Parents having trouble managing their kids, couples having to spend additional time together and well in some cases domestic helps being asked to take paid leaves as a precautionary measure. This has made every household nothing short of the Bigg Boss one. Jokes apart, this is actually a good time to bond with family members, share the load of household chores and revisit older, simpler times.

Staying at home doesn’t mean you skip exercise. Yes, we know more workout places are shut but let’s get creative. For this, YouTube could be your best friend! Try some yoga asanas for a great morning kickstart or then go for a jog on your building terrace. Ensure that you go at a time when there are fewer people. The world has moved to virtual reality and a lot of dance, music and zumba classes have started taking place over the web. Check them out. There are several apps that can assist you in home exercises. So, what are you waiting, start those jumping jacks now!
