  • 3. Meal Preparation 

As the UK Government has issued a temporary ban on restaurants, this means there are fewer places open during lunchtime for those quick bites. This challenge is being mitigated by taking your own packed lunch to work.  

This can be daunting when you are not used to this. A number of YouTubers make this accessible by increasing the variety of suggestions for healthy lunch you can make yourself.

Exercises and meditations have proven very effective in the course of keeping the body and mind fit. Exercises increase the flow of blood around the body and also facilitates the removal of waste metabolites from your body. 

Yoga will help you channel your energy and focus on the things that matter in your life as you meditate on them. It is a great way to remain focused in the face of panic and confusion caused by COVID-19. It will also help you to calm your spirit as the crisis worsens around you.

  • 7. Karaoke YouTube 

Clubs and pubs are outlawed, eh? And you are missing out on some fun. Now, you can convert your room to a karaoke club. Just search your favourite song on YouTube, it will display the one with karaoke support, then connect your device ( smartphone or laptop ) to the Tv. Afterwards, use the mixer to connect the microphone and speaker. There are so many Karaoke apps but I can recommend this which is available on both Android and IOS. Enjoy. 

In conclusion, we are grateful for what we do. Stay Safe and Take care of yourself out there, stay fit and healthy. It is only when you are healthy and fit, can you continue to fight in the front line of COVID-19. YouTube can be very impactful in this period, make sure you don’t miss out on the support it has to offer.
