In the last days all our routines have changed. From the ones we did every day, like going to work in a certain place, to the ones we did every once in a while during the week, like going to the gym, the pool or our rehabilitation center.

Despite the exceptional situation we are experiencing,  psychologists, trainers and health specialists recommend maintaining the same daily routines  that we did until just before quarantining: showering, dressing to telework, eating three to five times a day and of course  exercise . 

In the same way that in our home we prepare a place to sleep or work,  we recommend that you look for a space , no matter how small, in which you can exercise. You don’t need a lot of space, just enough to unfold a mat, for example, near a wall, so you can get a few minutes of exercise a day.

It is true that we may not be able to perform exactly the same exercise, during the same time and with the same intensity as when we went to the gym, but it is important, as little as possible, to  move a few minutes a day . And the more the better. 

What kinds of simple exercises can you do at home?  

  • Stretches . They are your main ally these days. It is the minimum movement that your body needs to maintain elasticity. 
  • Push-ups : You can do them on the floor, but also supporting the arms on the bed.
  • Abs : There are many different types. Try doing those you already did in the gym. 
  • Jump rope : To do this you will need a little more space, but not much more. Make sure there are no lamps or tall furniture, such as bookshelves, that can interrupt the path of the rope above your head.
