Covid 19 has brought a lot of changes to our lives. For some of us, it was the perfect time to take a break from work and start a family. For others, it was bad news amidst even more. Many lost their jobs, their ability to move around, be happy and productive. 

The effects of a pandemic cannot be simply written in two to three words or sentences. We could go on forever about how it changed all of us, including enterprises and small businesses. But the biggest change we have seen is in our movement. The furthest destination most of us reach since the pandemic is from our bed to the refrigerator. Others take simple pleasure in being able to walk to their malls and do a little grocery shopping. However, the joy of grocery shopping is extremely limited when we feel suffocated under the mask and in the hot weather. The only safety we have in the outside world is the safety of social distancing, the mask, and maybe a sanitization stick like Dr. Clo against Covid 19. It became easier to stay home, limit our movement and simply take on tasks that require no commute or walking outside. 

The lack of movement has left a lot of us with major health implications. For some of us who need exercise and movement under medical needs, are left in serious danger. However, there are still something’s we can do to tackle the issue of exercises and movement even during the pandemic. Being in the pandemic for over a year has forced us to take various measures to implement exercise even during the lockdown. Here are something’s you can do as well to improves your exercising habits during the pandemic! 

Exercise As The First Thing In The Morning 

We tend to get lazy in the morning. We skip a healthy breakfast and head straight to the energy drink or a huge sugary pancake to fill the void. With remote work, many of us have been sleeping in late and only waking up in pajamas to go to work. Our daily commute to work is replaced with unhealthy habits. Instead of fostering these habits in the morning, we can choose to exercise as the first thing. Exercising right after waking up is not as tiring as many might assume. We are fueled from the dinner and a light breakfast in the early morning to exercise lightly or even vigorously.

Join A Running Club 

Exercising is fun as a result of its social aspect. With the pandemic, we are left alone with no partner to motivate us to run a little longer. However, the online medium has made it easier for us to connect with others even amidst the pandemic. So use the power of online social groups and running groups to fuel your exercising habits. 

Watch Fitness Videos 

Watching more and more fitness videos online does not only motivate us but also makes us better at exercise. The more we practice what we see online the more we become confident in exercising. So surround yourself with content such as videos and pictures that motivate you to exercise productively during the pandemic.
