Yoga

Doing yoga not only helps to calm the mind but also improve diabetes management. No doubt, that yoga is the best exercise for everyone. It must be included in daily routine during the lockdown, as it will keep your mental health balanced. You can do Yoga anywhere i.e. in your balcony, terrace, or living room, or wherever you get a small place. You don’t require any equipment for it.

Dancing Exercise

Well, dance is a great exercise and workout. Diabetics can go for a free-style dance that helps them move their whole body. So, create your playlist and start working out. Go for dance workout in the morning, or evening.

Stairs climbing

You only have to climb stairs quickly, at a good pace. However, you can climb up and down on a single step if you do not have a full staircase.
