Small steps towards healthy you
Many struggled to stay fit during the lockdown as stress also played its part. Not going outside for walks or gym saddened many souls. But slowly we realized it’s not that difficult. Sharing a fun poem that showcases how we can still exercise a bit and stay fit even if we are inside our home. It’s not difficult if we look for solutions instead of problems.
The virus made us vigilant,
The air gave us alert signs,
And soon the human became,
more conscious and more concerned.
We looked at ways to boost health,
Soon realized that’s our only wealth.
The lifestyle underwent a change
and we accepted it one range
We thought about our self
We thought of little help
Loads of water
that too little hotter
drink and even gargle.
Add ginger and garlic,
to save us from getting sick.
Deep breathing and meditation,
we tried to calm frustration.
The gym came inside the home,
as we were not allowed to roam.
stairs for step training,
chair for squatting,
bicycle crunch in the living room,
kneel step walk with a broom,
some extended planks,
few steps to reduce the flank,
Some jumps and some pumps
Some punches and some crunches.
Be a kid and jump around,
Just walk and calm down.
Dance is one such easy simple way.
Or else if you know how to ballet…
Its all about fitness
about ways to reduce stress.
Maintaining a Mindful life
just look, options are rife.
A little time for yoga
time to get up from your sofa
Few minutes for self
even when standing beside that bookshelf
It’s just when you decide
and get going from your bedside.
One fruit and vegetable a day
A handful of nuts also gets the way.
Just small steps towards healthy you
and a happy mindful, I grew.
At home and staying fit doesn’t require to step out every time, as our home is also a wonderful gym. We just need to make use of things and we surely learned this all in the lockdown when everything was closed.
