Has trying to lose weight become more difficult than you thought? Don’t worry, you’re certainly not alone. Many of you may be feeling stuck with the pandemic weight, and no clue as to where to start from. One day you may be exercising and following a healthy diet, and the other day you may have a relapse, back to unhealthy junk food again. At this point of time, appreciate yourself for making an effort. And if you suffer a relapse every now and then, continue the good work by exercising regularly and a healthy diet pattern will eventually follow.

Diet and fitness expert Gunjan, who goes by the name of GunjanShouts on Instagram, recently shared a simple exercise routine, with which you can begin your day. It doesnt require much effort, just a few exercises which you can do, 15-20 minutes after rising.
“Those who can’t spend hours doing workout, atleast do this in the morning. I bet you will have a much better day. I want you to give it a try,” she writes in the caption of her Instagram post while adding that if you can’t do anything else, you can at least do this.
Here are the exercises that you can do:
