Just because you’re stuck at home, it doesn’t mean you can’t keep up with your physical routine or start a new one. There are plenty of ways to get active at home, even if you’re limited on space. Here are a few easy ways to stay active while stuck at home.
Whether you’re looking for a kickboxing routine, standing exercises that don’t require you to get down on the floor, or low impact exercises that are easier on your joints, you can find it on YouTube. Just spend a little time searching to find videos that work for you so you can just click on them without having to waste time. Then make a schedule a few days each week so you can commit to doing them.
Missing those stress-relieving sessions at your local yoga studio? Once again, thanks to the convenience of technology, you don’t have to leave your home to join in on a class. Yoga TX or Body Positive Yoga are just a few examples where you can find a range of different classes, whether you’re looking for gentle stretches, strengthening, deep breathing or a combination.
If you’ve been struggling to remember to work out or find the motivation to get off the couch, a helpful way to keep on track is to schedule reminders on your phone. You can also partner up with a friend or relative so you can remind each other and even Skype or Zoom to workout together. Having another person to give you a nudge is one of the best ways to stay motivated and stay active while stuck at home.
Gardening and Yard Work
There’s no better way to be productive and get your heart rate up than by doing some yard work or gardening. Aside from giving you a little gentle exercise, spending time out in the fresh air raking, turning the garden beds, or mowing the lawn will make you feel amazing and give you some stress-relieving benefits as well.
Dance It Out
For those who disdain the idea of working out but want to incorporate more movement into their daily routine, you can dance it out instead. Throw on your favourite playlist or join an online dance class to learn a new routine and let loose. It’s a fun way to get some cardio in and shake out all that stress.
If you’re tired of taking on the yard work and would rather leave it to the pros, we can take care of it for you at Hansen Lawn & Gardens. Contact us today to learn more about our services and fees.
