In the past week
You could try splitting your walk into two pieces. That way, even if you get hot, it’s for shorter and you get to recover sooner. You can do one early in the day when it’s cooler and then do your later one but it’s shorter.
When I was a teen, I used a piece of lemon and rubbed the juice on my skin and let it sit for a few minutes before washing it off with soap. I dont know if that was just a myth or if it helped, but that’s what I did. In my imagination, it helped haha.
Are you doing any better? Take care. You can get through this. Reach out to telehealth. Really. Go for it and talk to a counsellor. Even if it’s just one session. It can make a difference and help shake your head into perspective. This is a scary time. It’s justified to feel frustrated or even some fear. But when it starts to eat away at…[Read more]
I looked into it a bit. Try swimming! Total body workout, lots of fat burning, but it’s actually calming, too! I hope you can give that a try if there’s a pool or lake near you!
You can still do intense workouts, just don’t do them too much. Don’t go for a run 5 times a week if you’re controlling stress. Go once or twice. Then, if you find you’re still feeling good, you can try more, but pay attention to how you feel. Add slowly and see how you go.
When the pandemic lockdowns started, I had all this energy and was doing workouts at home pretty good. I was still gaining weight because of all the food I can’t stop eating. But I was doing lots of workouts. Now, I have no energy. I’m so tired in the afternoon I could sleep for hours. HOw do I get past this without just drinking a ton of coffee?
I couldn’t get on board with qi gong. Tai Chi is harder than it looks and it’s pretty fun but not exactly something to build up a sweat. I use it as a yoga alternative when I feel the need to move a bit instead of holding still. I recently used the Headspace guided meditation for walking to walk around my house a million times without going nuts LOL
If your bike just needs a tune-up but no repairs, it’s easier than you think as long as you have the time to do it and you have a good YouTube video to guide you. Go for it, then just take care on the first ride .
Depression doesn’t feel the same for everyone. Just because you’re not feeling it every minute, it doesn’t mean it’s not the case. Instead of guessing, it might be a good idea to talk with someone. Many professionals offer video conference options online so you don’t have to go into the office. You may just be going through a down time be…[Read more]
A lot of strength training workouts that have you doing floor work in the same space as a yoga mat would be fine. Also, have you seen Fitness Marshall? His stuff doesn’t usually need much room at all. Looks like it does, but you’re pretty much staying in place the whole time.
Isn’t that odd. I’ve been switching to decaf in the afternoon, which isn’t something I’ve done before. It’s really getting to us. I hope we can adapt and get our stress levels down soon. This is hard.
Asphalt is softer to run on than concrete sidewalk. It isn’t as hard on the joints and makes for a more pleasant run. Also, you don’t have to keep moving around people who are walking, especially with social distancing.
