Cherie Conversation: At Home Wellness
As a Chinese girl who is now studying in Australia and also has the certification from the American Council on Exercise as a personal trainer, I think this week's new topic is absolutely designed for me. And now I'm gonna talk to you about the wellness at home during this special period, and share some effective protection measures about the Novel Coronavirus from the Chinese experience. I was in China for my summer holiday from January to march, which was the worst time for covid-19 there. It was quite dangerous and irresponsible to go to the gym(enclosed space and crowded with people) or go running outside then. And I don't think anyone would wear a mask while running outside, which was obviously not in compliance with the government regulations. Since covid-19 patients may not have any symptoms for 1-2 weeks after infection, they could already infect others before they realize that. In other words, you would never know whether the "healthy" person you encountered has already been infected by covid-19 and whether they could infect you. Considering the worst situation, I chose to buy a home elliptical machine and did aerobic exercise at home. Apart from that, I also bought a yoga mat and several yoga bricks to do some self-weight training at home. Moreover, I purchased a Nintendo's Switch and the popular switch game "Ring FIT Adventure", which completely integrates exercise into the fun game. Even if you don't have any fitness knowledge, you can still enjoy yourself and achieve your fitness goal! There are a lot of fitness movements in this game, allowing you to complete your training in the process of breaking through the levels. I really recommend this game to all of you guys!! Back to mid-march, I returned to Melbourne, intending to continue my graduate courses. Sadly, as the covid-19 in Australia started getting worse, residents in Australia were required to stay at home and minimize unnecessary outings. That means I still couldn't go out and have to exercise at home. Given that Australia would not be a long-term place for me to live, it seems unnecessary to buy large fitness equipment such as elliptical machines. So I decided to give up aerobic training during this time. Promise me, do not go to the gym or go out for jogging at a time like this. Compared with the aerobic training interruption for a while, we should be responsible to ourselves, others, and our hometown! Although I dropped the thought of the aerobic training, the self-weight exercise on yoga mat can still continue by, for example, using some big bottles of water as the dumbbell. If you never go to the gym before, and have no idea of how to training, I can recommend some good fitness app for you, like seven, workout for women, 30 day fitness, 8fit and so on. Some need to pay, while others are free of charge. You can pick the one that makes you feel great to complete your home training goals. 🙆🏻♀️Tl;dr 👉🏻Elliptical machine: suitable for reducing weight and strengthen cardiopulmonary function, but the price is high 👉🏻Switch Ring FIT Adventure： Ideal for fat burning, highly entertaining, most recommended, not too expensive 👉🏻Self-weight training： The most cost-effective way of home wellness and suitable for everyone. All you need is a yoga mat, and you can follow the fitness app to complete your exercise. Finally FYI, everyone should wash their hands frequently and go outside as less frequently as possible. If you must go out, remember to wear a mask to protect yourself and others. Sincerely, I hope everyone can stay safe. Best wishes.❤️
SUPPORT SMALL BRANDS!!!
we always spend so much money on the most expensive types of make up and skin care 😭 but why would we do that when small brands offer similar quality products at a fraction of the price! as beauty lovers, it is our job to support them because all brands start small before they get big! we have to encourage each other in this community ;) so today I’m going to lift up Heru Cosmetics! they are such a lovely brand with such unique products ranging from lip glosses to mock designer scarves! their products are well priced and have 4 to 10 ingredients so you know exactly what’s going into your body! please drop them a follow on Instagram 💕 i’m going to start supporting more small brands on here so we can all help each other out during this difficult time! sephora and ulta are doing fine right now because we are all at home placing online orders! it’s the smaller businesses that are struggling to make ends meet and if we’re going to be placing online orders that we might as well support some smaller people!!!
