keeping swift, fit, and healthy during lock down
Social distancing and lock down are crucial measures to minimize the spread of Covid-19. So many countries if not all are using them which means individuals are mostly indoors. But what impact will these measures have in terms of health and well being?

Being dormant is one way of keeping your body inactive. Your body need to stay active in order to function normally, keeping active is a great way to ward off some of the psychological issues associated with being cooped up for a long time. This helps you lower stress hormones which may lead to depression and other undesirable conditions.
First, you need to engage your body in some physical exercise. Continue with your workout routine even though this time round not from the gym. Exercising from home is a little affordable as you do not need to pay gym trainers or unnecessary equipment to help you workout. Engaging yourself in regular walks, jogging in the morning and in the evening is a great way of keeping healthy and swift.
For those who are privileged to own some things like a bike, can do cycling around the park or the homestead, rope-skipping is also a way of keeping your body active, it requires less of your energy but burns a lot of calories. Walk up and down your stairs doing some cleaning instead of sitting down. Try dancing even with children to make it more interesting and lively. By doing this, you will really contribute to your daily exercise.
Alternatively, you can use You-Tube as a source of workout ideas,watch videos of your favorite star working out and work them out as well. Fitness and Yoga tutorials may also help a lot. Squats, press-ups and sit-ups are great and easier for those who are not used to gym and lifting of heavy equipment.
