How to Stay Active at Home

As we move through the summer months, we move into a new normal. A new month. A new reality. Although we have all these “new norms” and this may be scary, I urge you to think of these times as exciting and new challenges. We have had to adjust the ways we interact with each other, the ways we work, the ways we play and have fun, as well as the environments we enjoy to move and exercise in.

Just because all of the ways to do this has changed doesn’t mean we have to totally push movement and exercise out of our lives. We still have our bodies and we still have the space we are seated or standing in right now. Which is quite a lot of space. Make your new normal a time where you venture outside your comfort zone. Learn some new things. New movements. Whether you like change or don’t, the reality is we are already in it.

Remember how I said we still have the space we are seated or standing in right now? You have that at home. Do some up-downs off the chair, do a chair cardio workout. Go for a walk! Just because we don’t have access to gyms doesn’t mean we need to stop moving or exercising. New norms challenge what we have done in the past. I challenge you to think about what you can do at home with what you have. If you are struggling or looking for ideas, check out our Facebook and Instagram pages for some tips.

To celebrate jumping into the summer months, I challenge you to every day look at the date. See that number? Do that many jumping jacks. Seated or standing. We can still exercise at home, but that’s only one component. Make sure you are keeping your foundation of physical activity planned and structured. If you find yourself being pretty sedentary during the week, try to stand up and move for 5 minutes every hour you are awake!
