WHILE you can’t go to the gym or play team sports, consider these tips from exercise physiologist Lindsy Kass:
:: Your weekly exercise quota – 150 minutes of moderate exercise such as brisk walking or dancing, or 75 minutes of running – can be broken up into 10-minute chunks to make it more manageable.
:: Incidental exercise counts, too, from housework to hanging out the washing. For a more vigorous workout, try skipping – if you prefer to follow an instructor, there are lots of free fitness videos on YouTube.
:: Stretching is just as important as exercise, particularly if you are working at home on a computer. Take breaks every hour, move about and perform gentle stretches, such as lifting your arms as if you are trying to touch the ceiling. Stretching your shoulders – by pulling them back and imagining you’re trying to hold a pencil between your shoulder blades for 10 seconds – will help counter that hunched-over screen position.
