Exercising During A State Of Quarantine

Finding Pleasure Outside Your Home

During this state of quarantine, many people are wondering what to do with their free time. Now that society is under a lockdown and gyms have closed, many are scratching their heads thinking to themselves, “Crap . . . I always hated exercising in my home.” But who said anything about turning your studio into a gym? Exercising during a state of quarantine should not be a difficult task.

Just take a look outside your window . . . do you see a street? There you go. That’s where you should go exercise. If there’s a park near your home then that’s even better! Now that it’s spring and the temperature is rising, it’s quite lovely to put on your Apple AirPods and go jogging outside. Forget the treadmill; it doesn’t beat nature.

Just because you’re quarantined does not mean that you have to become paranoid. Leaving your home to exercise is actually really good for your mental health: it helps you to step out of your quarantined state of mind and be free again. Being locked up in your home really emphasizes the feeling that you’re in trouble or have done something wrong; neither is the case.

Exercising in nature really helps to clear your mind and escape the confinement of your house. Allow the fresh air and cool breeze surrounding the trees to guide your way through the park; just float down the paths as the clouds float above your vicinity. Feel the air rushing into your lungs as you increase your pace to the beat bumping in your eardrums.

Don’t become a sloth during these times. That’s exactly what the coronavirus wants you to become: it plays with your sanity by gaslighting you. It wants you trapped in your home so that your mental health can be more easily manipulated by the media, internet and your natural curiosity. With too much time on your hands, you risk falling prey to manipulation.

Exercising helps you dodge the coronavirus’s mental attacks.

  1. Nothing wrong with exercising at home especially when you have a lot of free channels to choose from on the internet. I am a fan of yoga, pilates, HIIT, and Tae Bo myself along with other forms of exercise. I agree, you can’t beat a good hike or walk outside in nature.

    This is also the perfect time to reflect inwards and see how one can better themselves.
