Prophylactic self-isolation for sport transformation. Day 28th.

Who was laughing of a hamster in a wheel? You don’t? Me too:)

When I visited malls years before, I used to stop by pet shops. Pet shop is like a mini zoo, mini life, someone is there in cages alive, with no imagination what is going on around in a human world… I used to observe animals’ behavior, for example, hamsters’s group behavior. They were usually 10 to 20 in one cage (depending on their size and a size of a cage). Usually, one of them was active, running in a wheel while others were peacefully dreaming their dreams, sweetly huddled one on each other.

A day before official announcement of prohibition to make sports and walking in public areas, a lady caught a hardly to conceal nervousness in the runner’s face. She saw him for seconds and then he ran away, but his face, breathing and body manner obviously showed the inner indignation and a protest to the upcoming restrictions.

For those who are sportsmen, for athletes, for humans used to be physically active, this COVID-19 period could appear as a hard time. Or oppositely, could improve mental toughness and the Power.

Last morning, approximately at 5:30 am (before sunrise), I was on the balcony, running on the spot.

Running on the spot at 5:30 am

This morning, a little bit later, at 7 am, I was there again. But today I was not alone: during all the day neighbors were doing sports on their balconies or private areas. I saw one man with a jump-rope, one athlete doing stretching exercises, another athlete with tons! of milk packages in two bags, for each hand to train, from another balcony half visible silhouette of woman making sports with elastic fitness bands. A very old lady was walking rounds on her balcony at midday. Really, there are no limits for healthy spirit!

My initial sport transformation after few years of indefensible laziness has started one day, when I was laying on the sofa with potato chips and a phone in my hands.

The video name claimed, something will happen in a month if I will do those exercises before bed. As like I was programmed (properly that time:)), I started to do so, every evening, with that video on. After one month I was flying, yeah, I was alive! Started to go deeper to my physical and mental wellness, started my transition to Nature. I need to thank to the creators of that youtube video, they contributed to my amazing transformation. Im sharing that video with you now, more so, I decided to renew the program and will do it again these days :

Important note:

In that video, exercise, named “Standing crossover toe touches” at 9:11 minute (9:11??) is very good exercise for me now, because it enhances lungs’ ventilation.

Still love those exercises and that feeling of self-transformation for good:))

Once I watched a scientific program where the scientist put two ants of different species together in one jar. According to botanical knowledge, those two species of ants are competitors and could be aggressive to each other if standing for their territories. So, the scientist put them together in a jar to observe their behavior and was expecting to see some kind of fighting. Surprisingly, neither of two ants were looking for fighting. Oppositely, both started to communicate and cooperate, seeking to find a passage to get out of there.

Sometimes, scientific predictions do not come true, but scientific knowledge and supportive unification are strongly important while facing with the challenges.

We cant connect physically in the present situation as ants on the photo do:), but mental and internet-assisted connection should bring us to supportive unification

According to World Health Organisation (WHO), the role of immune system and mental health are highly important to withstand the virus. Healthy food, healthy activities and peaceful mental disposition reflect in strong immune system, and should make a huge positive impact in confrontation with COVID-19 virus or THE NEWS about it.

These days World Health Organisation advises the following:

  • Eat healthy to boost your immune system.
  • Limit alcohol and sugary drinks.
  • Don’t smoke. It can exacerbate COVID-19 symptoms and increase your risk of getting seriously sick.
  • Exercise for at least 30 minutes a day for adults and an hour a day for kids.
  • If you’re allowed to go outside, go for a walk, run or bike ride while keeping a safe distance from others.
  • If you can’t leave the house, dance, do some yoga or walk up and down the stairs.
  • People working from home shouldn’t sit too long in the same position. 
  • Take a 3 minute break every 30 minutes.
  • Get your mind off of the crisis. Listen to music, read a book or play a game.

We stay at home to stay healthy, no need to do it opposite. More so, now it is a great possibility to rest from daily routine which was usually so stress-soaked for many urban citizens. Dealing with new plant-based recipe, singing, creating something, cleaning the space, we contribute positively to our (and our families’) every single day.

Meditation is something very new for me, hundreds of time heard about it but never was deep enough there. Today, a short, 20-minutes meditation took me to a state of peaceful mind and restful body. Would like to repeat it again!
