It can be difficult to stay motivated to lead a healthy lifestyle when you can’t leave the house. This is a particularly stressful time of year for students, with deadlines and exams approaching, and with so much uncertainty in the news.\r\nBut staying healthy is far from impossible, with more ways than ever to keep mentally and physically fit whilst remaining inside your house.\r\nWe will be revealing some of the best ways to keep your mind and body healthy during this time, as well as hearing what several students have to stay about how they’re staying healthy.\r\nKeeping your body healthy\r\n\u0026nbsp;\n \n \n \n \n \n \n \r\nTry a home workout video\r\nThe\u0026nbsp;NHS recommends\u0026nbsp;at least 150 minutes of exercise per week to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to stay fit in the safety of your own home.\r\nHome workout videos are definitely on the rise, with many fitness brands, such as Gymshark and Les Mills offering free home workouts on their apps.\r\nHere are just a few home workouts that you can try for free today:\r\nJoe Wicks’ ‘P.E With Joe’\r\nJoe Wicks is uploading free weekly HIIT workouts on YouTube to help users get stronger, healthier and stay active.\r\nDavina McCall\u0027s \u0027Own Your Goals\u0027 online training \r\nWith 15 years of experience of making online workout videos, Davina McCall is now offering a 30-day free trial, with a variety of workouts available to try, including HIIT, boxing, yoga, cardio, strength training, core training, dance and Pilates.\u0026nbsp;\r\nLes Mills On Demand\r\nLes Mills on Demand are temporarily offering free at home workouts with access to over 100 of their most well-known workouts, including BODYPUMP, BODYCOMBAT, LES MILLS GRIT and BODYATTACK.\u0026nbsp;\r\nGymshark’s conditioning home workout appGymshark have made their conditioning home workout app free for users. The app offers five, three- and one-day workout plans, with HIIT training and full body workouts for beginners and experts alike.\r\nReduce eye strain from screens\r\nWith many universities now making the switch to online learning following government lockdown measures, students are using screens to complete their university work.\u0026nbsp;\r\nWe spoke to Dhruvin Patel, a leading optometrist and founder of\u0026nbsp;Ocushield, who explains how students can reduce the strain on their eyes whilst using screens: “Ensure the height and level of the screen is five to six inches below the watching level,” he says.\r\nPatel also recommends limiting exposure to harmful blue light through the screen; “Make sure to look away from the screen for at least 20 seconds every 20 minutes.”\r\nAnother good way to reduce this glare is to “keep the display away from overhead lighting or windows, using window blinds, low wattage light bulbs or anti-glare filters”, he says.\r\nPatel says by doing these things, students will reduce the chance of contracting ‘Computer Vision Syndrome’ which may cause dry eyes, fatigue, irritation, burning, itching, headaches, eye spasms, as well as lowering your mood, lessening productivity and leading to chronic sleep disturbance.\r\nKeeping your mind healthy\r\n\u0026nbsp;\n \n \n \n \n \n \n \r\nPractice yoga and mindfulness\r\nYoga is a great way to relax your mind as well as getting in a great workout. To get some tips, we spoke to yoga teacher and enthusiast, Hester Jones, who is studying a masters in creative writing and publishing at Bournemouth University.\r\nJones says she recommends trying some online yoga classes, particularly Yoga with Adrienne’s 30-day yoga challenge. “She has a very gentle and engaging approach and is one of the leading YouTube teachers out there.”\r\nFor those looking to start yoga, Jones recommends purchasing a yoga mat, although this is not essential, “you could start on a rug or a blanket”. She says to wear something comfy and stretchy, such as yoga pants or leggings and a t-shirt.\u0026nbsp;\r\nShe recommends doing yoga in the morning before breakfast “It can really set you up for the day and help calm the mind, focus and concentrate” as well as reducing anxiety.\r\nSo how often should you do yoga? Jones recommends every day. “Even 10 to 15 minutes every day is better than one hour once a week,” she says. “Start with a short class and build up to a longer class if it suits you.”\r\nDo whatever makes you feel relaxed\r\nGrace Williams, a multimedia journalism student at Solent University, says that she tries to keep mentally healthy by keeping herself preoccupied, by cleaning and doing puzzles.\r\nShe says “Mostly I’m doing what I feel comfortable with, whether that’s eating what I want or lounging on the sofa watching a TV series. All victories for me are worthy at the minute.”\r\nGrace says limiting her exposure to the news helps her to stay calm, but she makes sure she doesn’t miss anything important “I am notified by the BBC News app with important breaking news on my phone.”\r\nRead more about Covid-19\r\nCoronavirus Student Hub\r\nEverything Students Need to Know About the Novel Coronavirus\r\nConfused About Coronavirus?
