We all know that Los Angeles is a very active city. Everywhere you go you see people jogging and there are plenty of gyms and fitness studios in most neighborhoods. However, our exercise routines have been affected by the current coronavirus outbreak in most situations. Gyms and fitness studios were forced to close down temporarily, people are told to avoid crowded hiking trails, and most are advised to stay in and not go outside. The good news is that the World Health Organization has released a guide to stay physically active during the quarantine. Here are a few of their suggestions on how to exercise at home.
Take Active Breaks During the Day
It’s important to make sure that you don’t become too sedentary during your quarantine. In order to maintain a healthy lifestyle, it’s important to be at least a bit active. That’s why short active breaks during the day are important to maintain. The World Health Organization suggests activities such as dancing, playing with children, and performing chores (such as gardening or cleaning) that require some sort of physical effort.
Find Online Classes to Exercise at Home
Plenty of fitness institutions, given the fact that they are unable to operate in person, are providing online resources to help people keep themselves active during this quarantine. You can find them for free online too, if you don’t attend a specific fitness facility. However, when you are exercising by yourself, you need to be careful. Be aware of your own limitations and prevent any sort of injuries.
Stand Up and Walk
Even just walking can be a way to exercise and remain active during your quarantine. Even if you are walking in small spaces, such as your apartment, or walking on the spot, you can still avoid remaining too stagnant. You can also go out to walk or exercise in open spaces as long as you exercise prudence. Always go by yourself or with members of your household and avoid touching over-touched surfaces and maintain a distance of at least six feet between you and other people.
