With the COVID19 pandemic spreading around the world, more and more people have begun following the general advice to socially distance.

Social distancing refers to the practice of maintaining distance from others—not just the six-foot radius to reduce contamination, but social distance by avoiding places (such as bars, restaurants, cinemas, malls, and supermarkets) where you could come in contact with the virus.

For the near future, people are being smart to “shelter in place”—spending more time indoors, avoiding going out as much as possible. This may seem like a hard pill to swallow, but the truth is that you can still thrive and love life while in quarantine.

Here is our simple, effective guide to getting and staying healthy now that you’re at home more. Besides, by following these steps, you will naturally fortify the four pillars of your immune system and protect yourself from the virus, which is what we all want, right?

Step 1: Solve Your Exercise Problem.

For gymgoers, being told to stay indoors is going to be a BIG problem. After all, if you’re indoors all day long, how are you supposed to get a kickass workout?

Simple: build your own home gym!

It’s actually a lot easier than you’d think. You can get fancy with big home gym equipment—bench press, pull down machine, leg station, treadmill, stationary bike, and the list goes on—or you can keep it simple and just stick with a few dumbbells (especially adjustable dumbbells) and kettlebells. Heck, you can even focus on bodyweight workouts that don’t need any kind of weights!

You’ll need a room in your house with enough cleared space to work out. If you don’t have a room like that, maybe it’s time to clear out your garage, basement, or storage room. That’s a workout in itself, and it will help you free up space enough to get your daily workout.

You’ve got the setup, you’ve got some equipment, now what?

Easy: let Zonia help push you to your limits with our amazing workout videos!

Step 2: Improve Your Meal Quality

You’re stuck at home, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to binge-eat junk food or order takeout every day. In fact, you’ll need to overly emphasize healthy eating—not just because of your reduced daily activity, but to keep your immune system strong to protect you from the virus.

Yes, that means cooking for yourself, and making healthy meals. Think that’s easier said than done?

Not with Zonia!

Step 3: Relieve Stress and Find Your Happy

Let’s be honest: this is a stressful time for everyone.

Maybe you’re stuck at home, not able to work because your office closed down until the pandemic passes. Maybe you’ve had to tap into your limited savings to make ends meet. Maybe you have a loved one in the hospital with the virus, or you’re sick and worried that it could get worse.

Anxiety and stress can negatively impact your health, and it can make this time locked indoors a whole lot worse. It’s vital that you do what you can to look for positivity in your life and manage your stress.

Step 4: Improve Your Sleep

Sleep quality plays a critical role in your immunity. A good night's sleep will boost your body's natural defenses and make you more resistant to disease. And, no big surprise, insufficient sleep will lower your immunity and make you more susceptible to infections--not just COVID19, but common colds, coughs, and the flu.

That's why it's vital that you sleep well at night!

Start with a relaxing evening routine that helps you wind down before bed. Go to sleep at the same time every night and wake up at the same time every morning. Your body will have an easier time resting when you follow a sleep schedule.

Sleep in a cool, dark, quiet room, and avoid bright lights and loud sounds before bed.

Above all, find ways to relax, quiet your anxieties, and calm your mind at night so you can sleep more easily.

Zonia can help with this last pillar as well.

Our video catalogue includes guided sleep stories that will help you relax and fall asleep at night. Life Stories from My Grandpa will take listeners on a journey to different countries and places for magical adventures while they gently fall asleep.

This is going to be a difficult time for everyone, and no one will be immune from the stress, worries, and anxieties of the next few weeks or even months.

Exercise, eating healthy, caring for your mental and spiritual wellbeing, and sleeping better will be critical in the days to come.
