Naomi Watts has encouraged fans to check out online exercise classes while practicing social distancing during the coronavirus crisis.

The actress took to Instagram on Thursday to post a picture of herself performing a yoga pose, and in the accompanying caption, shared that she is keeping active at home by live streaming yoga and other workout methods.

"Stand strong and have hope! I know the wheels are coming off, and we are all trying to find ways to navigate this awful uncertainty. Side note, I'm living in sweats, cooking c**p food, I'm short-fused, and have only put on lippy once in five days... And yes... it was for Instagram," the 51-year-old wrote. "How do we get through the cabin fever? The boredom and fear...? It's all but impossible with such high anxiety levels to keep our spirits up but here's a couple tips: @premayogabrooklynand @theclass are doing live streaming classes... Good for the body, mind and soul if you have time. They are fantastic and uplifting."

Naomi went on to recommend that those with some free time check out the information about at-home self-care rituals posted on the Onda Beauty website - the clean beauty company she co-founded in 2017.

Elsewhere in the message, the mother-of-two asked her 1.3 million followers for their advice on keeping calm whilst the pandemic continues to sweep the globe.

"Tell me how it's going for you. What are you doing to keep your anxiety at bay? Let me know good ideas, games and easy recipes... and anything to keep the kids from fighting!!" she added. "Community is everything right now. So please send your thoughts. Sending love and strength to you all and big giant love to the doctors and nurses who are working their butts off in these scary times."
