Keeping Up Your Wellness During COVID-19

COVID-19

COVID-19 is new territory for all of us, causing stressors that didn’t exist in a pre-COVID-19 world. And let’s face it, staying on track with wellness during times like these can be extremely difficult. But that doesn’t mean that your progress has to go to waste. Let your wellness be the constant in a world full of variables using these tips and tricks. 


Establish a routine

Creating lifestyle consistency is one of the best ways to get back into your wellness routine. Wake up, eat, exercise, and go to sleep at the same time each day. Establishing a routine helps us stay on track with goals because it adds structure to our day, leaving less room for unplanned snacks and more room for treating your body with the respect it deserves. While it’s easy to feel out of control, setting a routine allows you to focus on what you can control: your wellness. Over time, your routines will form into habits, making it easier to consistently commit to a healthy lifestyle in this new normal.


Plan your meals

With the pantry five feet away all day (every day), it’s easy to sneak snacks here and there that seem to be insignificant. However, added together, these snacks can put a real dent in your hard-earned progress. Plan your meals in advance with fruits and vegetables mixed into each meal, so that when you’re hungry, you reach for an apple instead of that tempting snickers bar. 

With limited trips to the grocery store, we know it can be tricky to get those nutritious foods your body craves. Here are some fresh and healthy foods that keep for a good period of time when refrigerated:

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Oranges
  • Apples
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Kale
  • Squash 
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Broccoli
  • Pomegranate

Take advantage of technology and the great outdoors

Fitness studios are closed, but that doesn’t mean you have to stop your fitness regimen -- you simply have to rework it a little. Plan small walks throughout the day. Trust us, they’ll add up and you’ll be back to taking 10,000 steps a day in no time. 

If you’re looking for a little variety, or if the weather is poor, online fitness studios all over the world are posting virtual and on-demand exercise classes online. Here are a few great free ones to get you started:

Remember, with these tips in mind and the right focus, you can add wellness back into your lifestyle. These are unprecedented times, so be kind to yourself while getting back on track.
