You can stay fit by any number of ways - ranging from walking on your terrace to push-ups and burpees using indoor surfaces. You can even use YouTube to guide you through Yoga practices.
Wash Hands Regularly
Keep your hands clean as much as possible by washing them regularly. You can also use alcohol based hand sanitizers. If you’re worried about your hands getting dry you can use moisturizers to keep them soft. Also avoid touching your face with your hands as much as possible.
Catch up on your Streaming Series backlog
Whether it's Netflix, Amazon Prime Video or any other streaming service, you’re sure to be behind at least a few episodes in your favourite series online. If you’ve never found time for watching Stranger Things or Ozark, now is the perfect time.
