Android and even the free trial gives you a really good idea of how that works but limits activities to 10 minutes per session.
However, the developer has kindly joined in with the efforts to help people with the current anxiety of the millions of people in isolation and have offered FREE access to their premium package until May for all those in quarantine and ilself-isolation. I would definitely recommend giving the app a quick try if nothing else. [https://www.bitgym.com/quaranteam/index.html]
Day to day life at the moment especially is getting difficult for individuals, families, communities and indeed everyone globally. Even with social distancing, quarantine, self-isolation etc. it is a time when we must in our own way come together and help each other through these trying times.
Stay Safe, Stay Strong and where possible keep on steppin’!
