If you’re finding it hard to stay active while at home during the current climate, then you’re not alone!
Many people have definitely felt less motivated to be physically active due to their usual exercise routines being interrupted. But there is good news! Staying at home presents a unique opportunity to get creative with your physical activity. Perhaps it’s the perfect time to begin making new movement habits, or maybe it means forming new ideas and opinions about how you view exercise. It might even be the perfect opportunity to start that journey to weight loss and better health.
During “normal” life the biggest barrier to physical inactivity is lack of time. Amongst the busyness of work, family, socialising, or looking after a home and other little humans, exercise often doesn’t rate highly on the priorities list. But all of a sudden, we’ve been forced back into our homes, meaning that our weekends have freed up, we aren’t spending time commuting to work each day and we have a bit more flexibility with how we use our time.
Another barrier to inactivity is not knowing where to start! Dr Google, Instagram influences and other online resources can inform you on a number of things, but more often than not, you end up overwhelmed and uninspired. Gyms, pools and indoor recreational centres are currently closed so where can we look for guidance?
