With all the changes happening in the world at the moment, nearly all of us are spending more time in our houses. It can appear tricky to keep up with a healthy lifestyle when your gym in Eden Prairie is closed.
You could have become the teacher, main cook, and parent in your household. Maybe you are working from home for a while and aiming to set up some normalcy throughout the day.
During these uncertain times, it can be easy to spend more time on the couch, staring at the news and your favorite shows, and casually dropping your daily workout routine. We may be passing more time at home, but we can for sure generate ways to continue healthy habits! Take a look at our top positive practices you can add into your current everyday routine to stay active, promote your immune system, and maintain momentum toward reaching your wellness goals.
Try Home Workouts
One advantage of spending additional time at home is the added space in your everyday schedule. Look at your schedule. Where can you make a few minutes for an at-home workout? A great sweat session doesn’t need to go on forever to be good for you. As long as your heart rate increases, you will get fat and calorie-burning advantages! Start with our 12-minute home fitness class you can finish anytime, anywhere!
Involve Your Kids in Your Workout
The pools may not be open, but there are still a variety of ways to incorporate fun activities your kiddos will like. Because remaining active isn’t just for parents! Here are some of our favorite fun (and free!) ways your family can get all together:
- Walk the dog
- Take a frisbee out of your house in the warm sun (hello Vitamin D!)
- Break for a bike ride or roller skate expedition
- Make a floral arrangement with your family’s blossoms
- Play ball in your yard
- Spot your sidewalk chalk and make a driveway mural
- Have a dinner cooking competition
- Turn up the family playlist and have a dance party
Make Healthy Meals
Are you trying your best to bypass shopping for groceries? No problem! Right now is the time to innovate in the kitchen and include your available canned goods and frozen foods. With the children out of school, hectic days working from home, and daily household chores, keep your meals straightforward this summer.
At FXB, we make good nutrition uncomplicated for our members. Start with your favorite protein source from the freezer, pick a carb for the side, and add some healthy fat. And then it’s done: a healthy dinner with little to no fuss. (And if it’s your fun day, pick up a pizza and hang at home!)
