How to Remain Healthy While Staying Home

With all the things going on in the world recently, nearly all of us are putting in more time in our houses. It can appear difficult to follow a good lifestyle when your gym in Elk River is closed.

You might have turned into the principal, personal chef, and parent in your house. Perhaps you are working from home now and striving to set up some normalcy in your day.

Throughout these uncertain times, it can be easy to stay on the couch, checking the news and Netflix, and likely losing your day-to-day workout routine. We may be spending more time at home, but we can still focus on ways to continue healthy behavior! Here are our top productive habits you can incorporate into your current day-to-day routine to be active, help your immune system, and manage momentum toward achieving your wellness intentions.

Try Home Workouts

One nice thing about spending more time at home is the added space in your daily agenda. Take a look at your schedule. Where can you make a couple of minutes for a home workout? A successful exercise session doesn’t need to go for hours to be good for you. As long as your heart rate escalates, you will get 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 be closed, but there are still many ways to add fun things your little ones will like. After all, remaining active isn’t just for adults! Here are a selection of our preferred fun (and free!) ways the whole family can get together:

  • Take the dog for a walk
  • Play frisbee outside in the sun (hello Vitamin D!)
  • Head out for a bike ride or roller skate expedition
  • Create a floral arrangement with your outdoor blooms
  • Play ball in your yard
  • Spot your sidewalk chalk and draw a driveway work of art
  • Have a dinner cooking challenge
  • Turn up the family playlist and have a dance break

Plan Healthy Meals

Are you attempting to stay away from grocery shopping? 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, full workdays, and everyday household chores, keep your breakfasts, lunches, and dinners straightforward this season.

At FXB, we make good nutrition easy for our members. Grab your chosen protein source from the freezer, find a carb for a side, and add some healthy fat. And you’re done: a healthy supper without the fuss. (And if it’s your fun day, order a pizza and unwind!)
