Being an adult in today’s modern world can be difficult at times. Covid is still a looming threat, and because of that, the way that people navigate everyday life is changing. The days of waking up early and rushing to make it to the office by nine are gone, and the era of working from home and staying inside has arrived. 

Many companies have even decided to allow their employees to continue working from home after the pandemic because they find it to be so beneficial! While working from home is amazing for preventing the spread of covid and helping maintain a good work-life balance, there are a few drawbacks.

 A lot of people are finding it hard to remain active and make time for exercise now that they stay inside for the majority of their day. It’s important to remain active in some way because, without it, one can experience weight gain, diminished flexibility, muscular atrophy, and general aches and pains. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to get quality physical activity throughout the day!

Online Exercise:

Now that people are avoiding the gym and each other, there is more exercise-related content being put on the internet than ever. There are copious YouTube videos that are meant to guide one through a specific exercise or workout routine. From yoga and pilates to dancing or calisthenics, a google search can help anyone find the workout that fits them! If guided videos don’t seem appealing, there are usually workout routines other people have put together in written format that can be followed.

Stretching:

Stretching is something that may seem small but can have a big impact. After being sedentary for too long, the body can start developing aches and pains from not being used enough. One of the specific areas that suffer from aches and pains the most are the joints. Stretching right before sitting and immediately after standing can be an easy way to get some movement in throughout the day and maintain some flexibility. Stretching also helps relieve joint pain that can occur from being inactive for too long.

Make sure to be mindful of the space when doing home workouts; this can help prevent injury or damage to the home.
