One of the silver linings of the pandemic has been the growth of the workout at home movement. Prior to the pandemic I was an everyday 6am crossfit box person. Since then I have gradually built up my garage gym to include a few olympic bars, some bumper plates, a wall ball ( which bothers my kids when they are sleeping) some dumbbells and a spin bike.
While not everyone has a garage, there is still plenty of things you can do with a little bit of open space in your house. One of the first things I do every day when I get up is to stretch. To do this all you need is an area large enough to roll out a yoga mat. If you have a space large enough to put a yoga mat then you should be doing something every day.
Regular exercise helps clear your head. It reduces your stress and allows you to cope with everything that comes up in your day. This is in addition to the long list of health benefits. So crack open youtube or find a good fitness app and do at least 20 mintues of movement every day and your body and mind will thank you.
Here is a link to the bodyweight calisthenics program I follow for my stretching. If you are a little bit more adventurous here is a link to crossfit workouts that you can do at home. Remember if you have not worked out in a long time, to first consult your family doctor to make sure you have clearance for physical activity.
