Simple Things You Can Do Sitting Down if You Feel Guilty for Not Exercising

You don't need to get up!

Online learning means no more commuting to school, wandering around campus, or running from one class to another in hopes of not being late. Now, we're just at home and the only traveling we do is from our bedrooms to the kitchen.

If you thought you weren't physically active before, it's probably worse now that we've got nowhere else to go and are always in front of our computers. The lack of physical activity has been more apparent during quarantine, and it's not exactly the healthiest way of living. Very little physical movement could lead to serious health concerns. When you're on break during online class, sneaking in a little exercise could already help. And you don't even need to get up! Here are a few mini workouts you can try while sitting down:

Finger Lifts

Place your hand on the table, palm facing downwards. Lift up each finger one at a time and repeat.

Ankle Rotation

Extend your leg and lift your foot while seated with your back straight. Rotate your foot in a circular motion. Repeat in the opposite direction.

Neck Rotation

Slowly rotate your head to the left. From facing left, start facing the other direction by slowly rotating to the right. Keep your shoulders relaxed while doing so.

Arm Circles

Extend both arms to the sides, parallel to the ground. Rotate your arms in a circular motion clockwise. Repeat counterclockwise.

Calf Raise

Keep both feet flat on the ground. Start lifting your heels while keeping your toes on the ground, squeezing your calves. Slowly go back to the original position and repeat.

Upper Body Twist

Put your hands behind your head with your elbows pointing upwards. Twist your chest so that you’re slightly facing the left. Slowly twist back to the original position, facing front. Now twist towards the right side.

Seated Marching

Sit up straight and keep your stomach tight. Lift one leg slowly while the other is pushing on the ground. Slowly put the lifted leg down and repeat the same process for the other leg.

Leg Extension

Sit up straight. Slowly lift your lower leg so that your toes are pointing upwards. Slowly go back to the original position and repeat for the other leg.
