COVID 19 Interruptions and Excercise

exercise Shidonna Raven Garden and Cook

As we often state, we believe exercise to be one of the 3 pillars of overall health. The other pillars being health (whether or not one is disease free) and diet. So, when the pandemic hit we were in our exercise grove. We felt great and exercise was contributing to our overall health. Then as we all know the pandemic hit. When the pandemic hit many things shut down and the world was forever changed. In Norfolk, VA, USA where we are, many things reopened a few months ago. But, like many others we were slow to venture out and have remained home as much as we can. Many people pivoted and simply exercised at home. Those people, organizations and companies who pivoted and pivoted fast and early were indeed smart. We wish them well as we wish everyone around the globe dealing with COVID 19 well.

We interrupted our exercising and did not exercise at home. However, we did change up our medicinal consumption. Before we were close to the path of healing but something was missing. Now that we have pivoted our medicinal consumption we feel that we are on the right track to healing. Stay tuned for updates on how the healing process progresses for us. We also made some simple changes in our diet based on our overall medical consumption strategy. We are also super happy to be back at the gym and implementing, what we feel is one of the pillars of good overall health, an exercise plan. We are back and with a partner. We both played sports, so we are excited to be exercising and getting physical again.

Despite the interruptions that COVID 19 have caused, not to mention the many illnesses and deaths, we are back stronger and healthier than ever. Did COVID 19 cause you to pivot your daily routines? What do you do at home now or in a different space than you did before COVID 19? What routines are you getting back into? Share your comments with the community by posting them below.

COVID 19 and Venturing Out

exercise Shidonna Raven Garden and Cook

Indeed COVID 19 made the world stand still in many respects. Many states and many countries started opening back up again a few months ago. The United States was among many. Unlike many other ‘developed’ nations the United States remains the leader in COVID 19 cases. We would like to think of ourselves as global leaders, however, this is not quit what was meant by that. Some were eager to re open as closing contributed to the economic hardship of many and caused several businesses large and small to close their doors for good. Nonetheless, venturing out has not been easy as states all over, such as Florida, continue to struggle with spikes in COVID 19 cases. Many states as Governor Northam said, were left to fight a biological war by themselves. Indeed, states were left without a true and clear national COVID 19 plan.

For the most part, we stay home as much as we can. We wear our masks and practice social distancing among other precautions. We have begun to venture out slowly to some of our old routines. In the spirit of good health: the gym is one of them. We first visited our old gym, re toured the facility, and reviewed their COVID 19 health measures. We mapped out our return and exercise plan. After asking a few follow up questions and getting a lay of the ‘new’ land so to speak we started back our old exercise regimen and have begun to work on our physical fitness again: what we believe is one of the 3 pillars of overall health (exercise, health (being disease free) and diet.
