5 tips for getting moving
Some things don’t change, like the way exercise can help with your glucose control (and your sense of accomplishment). Here are some great ways to fit it in right now:
Rethink your old commute time. Pre-pandemic, did you spend time commuting every morning and evening? Why not use those slots for a head-clearing walk to start and end your workday?
Find virtual exercise buddies. Use video platforms to connect with friends and work out together. Not only does it make you accountable, but you can get in some catch-up time too.
Set a timer to get up and move. Program your phone or watch to prompt you to do things like jumping jacks, push-ups, or going up and down stairs.
Go online with your favorite trainers. Many are now offering virtual workouts that you can do from home with little or no equipment. Check social media for details.
Head outside for some fresh air. When you’re going stir-crazy, nothing feels better than a hike, jog, or bike ride. Note your state’s orders, wear a mask if around others, and keep up your social distancing.
