COVID-19 has been difficult for all of us. Our collective mental health and physical health have been negatively impacted by a world changed by the coronavirus. But the good news is that we’re veterans at this now; we’ve adapted and discovered a number of ways to keep healthy through the pandemic.
Let’s go through some of the best ways to keep physically and mentally fit in these very bizarre times.
Gyms are closed. Pools are closed. The weather is still pretty cold and exercising outside is difficult. In other words, it’s never been harder to keep fit. But that doesn’t mean that it’s impossible!
Home gyms are exploding in regularity. From free weights and dumbbells to punching bags and resistance bands, there’s no end to the number of tools that you can find online and have delivered straight to your door. You can turn your home into your own personal gym and stay fit during COVID-19!
In many cases, you don’t even need anything to get started. There are plenty of online exercise routines that you can do with just your bodyweight. And if you’re someone who prefers to be in exercise groups, there’s a good number of online classes you can join so you can feel connected while working out. Speaking of keeping connected…
This is easier said than done, we know, but with COVID-19 being the ultimate party-pooper, it’s harder now than it’s ever been to maintain your social connections.
That said, there are a variety of ways to preserve your social life. Obviously, checking in on your friends and making sure you can schedule Zoom calls is important to maintaining those important relationships.
Virtual boardgame nights, remote book clubs, or even something as simple as having a video call with someone while you do an art project together (or separately) can do a great job of scratching that social itch. It’s not perfect, but for now, it’ll have to do.
Another great way to keep connected is to volunteer. Many people are in need right now, and lending a helping hand is a great way to feel connected to the people you’re helping while also opening up the opportunity to meet fellow good Samaritans. Just make sure you volunteer in a safe and responsible way by maintaining social distancing, wearing a mask, and continuously sanitizing your hands.
Getting out for walks with friends is a great way to exercise and be social in a way that isn’t unsafe. And depending on the weather, there are plenty of fun activities to do.
Getting outside is also important for our mental health. Even if you just take a short walk on your own to clear your mind and reconnect with nature, the fresh air can help provide more clarity, reduce depression, and improve your mood.
Now more than ever, it’s extremely important to maintain a strong immune system. While the best defense again illnesses and viruses such as COVID-19 is to wash your hands and eliminate the spread, what you put in your body can have a big impact too.
Citrus fruits such as oranges and grapefruits, strawberries, and red bell peppers are chock full of vitamin C, which stimulates the formation of antibodies, while sweet potatoes, spinach, and carrots are high in vitamin A, which staves off infections. Eating a diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables can also boost your mood and reduce inflammation.
Make sure to limit your consumption of sugary foods and beverages since research has shown these foods can contribute to depression and poor mental health. Instead, try to drink at least eight glasses of water each day. Water is necessary for cellular functions and can help relieve headaches, boost your metabolism, improve kidney function, and reduce joint pain.
Now that we’ve covered a few things that will help keep you physically and mentally healthy, let’s go over some products that will make it easier to stay safe (and sane).
If you’re looking to buy protective products, then a nano mist sanitizer sprayer is a great (and cool) option. It can fit any disinfectant you like, from alcohol-based solutions to diluted bleach, and the nano mist sprayer will keep any frequently touched surface safe.
It’s portable and runs on rechargeable batteries, so you can take it anywhere you’d like.
It’s safe to say that the market for personal care products is experiencing a boom right now. The good news is that there are tons of options to keep us safe, primarily face masks.
There have been some nifty innovations as far as mask-wearing goes. This mask, for instance, hangs off the neck when you’re not using it for easy access and comfort.
And then of course, there’s the good ol’ reliables such as reusable cloth masks made from 100% cotton jersey and KN95 disposable masks which filter against 95% of dust, bacteria, and particulates. We’re sure that by now you have your preferences, so load up on your favourites!
