Safeguarding your physical and mental wellness has always been important of course, but amid the coronavirus restriction movement, it has become an even more globally pressing priority.

Iran PressEurope: With restricted movement and advice to ‘stay at home’, it's easy to let fitness fall by the wayside, T3 magazine reported.

While we can’t control the world we live in, we can control our diet and exercise. And the best bit is you don’t have to go hammer and tongs with HIIT workouts. Here are some simple ways to keep fit physically which in turn will help lift the mood.

Neat stands for ‘Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis’. Put simply, it’s a clever way to sneak exercise into your day without actually taking time out to schedule a workout. Some ways to incorporate those is by doing some squats while waiting for the kettle to boil, volunteer to take things upstairs, do some gardening, use adverts to do some push-ups, pace up and down the house when taking phone calls. 

All these add up and decrease the time we are sedentary.

With gyms closed, online fitness classes are all the rage. While there is a plethora of free workouts to choose from, we recommend paying for them. Why? Because let’s face it, we’re way more committed to doing something when money’s involved. Plus, it adds a personal element and helps you feel like you’re part of a wider community – albeit it a virtual one. It’s a boost to our mental health especially as human contact is currently limited.
