5 Easy Ways to Stay Active

5 Easy Ways to Stay Active

We all know that health and fitness are important aspects of a good lifestyle. Not only do they help maintain the quality of life, but they also boost one’s confidence, self-esteem, and so much more. However, with the pandemic shifting most activities indoors and at home, staying active can pose a challenge to some people. Here are 5 easy ways to stay active wherever you are. 

Jog in Place 

Yes, you may look weird to your housemates or neighbours, but jogging in place is the most convenient way to sweat at home, where space is limited. This activity will increase your heart rate, improve your cardiovascular fitness, and help you be more agile and active. Give this a go for 30 minutes at home and feel the difference. 

Yoga or Pilates

With yoga and pilates, you only need the space of a mat. If you’ve done yoga or pilates before, try moving intuitively – meaning, listen to the body and follow the natural flow of it. However, if this is your first time, it would be beneficial to watch an online video to guide you through the session. After getting the hang of it, you can try flowing intuitively. 

High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

HIIT consists of a short burst of high-intensity movements, along with periods of recovery and lower-intensity movements. This will elevate your heart rate much faster than activities such as jogging, walking, and swimming. Sprints can be programmed as a HIIT. At home, if dumbbells or free weights are available, this can be turned into a strength HIIT. However, doing bodyweight HIIT is already an effective way to stay active. 

Dance Tutorials

With the many wonders of the internet, online tutorials are readily accessible. When it comes to dancing, it takes time and practice to get it right, which is why watching a dance lesson can be helpful in your journey to becoming a dance master. Not only that, but dancing also burns calories comparable to jogging and running. 

Self-Defence Lessons

We think everyone will benefit from understanding how to defend themselves when people with ill intentions attack or pose a threat to our safety. The good news is that basic self-defence patterns can be found online. Obviously, if you’re looking to master a specific self-defence art, then you should probably look for an offline school.
