re y’all frustrated yet? Staying indoors for extended periods of time can take a toll on our bikini bodies, skin, and mental health. Not to mention the screen time report (8 hours a day going strong here!) that is enough to tip the mental stability on its own.
However, our biggest support and thoughts go to families with small children – we don’t know how you do it and we are in awe. If you are running out of activities to get the little ones involved in, try the yoga sequence below, courtesy of Sam’s Club, that will give your muscles a long-needed stretch and will keep children occupied. For a bit at least.
To make that yoga session count and optimize the benefits, make sure to choose the pre-workout and post-workout snacks wisely, hence, the tips below!
Yes, you should still be shopping online
While we are 100% into fresh fruit and healthy snacks this Spring, it is not a reason to forget lavish shopping trips in the city should still be limited. Not to worry though, since you can easily shop online with Sam’s Club. Better safe than sick!
Sam’s Club is a members-only store that hand-picks the highest-quality products that can be delivered to the customers while they are cooped up inside. Get cozy on your sofa and get shopping!
Pre-workout Fuel: Bananas
Dole Bananas (1.4kg), RMB19.8
Bananas are one of the perfect pre-workout foods that provide the sugar, carbs, and potassium to keep you energized throughout the session. They can ward off the hunger and keep the optimal function of your muscles and nerves.
Imported from the Philippines, Dole Bananas from Sam’s Club are harvested from 500 meters above sea level, where plenty of sunlight and 3-month-longer than usual growth period gives it a distinct sweet taste and high nutritional value.
Exercise: Parent-kid Yoga
Not every sport requires running and sweating. Try the 6 kid-friendly yoga poses below and the next thing you know, the little ones will be asking you for the next yoga practice. Strike a pose!

Pose 2: Child Pose
Pose 3: Side Plank
Pose 4: Face to face Upward-Facing Dog
