How to Stay Healthy While Staying Home

With everything happening in the world recently, the majority of us are passing more time at home. It can seem hard to keep up with a good lifestyle when your gym in Waukee is closed.

You might have become the teacher, personal chef, and parent in your household. Maybe you are working from home for a time and struggling to establish some structure in the day.

In these unpredictable times, it can be tempting to stay on the couch, checking the news and your favorite shows, and slowly giving up on a normal workout routine. We may be spending more time at home, but we can always create ways to continue a healthy lifestyle! We’ve shared our top helpful habits you can incorporate into your changing everyday routine to be active, boost your immune system, and keep momentum toward attaining your wellness intentions.

Try Home Workouts

One positive aspect of spending more time at home is the adaptability in your daily schedule. Go through your routine. Where can you make ten minutes for a short workout? A useful exercise session doesn’t need to be long to be effective. As long as your heart rate escalates, you will create fat and calorie-burning advantages! Try our 12-minute home fitness class you can work on anytime, anywhere!

Involve Your Kids in Your Workout

The pools may not be available, but there are still many ways to create fun activities your kiddos will want to do. Because being active isn’t just for adults! Here are a few of our favorite fun (and free!) ways your family can stay fit together:

  • Take the dog for a walk
  • Play frisbee out of your house in the sun (hello Vitamin D!)
  • Head out for a bike ride or roller skate trip
  • Form a floral arrangement with your homegrown blossoms
  • Play ball in the backyard
  • Find your sidewalk chalk and make a driveway masterpiece
  • Have a dinner cooking match up
  • Turn on the tunes and have a dance break

Make Healthy Meals

Are you trying your best to bypass grocery shopping? No problem! This is the time to innovate in the kitchen and use your favorite canned goods and frozen foods. With the kids out of school, busy days at work, and daily household chores, keep your meals easy during summertime.

At FXB, we make good nutrition uncomplicated for our members. Start with your chosen protein kind from the freezer, select a carb for a side, and integrate some healthy fat. And there you have it: a healthy supper with little to no fuss. (And if it’s your fun day, call for a pizza and sit back!)
