In light of the pandemic, many of us are social distancing or self-quarantining. We have lost the normal routine and are spending more time indoors. With the closure of gyms, it is harder for us to exercise and stay motivated to exercise. However, it is important that we stay active eventhough our routines may be restricted. Many people have gained weight due to disrupted routines and increased in stress.
If you want to stay fit, here are 5 ways that you can do to start your journey to having a better body to feel great.
