Perhaps the biggest danger that we are exposed to, even more than getting sick, is gaining weight during the lockdown. People who used to live an otherwise active life are now limited to their couches. Scrolling down your phones for funny videos, tutorials and cooking recipes may seem a healthy choice but unnecessary munching can definitely lead to a weight gain which you certainly don’t want. So what’s the solution?
Here, we have them listed for you.
You Can Be What You Eat!
While you are not allowed to go out and eat all that junk, you must also take this opportunity as a blessing to stick to a healthy eating routine. Although you can eat as much as you want while you are in home, you can always keep healthy options around. A snack could be a banana, low-fat fruit yogurt, fresh berries and smoothies, and of course, grilled veggies and chicken. After all, what’s the use of all those recipes you spend time on?
Workout Isn’t Banned
If you are about to give an argument about your gym being closed, don’t even think about it. Of all those videos that you watch all day long, around 30% are of home workouts. With no equipment, no special accessories, you can always turn your apartment into a gym. In fact, there are trainers that are doing live sessions of their workouts just for you lazy people.
And the best part, if one thing doesn’t work for you, you can always pick the other one. If jumping is not your thing, go for a long impact. If you don’t like HIIT, go for yoga. The choices are unlimited and you can even modify according to your own lifestyle as well.
Clear Your Mind
Do you ever talk to yourself? If you think your answer in yes will make you sound crazy, you are wrong!
We are all humans and humans make errors all the time. But the one who understands which one should not be repeated is the smart one. So talk to yourself, not loud necessarily but analyze what’s happening and what is your role to change the things that you don’t quite approve. Every morning do one good deed, even if it’s taking care of yourself, cleaning your room, reshuffling your kitchen, whichever floats your boat is just best.
Staying organized and self-assessed is also important. If you are eating healthy, track the results. Your skin will look better, you will begin to feel active and stand on that weighing scale every other week and track your progress. This is the time you need motivation, and what else is a better motivation than getting fit?
All of these things will not only improve your focus but will also give you mental clarity.

And one thing that we don’t want you to do is gain weight during the lockdown, so act upon our tips and see how much you can benefit them.
