The Effect of Staying Home on Your Body

The Effect of Staying Home on Your Body

Have you ever enjoyed a lazy weekend of doing absolutely nothing?

Grazing on snacks all day, watching reruns on Netflix, and becoming one with your couch. At the beginning of the weekend, you relish every nap and feel no desire to put on real pants.

At the end of the weekend, though, you’re probably raring to get out and do something.

Except, for months on end, we haven’t been able to get out and do much. We have been working from home, avoiding public spaces, and generally staying homebound to protect ourselves and others.

All these months of staying home has taken a toll on our bodies.

Muscles

Just one week of inactivity can undo months of working to build muscle.

But don’t panic and jump right back into your weightlifting or strength training routine – you might injure yourself! Take it slow and give your muscles time to rebuild.

Taking liquid collagen can also help your muscles repair as you start to work them again; collagen is a major building block of the connective tissue that makes up your muscles.

Heart and Lungs

Just like your other muscles, if your heart isn’t working hard, it will get weaker. And without an increased blood flow to the lungs, breathing function may deteriorate.

But you don’t have to hit the gym to get your blood pumping! Many athletic facilities are offering online exercise classes. Even a brisk walk around your neighbourhood can help combat the effects of a more sedentary lifestyle.

Posture

Working from home can often mean long hours of sitting in front of a computer, with no coworkers around to entice you up from your desk. Spending days on end slumped over can do a number on your posture. Your back, shoulders, neck, and hips are especially likely to strain.

Make sure you are getting up and moving your body every hour – a quick stretch can do wonders!

Skin

Staying inside means subjecting your skin to dry indoor air. Low humidity in circulated air can deplete your skin of its natural moisture barrier, leading to dull, dry skin. Try running a humidifier in your room at night to help combat the dry air.

Liquid collagen is another dry skin saver! It works long-term from the inside out to help restore your skin’s moisture barrier and develop new healthy skin cells.

Ironically, staying home to protect your health can have negative effects on your body.

But that doesn't mean there's nothing you can do about it!

Moving your body and taking daily liquid collagen can help combat the effect of the longest ever “lazy weekend” we’ve ever experienced.
