Ok, we got it, we need to stay home to help with the coronavirus pandemy but after going through almost all your Netflix watch list, what is there to do? I’ve found a few ideas that will help you make the best out of this situation.

Exercise

Exercising is important, especially when you are confined to a small place and you are stressed out about the news on the coronavirus crisis. Let’s face it there is just so many rounds you can do in your house or apartments. But lucky us, we are in the digital era and exercising has never been so easy. Here’s so of my favorite channels:

She has been doing her classes for a few years now and you will have plenty of materials to go through. The fun part is that she has a lot of different 30 days challenges that will allow you to experiment with yoga.

Pamela Reif's work out - No words of encouragement but you will feel it in your body

Perfect for the people who hate when the instructor is talking, straight to the point, you’ll get a music, a chronometer and the name of the move you’ll be making.
