Yoga: You don’t need a yoga studio membership to practice yoga. Ancient men in India did not do hot-yoga, nor did they work under a trainer. Buy a book if you must, and start doing yoga all by yourself.
- Pick a quiet place for daily meditation. After a few minutes of meditation, start stretching your limbs and conduct yoga kriya.
- Maintain a daily routine for having full benefits of the postures.
- If you are finding some postures too hard to do, by all means, skip those yoga positions. Only experts who have agile body movements can perform some of those yoga postures.
Outdoor Adventures: Man is curious by nature and to fulfill his curiosity, he has travelled far. You are stuck at home for way too long, and this is the perfect time to have a little out outdoor adventure.
- Mountaineering is a great way to validate your adventurous spirit. If you believe that you have what it takes to survive the wilderness, there is nothing better than going out on a trip to mountain climbing. Before embarking on such a journey, keep in mind that months of preparations and prior planning is needed.
- Kayaking: If you crave for a water sport, you might go for kayaking which is a great way to get your daily dose of exercise. Kayak exercise will help build upper body muscles and also burn the unnecessary fat in your body.
- Daily biking: Get your bike out and hit the road. Biking daily helps the heart rates go up, making you sweat a lot. Try and ride uphill with your bike as it will push you to go further with your exercising routine.
Games: Exercises need not be a solo act. Group activities, such as games and sports, burn a lot of calories and are highly recommended.
