How to Keep Healthy While Staying Home

With all the things occurring in the world at the moment, many of us are spending more time at home. It can appear hard to follow a healthy lifestyle when your gym in Omaha is closed.

You may have turned into the educator, chef, and parent in your home. Maybe you are working from home for a while and aiming to establish some structure throughout your day.

In these uncertain times, it can be easy to head to the couch, watching the news and your favorite shows, and slowly losing your day-to-day workout routine. We may be stuck at home, but we can still create ways to maintain a healthy lifestyle! Take a look at our favorite productive habits you can incorporate into your changing daily routine to keep active, promote your immune system, and manage momentum toward achieving your wellness objectives.

Incorporate Home Workouts

One benefit of spending more time at home is the adaptability in your everyday routine. Take a look at your schedule. Where can you squeeze in ten minutes for a home workout? A great workout doesn’t need to go on forever to be good for you. As long as your heart rate increases, you will receive fat and calorie-burning benefits! Check out our 12-minute home fitness class you can work on anytime, anywhere!

Involve Your Kids in Your Workout

The pools may not be open, but there are still a variety of ways to incorporate fun activities your kiddos will want to do. After all, being active isn’t just for parents! Here are a couple of our top fun (and free!) ways your family can stay healthy together:

  • Take the dog for a walk
  • Bring a frisbee out of your house in the sunshine (hello Vitamin D!)
  • Go for a bike ride or roller skate adventure
  • Form a floral arrangement with your family’s flowers
  • Play ball in the backyard
  • Spot your sidewalk chalk and draw a driveway work of art
  • Have a dinner cooking match up
  • Turn up the music and have a dance break

Prepare Healthy Meals

Are you attempting to avoid grocery shopping? No problem! This is the time to innovate in the kitchen and use your family’s canned goods and frozen foods. With the children at home, long workdays, and everyday household chores, keep your mealtimes 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 the side, and incorporate some healthy fat. And then it’s done: a healthy dinner without the fuss. (And if it’s your fun day, call for a pizza and hang at home!)
