How To Stay Active At Home

  • Sharebar

Fitness is everything these days, whether it’s an early morning jog, getting an hour in at the gym, or riding your bicycle to work. But sometimes, getting out of the house isn’t as easy as it sounds. The weather may be terrible (or even dangerous), you may be severely agoraphobic, any number of things that might keep you indoors. There are, however, many things you can do within the comfort of your own walls to stay active at home and enjoy the best of home healthcare.

Hit the Home Gym

If you can’t go to the gym, bring the gym to you. There are thousands of exercise and Yoga videos on YouTube, offering workouts and stretches of all levels of difficulty and experience. You might even be able to get some weight training in by (carefully) lifting cans of paint. Even if watching instructors on video isn’t your thing, you can still stay active while watching your favorite TV shows or movies. Stretch, lift, jog in place, but keep your body moving at all times so your muscles don’t atrophy.

Get Stuff Done

There are always things to around the house, and if that’s where you’re going to be, it’s time to get those things done. Even simple jobs like sweeping will get you off the couch and moving about, and that’s what fitness really is. Tasks like making the bed, shoveling snow and arranging things in your house will keep your limbs active and heart pumping. Yardwork is a workout all on its own – bending your knees, stretching your arms, even simply walking about.

Make Fitness Fun

Just if you’re at home doesn’t mean you have to be on your own. Anyone who’s ever had young kids, or a dog, knows that playtime can be exhausting. Whether it’s an improvised game, some fun on the Wii or the Kinect, or simply roughhousing, having fun with your children or your animals will not only keep your body in shape, but is also great for bonding time and the sheer fun of play.

Dance the Atrophy Away

But even if you are on your own, there’s still a lot of fun to be had. Draw the blinds, put your favorite music on, and just dance. With nobody around, it’s the perfect opportunity to let your hair down and go wild. You’ll work up a sweat listening to music you love, with no one to judge you or critique your dancing skills. What could possibly go wrong?
