With the UAE advising everyone to stay indoors and hotels being asked to temporarily shut gyms and spas, Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai has adapted to the situation by releasing its own set of at-home routines for people to try.

Qua Spa manager Ayuko Suzuki has laid out a handful of ways people can maintain a healthy lifestyle at home. Suzuki suggested always sticking to a routine, getting ready in the morning and prepare for your day as you normally would. She also said it is important to maintain a regular sleep schedule and move around from your desk every five minutes.

Suzuki added: “Scent means something different to everyone but what is important is what you like is what you need.  Citrus to floral to musky… every person has a different preference, and this can often change depending on your mood.  Aromatherapy has a very strong effect on a person, both physically and emotionally when it goes straight to our olfactory sensory system.  An essential oil diffuser in the home can be a big boost to support your mood throughout the day.”

On the topic of diet, she explained: “There are many superfoods which can help boost our immune systems to help keep us strong.  Blueberries contain flavonoids which helps our respiratory tract’s immune defence system; broccoli is a great source of vitamin C and antioxidants; and green tea has a high content of flavonoids with a small dose of caffeine.”

Her home workout is as follows:
