In the past week
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.
Ok, so the gym is out, can’t go to the supermarket as much, not supposed to go to yoga, and pretty much we’re supposed to stay away from each other. What are some good health tips for keeping 7 feet away from each other and not having any gym equipment but still staying well?
It will probably hack into your motivation because it will take a hit on your routine. You might also find that you feel a bit out of practice when you go back, but it won’t be that bad. Unless you’re an athlete, the week likley won’t set you back any more than just feeling rusty.
I always think of getting sick in a diet as putting things on “pause”. It doesn’t count. When you’re sick, do what you need to do to treat yourself right, be healthy and get better. Then, as you heal up, start introducing the things you want to keep in your long term healthy lifestyle for weight control. Remember that it’s not just about the sh…[Read more]
The next time you grocery shop, try to come up with more healthy snacks. Even if it’s things like strawberries and a bit of dark chocolate you can dip them in. Try to get as many options as you can. Then, you don’t need to overcome your depression to snack well. Those are the options you have. Also, take lots of care to focus on your de…[Read more]
It depends on how much you’re putting in the bag. If you’re just carrying a few things, it’s good and better than carrying a handbag on one shoulder. But if you’re adding a lot of heavy things, you’re still better off with two straps on your bag. If you get a sling bag with a hip strap, it can help to redistribute the weight, but mostly if y…[Read more]
I really went for it in the pool the other day and everything was sore the next morning. I felt like I must have run a marathon or something. I’m still not back to my full level, and I’ve been walking every day but I’m afraid of losing my progress. What should I do to keep active while my body is still sore from overdoing it while swimming? Do I…[Read more]
