Keeping your mind at ease through the changing landscape of the world is a challenge at the best of times. Throw in another lockdown, more uncertainty and a total shift in routine and your stress levels are likely to go through the roof.
Prolonged periods of stress can affect our mental health but sticking to a daily routine will help in times of ambiguity. Dedicate a few minutes every day to focus on your breathing or take a brisk walk. This will bring your awareness back to your body, and out of the chaos of the mind.
Thankfully, local businesses are adapting the way they operate, taking their yoga and fitness classes online. BodyEthos, who’s been a part of the Balmain community for almost 20 years, is one of them.
Throughout lockdown the Pilates and Yoga studio offered daily live stream classes. Owner Kylie says, “Whether it’s in studio or online, both options give members the chance to see their regular teachers and other members of the BodyEthos community and bring a sense of familiarity, connection and routine to their day.”
