As many of us move towards self-isolation and facilities around us shut up, it is becoming important to take care of our health by being active.

Why to quit your fitness regime if you are self-quarantined? See how Shipra is managing to stay fit.

So it’s been a couple of days for me in self-isolation now and frankly speaking, it’s not so bad. I’m trying to keep myself motivated and active. I don’t have a big room, but this space is sufficient for me to do some basic exercises. I don’t know how you guys are coping and how you’re keeping yourself fit. But do share your stories and videos with me!

So, how do I transform my room into a little gym?
There’s enough space for me to do basic workouts and I have some equipment as well that I can put to good use. And so, yeah, let’s begin. Let me give you a quick tour of my little gym. It’s not that fancy, but it’s good enough for me. I have dumbbells, ankle weights, step-up, and a very heavy kettlebell. Also, I put my yoga mat to good use for many exercises. Now, let me show you how I work out:

Meditation is lifting weights for the mind
My favourite exercise is meditation–which is exercise for the mind. I think it’s very important-as important as physically working out my body

So guys that was a sneak peek into my workout routine from home. It’s not very elaborate but it’s better than doing nothing and just, uh, feeling guilty about not going to the gym. So I hope you guys are keeping active and walking around the house and doing whatever you can to stay healthy and fit.
