Worried about your fitness and weight during the lockdown? Here’s what you can do:
Follow A Routine
It is important for your body to know that it will get food at regular intervals so that it does not go into a fat storing mode
Sleep disruptions affect the hormone secretions in your body which can affect your metabolism and ultimately weight
Include water and various nutritious fluids in your healthy diet plan. It is very important to stay hydrated throughout the day. It keeps your mind and body both fresh as 70% of our brain and body is water.
It is tough to exercise when you are stuck indoors, but it’s very important to keep moving. Learn some yoga, aerobics, Zumba from the net and dedicate 40mins daily to keeping yourself fit
This is probably the toughest to do especially when kids and husbands are home all day, every day. Always look for simple yet healthy recipes. It can also mean another way of cooking the same foods that make them healthier.
For example: If your kid wants to eat French fries; bake them instead of frying. Do prepare creative food recipes for kids and behold you have a healthy version of the same old comfort food at no extra cost.
