Feel Good Happiness Hack – Lockdown Walk

Not sure what the rules are elsewhere, but in the UK we are allowed out once a day for exercise.

Green/outdoor exercises has been shown in studies to improve feelings of wellbeing (study here)

Saunas have been shown to improve mood in general and have all kinds of health benefits (more info here)

So – combine the two:

  • Brisk uphill walk/run
  • In several layers, including a sauna suit*

*Obvious danger of dehydration, talk a sports drink or make your own. Have someone with you in case you pass out

Not got time to do yoga, but I’ve been using my massage gun, then doing a few basic stretches before having a cold shower.

Saunas are also good for your health – not sure about mad-blokes in sauna-suits specifically:
