I had been so busy; I never made it to the local YMCA to work out. Several years ago, I designed my home Yoga practice because I had received my 200-hour certification. I had planned to go for the 500-hour, but my work schedule exploded. I then had to design a home meditation practice, so I used several apps- InsightTimer and Deepak and Oprah’s meditation series. I also went to a HEAL1 series.
For my workouts, I started walking 3-4 miles and then added a workout App called Seven. It helped. It was so important after I had surgery. I used all of this to get back into shape.
Now with the social distancing required to prevent the spread of COVID-19, I am so happy that I designed this program. As a physician, I find that this home gym has helped decrease my stress level and keep me grounded. I need to stay healthy, so I can work and teach my residents. My patients said as they left the office” Stay safe.” This our new reality.
