Social distancing due the coronavirus
lockdown has forced most of you to work from home. It is important that you stay indoors during the coronavirus outbreak as it will help flatten the curve. But, working from home might increase the chances of you gaining weight. This might happen as you are relaxed, enjoying home cooked food and are confined indoors. This change in lifestyle can be a major cause of worry if you gain too much weight.
Here are some amazing tips to not gain weight amidst the coronavirus lockdown:
- Drink plenty of water while working from home. Instead of eating excessively it is better to have some water. It is a healthy practice and it will also help you to remain hydrated during the summer season. It will also help you manage your weight.
- Stay focused on your work, so that you do not eat unnecessarily just because of boredom.
- Take regular breaks and walk around in your house, chit-chat with your family members to refresh your mind.
- Make an exercise routine and follow it diligently.
- Do some chair exercises like stretches, which will help you relax.
- Have a balanced diet and eat healthy.
- Do all the household chores daily. In the absence of maids during the lockdown, you should clean your house daily, do the dishes and also wash your clothes. This is one of the best way to ensure that you do not put on much weight.
- Follow a different exercise regime every day, so that you do not get bored of doing the same exercises daily.
- Do not stock up much junk or unhealthy foods, as you will be tempted to eat more if you have stored more.
- Read books to divert your attention from unnecessary and unhealthy eating.
- Take online dance/zumba lessons, so that you learn something new and also lose weight in the process.
- Pick up a hobby and spend your leisure days making creative things. This will divert your attention from any sort of boredom and laziness.
We hope that you stay fit and healthy during the coronavirus lockdown and also maintain your weight.
