How to Remain Healthy While Staying Home

With all the things happening in the world right now, many of us are passing more time in our houses. It can feel difficult to follow a positive lifestyle when your gym in White Bear Township is closed.

You might have transformed into the principal, chef, and parent in your home. Maybe you are working from home for a while and striving to establish some structure during the day.

During these unusual times, it can be easy to spend more time on the couch, staring at the news and Netflix, and likely falling out of a day-to-day workout routine. We may be spending more time at home, but we can nevertheless create ways to maintain a healthy routine! Here are our top useful activities you can add into your current daily routine to keep active, help your immune system, and create momentum toward reaching your wellness goals.

Integrate Home Workouts

One advantage of spending additional time at home is the added space in your daily schedule. Look at your schedule. Where can you squeeze in a couple of minutes for a quick workout? An awesome workout doesn’t need to be long to be helpful. As long as your heart rate increases, you will get fat and calorie-burning benefits! Take a look at our 12-minute home fitness class you can work on anytime, anywhere!

Have Your Kids Join Your Workout

The pools may be closed, but there are still hundreds of ways to create fun projects your little ones will like. At the end of the day, being active isn’t just for adults! Here are a selection of our preferred fun (and free!) ways your family can stay healthy together:

  • Take a nice, long walk
  • Bring a frisbee out in the warm sun (hello Vitamin D!)
  • Take a break for a bike ride or roller skate journey
  • Create a floral arrangement with your homegrown blooms
  • Play ball in your yard
  • Find your sidewalk chalk and create a driveway masterpiece
  • Have a dinner cooking challenge
  • Switch on the music and have a dance party

Prepare Healthy Meals

Are you doing your best to avoid the grocery store? That works! Now is the time to get creative in the kitchen and use your family’s canned goods and frozen foods. With the kiddos away from school, busy workdays, and almost endless household chores, keep your breakfasts, lunches, and dinners easy during summertime.

At FXB, we make good nutrition easy for our members. Snag your preferred protein kind from the freezer, find a carb for a side, and add some healthy fat. And then it’s done: a healthy meal with little to no fuss. (And if it’s your fun day, order a pizza and unwind!)
