5 Tips for making it through iso!

Not sure how you’re going to get through this period stuck at home and social distancing? Here’s my TOP 5 TIPS (disclaimer: I’m just a personal trainer – these are things that work for me – I can’t guarantee success for everyone)
Have a shower and put some pants on. Now I thought that everyone just did this automatically – however it’s come to my attention that because people aren’t going out, they think that this is no longer necessary – it is! Get dressed, brush your teeth and you hair as if you were going out.
Get your exercise in! Of course I’d say that… but it’s true isn’t it? You can join Hiscoes @ Home, we have HIIT, Pilates, Yoga and a few other things, check out our timetable.
Take a walk. Yes that’s it. Get outside in the fresh air. Daily walking has many advantages including cognitive enhancement, stress reduction and overall improvement of wellness. Since walking is low intensity and impact, it can help speed up recovery too! Plus there’s the added benefit of not sitting in a chair for 8 hours straight…
Limit your media intake. Of course it’s important to stay informed but do you really need to be checking the latest news every hour? Set some boundaries for yourself on this and stick to them. Too much information can lead to even more stress and anxiety. Instead use media for fun and to connect with friends and family.
Limit your alcohol intake. It pains me to say this one, but it is true. I don’t think I need to go into all the details about why drinking less is better for you, I’m sure you already know – but waking up with a hangover is so much more depressing than waking up without one! A clear head in the morning means you can set a couple of achievable goals to do during the day and go to bed feeling satisfied!
