Ways to stay active in your home!

14th May 2020

Staying active is one way to keep fit and mentally strong. We’ve put together some activity ideas and tips to help keep you physically and mentally active in your home!

Take an online fitness class 

Whilst many of us are still at home, personal trainers, fitness instructors, dance and yoga teachers are taking their classes online so people can get involved from the comfort of their own homes.  

Video conferencing software and live-streaming on platforms like YouTube and Facebook has made exercising remotely easier than ever before. There are many YouTubers but P.E. with Joe seems to be a family favourite.

Get crafty  

Staying active doesn’t have to mean running or working out. Exercising your creative side can also help us to challenge ourselves and keep busy.  

Crafts like knitting, crocheting, weaving, ceramics, collaging and woodwork allow you to immerse yourself in a skilful but relaxing activity. Just like meditation or practicing yoga, the easy and repetitive nature of crafting can help you reach a state of mindfulness.  

Cook and bake 

Not everyone has the time to cook or bake from scratch in the course of their normal lives. But this might be just the opportunity that you’ve been waiting for.   

Baking in particular seems to have become very popular in the last few weeks, with social media feeds jammed with friends’ sweet creations and lots of banana loafs! It’s also a great opportunity to get the kids involved and can create memories that last a lifetime, not to mention lots of delicious treats! 

Find time for hobbies you love 

It’s important that we find the time to do the things that we love.  Even if it’s just for a short time, make sure you listen to some of your favourite music, read a book by your favourite author or watch a must-see movie.  

And that’s our top tips to keeping active in your homes! We will be back soon with more tips, activities and helpful information to keep you and your children busy.
