How to Remain Healthy While Staying Home

With all the changes going on in the world at the moment, nearly all of us are putting in more time in our homes. It can seem hard to keep up with a good lifestyle when your gym in Waite Park is closed.

You might have transformed into the educator, chef, and parent in your household. Maybe you are working from home now and struggling to establish some organization throughout the day.

In these changing times, it can be easy to spend more time on the couch, checking the news and movie after movie, and likely dropping your daily workout routine. We may be stranded at home, but we can always generate ways to preserve healthy habits! Take a look at our preferred effective activities you can work into your updated everyday routine to stay active, boost your immune system, and create momentum toward achieving your wellness targets.

Incorporate Home Workouts

One advantage of spending extra time at home is the added space in your everyday schedule. Go through your schedule. Where can you create just a few minutes for a home workout? A successful workout doesn’t need to go on forever to be good for you. As long as your heart rate goes up, you will get fat and calorie-burning advantages! Take a look at our 12-minute home fitness class you can do anytime, anywhere!

Involve Your Kids in Your Workout

The pools may not be open, but there are still tons of ways to add fun projects your kids will want to do. At the end of the day, being active isn’t just for grownups! Here are a selection of our preferred fun (and free!) ways your family can get together:

  • Walk the dog
  • Play frisbee out of your house in the sunshine (hello Vitamin D!)
  • Take a break for a bike ride or roller skate expedition
  • Form a floral arrangement with your outdoor blooms
  • Play ball in the yard
  • Spot your sidewalk chalk and draft a driveway masterpiece
  • Have a dinner cooking contest
  • Crank up the tunes and have a dance break

Prepare Healthy Meals

Are you trying your best to avoid the grocery store? No problem! This is the time to get creative in the kitchen and mix in your available canned goods and frozen foods. With the kiddos out of school, hectic days working from home, and almost endless household chores, keep your meals easy this summer.

At FXB, we make good nutrition uncomplicated for our members. Start with your chosen protein kind from the freezer, find a carb for your side, and add some healthy fat. And there you have it: a healthy meal with no fuss. (And if it’s your fun day, call for a pizza and relax!)
