    Default How To Make Yourself Healthy During This Time

    How do you make yourself healthy especially in this current situation? Gyms might be closed again now that there's a spike of covid cases in California.

    Is your area also experiencing a huge increase in covid cases?

    I bought a kettle-bell to exercise at home.

    Of course my area is seeing a huge increase in COVID cases.

    We got most of our gym equipment in 2019 used ( gym machine through an auction and treadmill on Craigslist) and my husband bought an Echelon bike in January. He does live classes 4 days a week. I also ride the bike but I don't do live classes.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I bought these cheap resistance bands and it really did a great job with my workout, not to mention, my hubby has been using this a lot as well during his routines. You might want to consider buying these too on your local market.

    If you're mostly limited to body weight exercises, check out thenx.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    Body weight and dumbells, I'm going to try some fasting and dieting next week onwards, its hard to do at Christmas but I cant get much exercise otherwise. When I go out of the house for a walk there are just too many people milling about in groups of three or more, its all very much contrary to the public health advice and I dont understand it.

    There have also been outbreaks and deaths locally too, including at one local church gathering, which I do not understand at all how that happened other than those congregating honestly, for some reason, believe that none of the advice actually applied to them or that the risks and disease where not real. Crazy and all as that last point is, or ought to be at this point, it IS widespread here. Often it correlates, in my experience at least, with a lot of other views and opinions which are not based on much, or any, of an evidence base but instead count on strong opinions, prejudice and head strong ignorance.

    I am working everyday, sometimes from home, which is not my preference, any more, if it ever really was, and sometimes in the office. So I have had not break or idle time like some have to dedicate to private pursuits, exercise training etc. I also work in a field in which we are seeing increased demand for service, in part because of the pandemic and lockdowns.

    I find it interesting the extent to which these measures and developments have had knock on effects, the supply of illicit drugs and substances is not what it once was, although not as heavily policed or countered by law enforcement in NI as it is ROI where they have had far, far greater successes and are now even being given additional powers to pursue white collar and financial crime (its all largely the same gangs involved). Its good to hear about these poisons being taken out of the community but the people who are the main users turn their hands to other sorts of crime, usually, and that and the shortage of drugs amongst those who use them the most, ironically, translate into demand for public services too.

    I take a lot of dance classes. It makes it more fun than repetitive exercise. I have a goal of taking one every night but end up with four a week, sometimes five. I also go on a lot of walks.

    I gave up drinking. Water. I now absorb all of the dihydrogen monoxide I require straight through my flesh via ambient osmosis.
