The self-isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic is coming for us all. However, staying at home isn’t a one-size-fits-all kind of activity. Some of us are enjoying finally tackling our reading lists with a cup of coffee or tea, while others are binging Netflix and depleting their quarantine snacks. Meanwhile, there are even more who are going stir-crazy and need something physical to do before they start destroying things.
In either case, coming up with a daily routine that you find soothing is definitely crucial to maintaining your mental health while we live out this dystopian reality.
For those amongst us who love to work out, not being able to go to a proper gym or even a park in certain instances, might leave people scrambling for workout choices. Of course, this often means that workout routines have to be moved indoors to homes.
While this might not be a problem for most, parents and pet parents alike know otherwise. Despite the plethora of free workout services, fitness apps, and YouTube videos, sometimes exercising inside your home with a pet is easier said than done.
As it turns out, there are plenty of pet parents out there who are posting videos of their dogs interrupting them during workout time:
