Throughout this quarantine, I have found it increasingly important to take the time to do yoga. I loved ballet class when I was younger, and I enjoyed doing barre as an adult. I do know most of the barre moves so I am able to do them at my own pace. I have started doing barre during the day, or in the evening. Recently, Andrew has joined in on doing barre workouts with me and we do a lot of core strengthening moves.
It’s been about a month now of this stay at home stuff, so I decided to go to my parents and use their treadmill. I did a combination of running and walking. I may go back next week. Then I went home and did some core workouts with Andrew.
In the beginning of this stay at home order, I was working on completing my work for class, and not really feeling up to doing yoga or working out. I was feeling a little burned out but trying to stay focused at the same time. However, once I forced myself to get up and get away from the computer and move a little on my yoga mat, or when I went to a walk. I ended up feeling better.
I think Self-care is so important right now to take the time to step away from the screen and zoom conversations.
