Sometimes, it can be hard to keep yourself occupied. Considering what’s going on in the world right now, staying at home is safest but how we can keep the momentum going while inside in the house? Here are a few tips:

You Need a Routine

Even though you can sleep late to your heart’s content, resist the urge. It’s essential to your sleep health to go to bed at about the same time and get up around the same time too. Make yourself a healthy breakfast, have a shower, and find a groove that you can cling to in order to stay positive.

Stretch

You’re not at the office right now where you have set a reminder to get up and move around at least once per hour but that doesn’t mean you should leave the practice behind. Set a reminder on your phone to get up and move every single hour during the day. This can help you to maintain circulation and avoid stiff joints and muscles.

Now would also be a great time to start practicing some daily stretching or yoga. Do a little research and find a yoga routine that suits your activity level and goals. It’s better to stretch a little than to sit around all day, after all.

If you’re not too keen on yoga, there are a few reasons to consider it. Primarily, there’s plenty of evidence that shows practicing yoga regularly can reduce your risk factors for heart disease as well as improve the health of your heart.

Adopt a Home Workout

Even if you don’t have a piece of workout equipment at home, you can create a home workout that helps to keep you fit. YouTube has a variety of workouts totally free, all tailored to different ages and abilities. Simply put it up on your computer or television, grab a water bottle, and get moving. However, it’s probably best to start with something low impact for the beginning and slowly work your way up.

Find an Active Hobby

Hobbies have never been more important, especially hobbies that help you move a little -- no matter how small that movement may be. For example, knitting, while made up of very small movements, is great for dexterity and arthritis.

Staying at home can feel daunting, but it’s an opportunity to explore things you may not have had the time for previously. Seize the day and make sure that you don’t let your focus on health and wellness slip by.
