With stay-at-home orders in place for weeks, many people are finding that they are having difficulty maintaining their weight. With gyms and parks closed, the opportunities for exercise are few and far between. That combined with poor eating habits can have a huge impact on your weight.
Even if you have the means to get some exercise, such as walking or jogging, it may be difficult to get up the motivation to actually do it. That’s normal right now, and you shouldn’t be hard on yourself. With social distancing measures in place, many people are feeling detached, depressed, and anxious. This can lead to executive dysfunction, which basically means that no matter how much you want to do something, you can’t bring yourself to do it.
