It's Upper Body Day

How to Stay Healthy While Staying Home

With all the changes happening in the world at the moment, nearly all of us are spending more time in our homes. It can seem hard to stick with a healthy lifestyle when your gym in Omaha is closed.

You might have found yourself becoming the teacher, personal chef, and parent in your house. Or you are working from home for the time being and striving to establish some normalcy in each day.

Throughout these unusual times, it can be tempting to devote more time to the couch, checking the news and Netflix, and slowly dropping your normal workout routine. We may be stuck at home, but we can nevertheless focus on ways to preserve a healthy lifestyle! Below, find our top positive activities you can incorporate into your changing everyday routine to keep active, boost your immune system, and maintain momentum toward realizing your wellness objectives.

Incorporate Home Workouts

One benefit of spending additional time at home is the adaptability in your everyday routine. Take a look at your routine. Where can you find a few minutes for a home workout? A useful sweat session doesn’t need to take a long time to be helpful. As long as your heart rate goes up, you will get fat and calorie-burning advantages! Take a look at our 12-minute home fitness class you can do anytime, anywhere!

Include Your Kids in Your Workout

The pools may not be open, but there are still hundreds of ways to incorporate fun things your children will like. At the end of the day, being active isn’t just for parents! Here are some of our favorite fun (and free!) ways the entire family can spend time all together:

  • Walk the dog
  • Play frisbee outside in the sun (hello Vitamin D!)
  • Head out for a bike ride or roller skate journey
  • Form a floral arrangement with your outdoor blooms
  • Play ball in the yard
  • Find your sidewalk chalk and make a driveway mural
  • Have a dinner cooking competition
  • Crank up the tunes and have a dance -off

Make Healthy Meals
