With a lot of people spending more time at home than usual due to Covid-19, we’ve put together 5 ways to keep yourself motivated & positive at home…
- Get plenty of sleep!
Now we are all at home a lot more, it’s the perfect opportunity to catch up on those zzz’s.
In fact, a good night’s sleep will help keep your energy levels flowing & your mind from wandering. So, whether you’re painting that spare bedroom, or working from home, you can do it at 100%.
A fulfilling snooze can also help you avoid those naughty snacks – as lack of sleep can make it more difficult to control your appetite, tricking you into choosing unhealthy foods.
- Go outside
Whether you are leaving the house for a short walk, or enjoying the (unpredictable) sunshine in your own garden – get outside!
Take a break from your oh-so too familiar indoor environment, and wreak the benefits of just being in the outdoors… including improved mental & emotional well-being, reduced blood pressure, and reduced stress hormones.
- Get moving!
From a daily walk, to an online exercise class, as always… get moving! Regular movement burns calories & boosts your energy, as the oxygen flow increases through your body.
Exercise can even improve your mood – those who keep moving tend to feel more content, more aware & calmer after a bit of physical activity! 
- Stay connected
Luckily, keeping in touch with your family, friends & colleagues online has never been easier with the endless digital communications available.
Every now & again, you can even make a real occasion out of it – from Quiz Nights to Digital Brunches, make it your own!
- Eat high-protein snacks
Eating low fat, high protein snacks, like jerky, helps you feel fuller for longer, helping you eat fewer calories.
This makes our protein-packed jerky the ultimate warrior to fight off those naughty, snack-attacks!
