How to Stay Healthy While Staying Home

With changes occurring in the world recently, nearly all of us are putting in more time in our homes. It can seem hard to follow a good lifestyle when your gym in Woodbury is closed.

You may have transformed into the principal, chef, and parent in your home. Maybe you are working from home for a while and hoping to create some organization during each day.

During these unpredictable times, it can be appealing to stay on the couch, staring at the news and your favorite shows, and gradually giving up on a day-to-day workout routine. We may be spending more time at home, but we can still find ways to keep up healthy behavior! We’re sharing our preferred useful practices you can add into your changing everyday routine to be active, promote your immune system, and maintain momentum toward realizing your wellness objectives.

Integrate Home Workouts

One nice thing about spending additional time at home is the adaptability in your daily routine. Take a look at your schedule. Where can you squeeze in a few minutes for a home workout? A successful sweat session doesn’t need to take a long time to be effective. As long as your heart rate goes up, you will find fat and calorie-burning benefits! Check out our 12-minute home fitness class you can complete anytime, anywhere!

Have Your Kids Join Your Workout

The pools may not be open, but there are still a variety of ways to incorporate fun activities your little ones will enjoy. After all, being active isn’t just for adults! Here are a couple of our top fun (and free!) ways the entire family can get as a group:

  • Walk the dog
  • Take a frisbee out in the sunshine (hello Vitamin D!)
  • Head out for a bike ride or roller skate trip
  • Form a floral arrangement with your outdoor blooms
  • Play ball in the yard
  • Find your sidewalk chalk and make a driveway masterpiece
  • Have a dinner cooking competition
  • Turn on the family playlist and have a dance competition

Prepare Healthy Meals

Are you trying your best to avoid shopping for groceries? No problem! Now is the time to innovate in the kitchen and employ your family’s canned goods and frozen foods. With the kids on summer break, hectic days at work, and almost endless household chores, keep your breakfasts, lunches, and dinners easy this season.

At FXB, we make good nutrition easy for our members. Use your chosen protein kind from the freezer, choose a carb for the side, and include some healthy fat. And there you have it: a healthy meal with no fuss. (And if it’s your fun day, pick up a pizza and unwind!)
