How to Stay Healthy While Staying Home

With everything happening in the world today, many of us are using more time in our homes. It can feel difficult to follow a positive lifestyle when your gym in West Des Moines is closed.

You could have changed into the principal, personal chef, and parent in your house. Perhaps you are working from home now and aiming to set up some normalcy during the day.

During these uncertain times, it can be appealing to stay on the couch, checking the news and mindless shows, and slowly falling out of a normal workout routine. We may be spending more time at home, but we can still make ways to keep up healthy habits! Take a look at our top productive practices you can integrate into your updated daily routine to stay active, help your immune system, and maintain momentum toward attaining your wellness objectives.

Integrate Home Workouts

One nice thing about spending more time at home is the added space in your everyday routine. Go through your schedule. Where can you make a few minutes for a home workout? A great sweat session doesn’t need to go on forever to make a difference. As long as your heart rate increases, you will create fat and calorie-burning advantages! Take a look at our 12-minute home fitness class you can finish anytime, anywhere!

Include Your Kids in Your Workout

The pools may not be open, but there are still almost endless ways to offer fun projects your kids will want to do. At the end of the day, being active isn’t just for adults! Here are a few of our preferred fun (and free!) ways the whole family can spend time together:

  • Take the dog for a walk
  • Play frisbee outside in the sunshine (hello Vitamin D!)
  • Head out for a bike ride or roller skate expedition
  • Design a floral arrangement with your family’s blooms
  • Play ball in your yard
  • Grab your sidewalk chalk and make a driveway work of art
  • Have a dinner cooking contest
  • Turn on the music and have a dance break

Make Healthy Meals

Are you attempting to stay out of shopping for groceries? No problem! Right now is the time to make new things in the kitchen and incorporate your available canned goods and frozen foods. With the kids out of school, hectic times at work, and daily household chores, keep your breakfasts, lunches, and dinners easy during summertime.

At FXB, we make good nutrition simple for our members. Start with your chosen protein source from the freezer, select a carb for a side, and incorporate some healthy fat. And then it’s done: a healthy meal with little to no fuss. (And if it’s your fun day, pick up a pizza and relax!)
