Hey girls! I agree it can be frustrating to be stuck at home and not be able to go on with your usual routine. Well, the coronavirus outbreak has forced us all to stay indoors and we’re all in this together. While we’re all trying to do something productive during this lockdown, I know this quarantine is even more daunting for brides-to-be. Be it the shaadi shopping or the venue arrangements, you basically can't do much. But what you can do is amp up your fitness routine. After all, you've got all the time in the world now and the last thing you want is to pile up on the calories sitting at home.
‘Coz who said a workout has to be boring?
Believe it or not, high-intensity Bollywood dancing is so much fun that you won’t even know that you’re burning calories. Include your fam as well, and trust me, it’s going to be a lot of fun.
If you love Zumba, I would recommend that you must give it a go during quarantine. It’s a fun, blood pumping workout that is bound to wonders for your body.
