Covid Stomach

Everyone is telling me I have COVID stomach! Most of us are working from home with kids doing remote learning. Many states are doing more lock downs now. And the holidays are here! Being home more, food is near you all the time. Some are working from the dining room table or kitchen counter, which they see all those snacks are staring at them all day. You get that picture! Now some are working in the basement or in a home office which the snacks are not staring at them. Out of sight, out of mind! Now you see this picture. Which picture is yours?

Simple tips to reduce COVID Stomach: 1. Put a timer on your cell phone or schedule break when you are finish with meetings. 2. Take breaks by walking around the house or go outside for 5-15 min. When you come back in, you will forget about the food and feel refresh. You will work more productively. 3. Put healthy snacks on the counter, like fruit then unhealthy snacks. 4. Don’t skip eating meals which is just as bad as eating too much. 5. One simple ab exercise that you can do sitting, push your abs to your back and hold those Transverse Abdominals for 20 seconds to a minute. Do 3 sets a day. This will help your back and abs feel better. Stay healthy and safe!
