How to Keep Healthy While Staying Home

With everything happening in the world recently, the majority of us are using more time in our houses. It can feel hard to stick with a healthy lifestyle when your gym in St. Paul is closed.

You may have become the principal, home cook, and parent in your household. Or you are working from home for a while and struggling to set up some normalcy throughout the day.

In these unusual times, it can be appealing to waste time on the couch, checking the news and Netflix, and likely losing your daily workout routine. We may be passing more time at home, but we can always find ways to continue healthy habits! We’re sharing our top useful habits you can add into your current everyday routine to keep active, support your immune system, and keep momentum toward realizing your wellness targets.

Try Home Workouts

One positive aspect of spending additional time at home is the added space in your day-to-day agenda. Go through your schedule. Where can you squeeze in just a few minutes for an at-home workout? A successful sweat session doesn’t need to go for hours to be good for you. As long as your heart rate goes up, you will get fat and calorie-burning perks! Start with our 12-minute home fitness class you can do anytime, anywhere!

Have Your Kids Join Your Workout

The pools may not be open, but there are still almost endless ways to offer fun activities your kids will enjoy. At the end of the day, being active isn’t just for parents! Here are some of our top fun (and free!) ways the entire family can stay healthy together:

  • Take a nice, long walk
  • Take a frisbee out in the warm sun (hello Vitamin D!)
  • Break for a bike ride or roller skate journey
  • Create a floral arrangement with your family’s blooms
  • Play ball in the yard
  • Find your sidewalk chalk and create a driveway masterpiece
  • Have a dinner cooking contest
  • Crank up the music and have a dance competition

Prepare Healthy Meals

Are you attempting to avoid the grocery store? No problem! Right now is the time to innovate in the kitchen and use your available canned goods and frozen foods. With the children on summer break, busy days at work, and everyday household chores, keep your meals simple this summer.

At FXB, we make good nutrition uncomplicated for our members. Start with your favorite protein source from the freezer, select a carb for the side, and mix in some healthy fat. And there you go: a healthy dinner with no fuss. (And if it’s your fun day, call for a pizza and relax!)
