While gyms up and down the country are definitely missing their members, plenty of us are getting fit at home with a #StayInWorkOut. You can work up a sweat just ordering your gym equipment online. And once you’re all set up, never fear, online workouts are here!
Set up your home gym from Argos.
Pick up an activity tracker in Boots.
Download the fitness app from Anytime Fitness.
Your wellbeing comes first
Holland& Barrett are still open during this time, but if you’re not up for venturing out, you can get 15% off everything on their app.
As well as access to vitamins, health supplements and natural beauty products, you’ll find advice on reducing risk of infection, what to do if you think you have Coronavirus symptoms, and how to keep mentally well if self-isolating on your own. For the latest advice see here.
It may be tempting not to dress up while staying at home, but putting on your usual make-up can contribute to your wellbeing. Have a browse around Boots’ make up range for some inspiration.
Time to get into mindfulness
There has never been a better time to get your head around mindfulness. Different activities work for different people. Some might find yoga relaxing, others painting or colouring in. There is no hard and fast rule, just so long as you take some time out to distract your mind from any day to day worries and anxiety that might create stress.
Here are just a few suggestions – have a go and share the results with us on our social media pages!
Easter activities from WHSmiths.
Screen-free activities for kids from Holland & Barrett.
Crafting ideas from Poundland.
Bathing essentials from Boots.
Lose yourself in a whole range of mIndfulness books from WHSmiths.
We hope to see you back at St George’s Shopping Centre again soon, but in the meantime, please stay safe, keep healthy and stay in touch!
