An easy way to stay active in quarantine

🏋🏿‍♀️ Today’s tip: Schedule a workout on your calendar (even if it’s five minutes).

Even in “normal times,” it can be challenging to squeeze exercise into a busy schedule during the week. During a pandemic, it’s tougher by an order of magnitude. But as Elemental senior writer Dana Smith reminds us, both our brains and our bodies benefit from a quick workout. And the trick to making it happen? Treat it like any other time commitment, and put it on your calendar along with all your meetings and appointments.

Whether it’s a quick jog around the block or 25 minutes of this bare minimum workout sequence, Smith points out that “with the cognitive benefits exercise provides, it could be the best thing you do for your job all day.”
