Staying Active Indoors

For many, being stuck inside can be overwhelming and depressing. One way to keep your mental health up is to stay active, but what does this mean when you are stuck inside?

There are many physical activities you can do to burn off excess energy when stuck inside your house. The stairs can be used to replace your stair climber and as a base for push ups for those wanting to start. Make sure you start higher then move to a lower step until you can eventually do straight off of the floor.

Cleaning house, while not fun for many, also provides exercise as does spring cleaning. Take advantage of the time and get a little work out at the same time.

Find fun activities to do to keep yourself amused. Emotional wellness is important and by keeping your mind engaged it is easier to ward off depression. There are a lot of different crafting and carpentry tutorials on the internet; go ahead and take up that hobby.

Another thing we need to ensure we look after is our spiritual health. Set time aside every day to just spend time with a God. Meditate, pray, reflect. This is very calming and not only strengthens your soul it provides a sense of peace and calm.

During this time of isolation, your emotional, spiritual and physical health all depend on you staying active indoors.
