Shilpa Shetty Suggests Exercises For Those Working From Home

Lockdown period may have a negative impact on people's health. Especially those who are working from home. Sitting in front of laptops for long hours can lead to severe back aches. And therefore, Shilpa Shetty has suggested some simple exercises to do at home. She posted her workout video and wrote, "We’re living in some extreme situations right now. On the one hand, there’s so much to do around the house while many are also working-from-home; on the other hand, the excess free time keeps us seated for long hours with very little movement - a massive state of confusion for the body. All of this, however, can lead to a stiff and painful back & muscles. It’s important to keep stretching and strengthening the back to avoid any long-term, severe pain. So, I practice this routine regularly and it works wonders for me. It strengthens the back & abdominal muscles, improves flexibility in the spine & enhances the body posture. It also relieves back pain & relaxes the back muscles, while opening up the lungs. Give your body a little activity so it doesn’t go into a state of shock in these testing times. Stay indoors, stay safe!"
