While the circuit breaker dictates that we really must stay at home, that’s no reason to neglect exercise. It might seem preferable to be in couch potato mode, binge-watching movies and gorging on baked creations (yum!), but nobody really wants to develop a circuit breaker belly, and let’s face it—physical health is important, too!
With more time on your hands, 20 or 30 minutes of physical activity everyday is totally possible (and it won’t hurt; if anything, you’ll thank yourself when those endorphins kick in!). We’ve put together a range of effective exercise resources you can access from home during the circuit breaker period.
