How to Stay Healthy While Staying Home

With all the changes occurring in the world recently, most of us are putting in more time in our homes. It can feel tricky to follow a healthy lifestyle when your gym in New Hope is closed.

You may have transformed into the principal, home cook, and parent in your household. Maybe you are working from home for the time being and aiming to establish some normalcy in your day.

Through the course of these uncertain times, it can be tempting to head to the couch, checking the news and mindless shows, and likely falling out of a daily workout routine. We may be stuck at home, but we can nevertheless focus on ways to preserve healthy habits! We’ve shared our favorite productive activities you can incorporate into your changing day-to-day routine to be active, help your immune system, and maintain momentum toward realizing your wellness objectives.

Include Home Workouts

One benefit of spending more time at home is the flexibility in your day-to-day agenda. Look at your day. Where can you find a couple of minutes for an at-home workout? A great sweat session doesn’t need to take a long time to be effective. As long as your heart rate goes up, you will get fat and calorie-burning benefits! Check out our 12-minute home fitness class you can finish anytime, anywhere!

Involve Your Kids in Your Workout

The pools may not be available, but there are still many ways to create fun things your little ones will enjoy. After all, remaining active isn’t just for parents! Here are a couple of our preferred fun (and free!) ways your family can spend time all together:

  • Walk the dog
  • Play frisbee outside in the warm sun (hello Vitamin D!)
  • Take a break for a bike ride or roller skate journey
  • Make a floral arrangement with your homegrown blossoms
  • Play ball in the backyard
  • Snag your sidewalk chalk and draft a driveway mural
  • Have a dinner cooking challenge
  • Crank up the tunes and have a dance competition

Make Healthy Meals

Are you attempting to stay away from shopping for groceries? That works! This is the time to try new things in the kitchen and employ your favorite canned goods and frozen foods. With the children on break, busy workdays, and everyday household chores, keep your breakfasts, lunches, and dinners straightforward during summertime.

At FXB, we make good nutrition easy for our members. Grab your chosen protein kind from the freezer, select a carb for a side, and integrate some healthy fat. And there you go: a healthy dinner without the fuss. (And if it’s your fun day, call for a pizza and sit back!)
