As many of us continue to hunker down in our quarantine efforts, some of us might be taking it a little too easy on ourselves when it comes to getting exercise, getting the right amount of sleep (and not oversleeping), and eating healthy foods.
Below, Holmes Chiropractic goes over a few common mistakes people are making with their quarantine routines.
1.) Failing to Hydrate Enough
Drinking half your body weight in ounces of water will help your body run and function properly. Lack of hydration can lead to headaches, irritability, lethargy, exhaustion, and more.
2.) Being a Loafer
Most of us staying at home now have a considerable amount of free time on our hands. It’s important to try to be productive, even if it’s just in small ways. Keep the house clean, meditate, even make some video calls to some loved ones — all those things are better than sitting on the couch binging TV for hours.
3.) Lack of Exercise
It’s important to get 20-45 minutes of exercise in each day, whether it’s a morning walk or a Zoom yoga class you’re attending. Make sure you stay active this time in order to stay healthy.
Take a good look at your routine and see if there are areas where you can improve. Making progress, even if it’s slow, that’s what it’s all about! Contact Holmes Chiropractic for more information about how to boost your COVID-19 defense.
