How can I exercise when I’m social distancing and stuck indoors?
Thanks for your question. Right now, we are all adjusting to new schedules and life routines. We congratulate you on wanting to make sure to keep yourself healthy by following guidelines regarding social distancing and minimizing your chance of getting the coronavirus.
While lots has changed, it’s important to try to stick to a schedule and be active. Exercise is important for your physical health and can also help relieve stress. Here are some ideas:
- Get up and walk around your home every 1 hour for 5-10 minutes.
- Try these stretches and exercises at home. You can also search online for fitness videos to do.
- If you have a backyard, we recommend going outside. Please make sure to only have contact with household members who are not sick, and no one outside of your household. Also, a friendly reminder to wash your hands once you go back inside.
