One would think that during lockdown you’d be able to exercise more, not less, but not being a particularly active person at the best of times (yes, raise a glass to those of you who are similar) I thought I should get active and make it fun.

I love music and dancing so thought I would try Zumba classes online and it is really a lot of fun:

  • You can dance like no one is watching [well there are step sequences but it depends how fit you are in keeping up – it gets better over time]
  • Does not require a lot of space
  • Gets the cardiovascular system going
  • Tones all the muscles, including your core
  • Helps you de-stress
  • Improves coordination
  • You can do it alone or with someone else
  • It’s great for warming up – particularly on cold winter mornings.

I found myself looking forward to turning up the music and dancing my way through a workout instead of a work out that involves me twisting myself inside-out.

Give it a go – there’s a huge variety of styles and intensities available on YouTube. You have plenty to gain and have fun doing it. Enjoy!

While many of us will have felt overwhelmed or exhausted over the last few weeks, there are a number of red flags listed by BeyondBlue to indicate that you, or someone you know, needs more help.

  • Uncharacteristic behaviour;
  • Getting into a lot of conflict with family, friends or work, can signal you’re overstretched;
  • Making silly mistakes at work;
  • Withdrawing from your world;
  • Massive exhaustion on the weekends;
  • Overly self-critical thoughts;
  • Feelings of depression, hopelessness or worry.

Beyond Blue has a mental health self-checklist, that may provide a good starting point to consider and document your feelings and need for support.
