Staying Active While Socially Isolated with SCI
It's hard to keep up with an active lifestyle, especially if you are a wheelchair user that depends on structured adapted sports events to help with exercise. Now that we are all socially isolated, rehabs and adapted sports organizations are beginning to solve the problem.
Traditional gyms, yoga studios and trainers are beginning to put exercise online. Why not the adaptive sports community? They've just begun to answer that call. Here are a few ways to stay healthy at home, even with meditation and gentle exercise. If you know of others, don't hesitate to get in touch and I'll add them to the list - firstname.lastname@example.org. Everyone, please stay well!
