Today, all around the world, the story is the same. Stay at home and protect yourself. Social distancing measures have gone into effect in almost every city, and the streets are empty. This isn't because people generally don't like one another (although that is a point that could be made). Rather, it's because we're all trying to stop the spread of Covid-19, a kind of coronavirus.

Unsurprisingly, many people are finding social distancing measures difficult. It can be difficult to stay indoors for long periods, and it's easy to fall into the trap of putting on weight during that period. However, there are a few steps that you can take to avoid this.

Make Exercises A Part Of Your Routine

We all love routines (okay, that's not true. I absolutely hate routines). Routines make things easier for us. They help us keep to time and they help us complete our jobs quickly. Another reason why routines are amazing is that they give some semblance of order to our lives.

Once an activity becomes a routine, we barely think of it before doing it. Once you make exercising a few minutes after waking up a routine, you'll find it easier to do and get over with. With more movement and agility, you'll certainly find the time indoors to be easier than you envisioned.

Eat Healthy Food

A lot of people tend to forget that eating good food is one of the easiest ways to stay fit and keep a good immune system. In fact, if there was a choice between something else and eating healthy food, I'd take healthy food. This includes taking of the right supplements to keep a very good immune system.

The easiest way to put on weight and get out of shape during your stay at home is to eat with reckless abandon. If you don't have a diet, try to make one up. Make sure to eat plenty of vegetables, avoid canned food and eat a lot of fiber.

Stretch, A Lot

One of the easiest ways to improve your posture, flexibility, and generally maintain great health is through stretching. Staying mobile and limber is the key to keeping fit. What's more, Simple Yoga poses such as the Cobra and Butterfly would do wonders to your gait.

Keep It Short

It's better to do little bits of exercise every day than to dedicate two hours to hardcore vigorous exercising. Now, I'm not saying it's bad to exercise vigorously for long. All I'm saying is that that method may burn you out quicker than you expected. A safer method would be to take things slow and just ease yourself into it.

Getting The Right Furniture is important

Staying fit and healthy is a matter of the tools at your disposal as much as it is about your willpower. There are definitely some products that would make your job of staying fit significantly easier. Take, for example, this All-in-One Desk Bike.

With this bike, you'll be able to exercise while working, keep a good blood circulation and boost your immune system. These things can be just what you need to beat the Coronavirus.

You can cycle off while typing that email, or while making that spreadsheet. Importantly, the All-in-one desk bike also works as a standing desk. This means that you could even go on with the job while standing.

Why would you ever want to work while standing, you may ask? Well, the answer is simple really. Sitting in one position for long, especially if you're doing it with bad posture, can be bad for your spine. Standing upright for short periods of time during the day can do your back a lot of good.

If you follow these five tips, you're certain to spend your time indoors as fit and healthy as you could ever be. And isn't that what we all want?
