With the entire world going into isolation, it is more important than ever to stay mentally and physically healthy. Here are some ideas that I am implementing daily into my new "isolation" life.
- Create a routine and make it the same every single day to stay motivated and on track. I still wake up at 5 am and walk downstairs, make myself a coffee, grab a glass of water and open my laptop to start working.
- With the rise of home workouts via all social media channels, there is no shortage on the "stay fit at home" front. If you still can't find a tribe, why not join me and Adam on our daily live videos at 7am GMT. We are bringing you a variety of workouts from HIIT, body weight, kickboxing based, yoga based etc. Join me on Instagram or Twitter to learn more.
- Wear the appropriate clothes for the activity you're about to do. If you're working from home, perhaps you should be wearing a similar outfit to the one you would wear at work just to get your mind in the zone. I'm lucky, I get to wear active wear no matter what and with the drop of the recent collection I'm having a variety of workout gear to choose from.
- Bake or make healthy recipes each day. This is your opportunity to finally compete with Jamie Oliver. I've moved to the country side in Norfolk for a while and had to invest a new Ninja blender for my mental wellbeing; planning to make a ton of smoothie bowls, nice creams and other yummy things. You can find all my daily creations on my social media channels @chasingfreedomdaily.
- Speak to family and friends via live chats and hey, I've been watching friends work out via video too. Why not work on a sweat together or even bake something yummy together?
- Take a little moment for mindfulness (meditate or journal daily). I've been journalling for the last year or so and every so often I open my journal at a random page in the past and I instantly smile. There are little nuggets of wisdom from the old me and I really appreciate these little lines written on the pages.
- Learn something you've always wanted to learn. Now's the opportunity you've all been waiting for.
I'm sure I can write 100 more ideas on things to do while you self isolate, but I'm pretty certain you've all nailed it already. So on that note, I wish you good luck and lots of patience. The earth needed to breathe a little and we needed a little head space to stop, take a mental break and reassess "life".
