Switch It Up

Has your motivation slipped a little? Given the current situation, it’s easy to find ourselves feeling completely different each day. One day full of energy and being productive, the next sitting in our PJ’s all day with whatever snacks we can find in the cupboard. 

As much we hate to hear it, it’s true what they say though, energy makes energy. An at-home workout (even if it’s just twenty minutes) will lift your mood and should leave you with slightly more of a spring in your step. 

So, why not switch up your routine a little and try out these workouts that can all be done from home and are available for free on YouTube!
