How to Stay Fit While Being at Home


There are many of people who are now forced to be at home due to the Corona virus - myself included. With schools, restaurants, bars, movies, and gyms being temporarily closed, we now confined inside for most of the day. It is very easy to gain weight now because we are only steps away from the kitchen, and snacking from boredom is a very real thing. That combined with not getting as many steps in each day and the lack of fitness facility, the pounds could add up quickly.


First, step away from the quarantine snacks. Even if you stocked up on somewhat healthier options, make sure you are limiting yourself to two to three snacks per day, and pay attention to the serving size. If you know that certain foods trigger you to eat more than one should, get rid of it. Aim to eat 3 balanced meals with lean protein, nutritious carbohydrates, and healthy fats.


Second, set a daily schedule that includes at least an hour of some form of physical activity. I recommend doing some resistance training with either body weight exercises or weighted exercises with bands or dumbbells for 30 minutes and including some form of cardio for 30 minutes too, such as jumping rope, walking, or running. Doing cardio outside is a great way to get some fresh air and vitamin D from the sun.


Next, stay hydrate by drinking six to eight glasses of water. It can be plain or unsweetened sparkling water, and start with a glass as soon as you wake up, especially if you are going to drink coffee, which acts as a diuretic. Herbal tea is another alternative to quench your thirst. Limit or avoid soda, juice, and alcohol consumption because those calories add little to no nutritional value.


Last, make sure you are taking a daily multivitamin to get essential nutrients and minerals your body needs to function properly. Adding some Vitamin C would be great as well to boost your immunity too! There are many other supplements that you can take which I can include in a future separate post.
