COVID-19 and Making the Most of The Outdoors

May 11, 2020

With Boris Johnson delivering his strategy plan last night, one aspect that he did clarify was that we are able to have longer hours outdoor for exercise purposes. Fair to say members of the public did find the speech somewhat confusing as we are still encouraged to stay at home for everything else. The team at QCS thought it would be useful to shed some light on ways that you can make the most of the outdoors during this pandemic.

Yoga/ Tai Chi

Practising yoga or Tai Chi is beneficial not only for our physical wellbeing, but also our mental wellbeing. Considering we are spending less time doing the things we love in our regular routine, we are now susceptible to feeling anxious, sad or depressed. Parks and recreational grounds having a large space to roam means you can still practice isolation. The weather being sunny can also help with absorbing Vitamin D and boosting serotonin levels! There are various poses you’re able to do to alleviate anxiety and you can even use yoga and Tai Chi to control breathing patterns and maintain a calm mind set.

Cardio

Boris’ exercise encouragement means that we can also utilise space to run and incorporate cardio into your lockdown routine. It’s fair to say many of us have become couch potatoes during lockdown or have used lockdown as an excuse to avoid exercise. Using parks and outdoor space is a perfect way to help with exercising our muscles. Working out outdoors can also allow you to get a fresh supply of oxygen which is crucial for our heart, bones and general blood supply. We need to ensure some cardio or stretches are included in our lockdown routine as this is essential for general health as well as to avoid cramps, fractures and posture problems.
 

These are the main 2 ways we thought we should try and encourage as you can do this both at home as well as outdoors! Below are some links we thought would help encourage you to exercise

These are just some of the ways we can incorporate exercise into our lockdown routine. We hope you can make the most of lockdown remaining fit and healthy. Please ensure you’re still practicing social distancing in public spaces and stay safe!
