How to Keep Healthy While Staying Home

With changes happening in the world right now, many of us are passing more time in our houses. It can seem tricky to keep up with a positive lifestyle when your gym in Eagan is closed.

You could have changed into the teacher, main cook, and parent in your household. Maybe you are working from home for the time being and aiming to find some normalcy during your day.

During these unusual times, it can be easy to devote more time to the couch, staring at the news and mindless shows, and slowly giving up on a daily workout routine. We may be passing more time at home, but we can nevertheless create ways to preserve healthy behavior! Take a look at our top helpful activities you can add into your new day-to-day routine to keep active, help your immune system, and create momentum toward reaching your wellness goals.

Incorporate Home Workouts

One nice thing about spending extra time at home is the adaptability in your everyday agenda. Take a look at your schedule. Where can you find ten minutes for a short workout? A successful workout doesn’t need to be long to be effective. As long as your heart rate escalates, 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 be closed, but there are still almost endless ways to add fun projects your kiddos will want to do. After all, being active isn’t just for adults! Here are a selection of our preferred fun (and free!) ways the whole family can get all together:

  • Walk the dog
  • Bring a frisbee out of your house in the sunshine (hello Vitamin D!)
  • Take a break for a bike ride or roller skate expedition
  • Create a floral arrangement with your family’s blooms
  • Play ball in your yard
  • Spot your sidewalk chalk and draw a driveway mural
  • Have a dinner cooking contest
  • Turn up the tunes and have a dance -off

Plan Healthy Meals

Are you doing your best to avoid grocery shopping? That works! Now is the time to make new things in the kitchen and employ your available canned goods and frozen foods. With the children away from school, busy times at work, and the usual household chores, keep your mealtimes easy this season.

At FXB, we make good nutrition easy for our members. Use your preferred protein type from the freezer, find a carb for a side, and integrate 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!)
