Get (in) shape
Going to the gym may not be an option, but don’t worry! There are plenty of online communities that will help you get in shape – being right at home. Join groups like Fittr to kick-start home exercises or learn more about nourishing your body with Luke Coutinho. Have a sound body? Then take out the time to declutter and relax your mind with prayer and meditation with Jay Shetty or join your prefered religious groups like Jhandewala Temple online. It’s important to stay active – get the blood flowing to benefit both body and mind.
View the world – virtually
While for our own safety we must avoid crowds, technology offers us a chance to travel virtually! With augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) being accessible through our smartphones and computers, take a virtual holiday! Take a 360° tour of the Pyramids or walk straight into Buckingham Palace or inside a Glowworm Cave in New Zealand.
Things will continue to get better, but until it’s unwise to gather in public places, cherish and make most of your time at home!
