National Mental Health Awareness Month

May is National Mental Health Awareness Month. This affects kids and adults alike.

I just wanted to compile some links and tips to learn more about what this month is about, to help reduce stress and anxiety, and ways to seek help if needed.

Mental Health America is a place to take a screen test, learn to take action, get informed, donate, and more.

The National Alliance on Mental Illness is a great, overall place to look into to get info, find support, and get involved

Here’s a post about 9 Ways To Improve Your Mental Health Today , includes getting regular exercise and a healthy diet.

The Pandemic Crisis Services Response Coalition has info and helplines related to mental health, suicide prevention, crisis intervention, and Covid19

If you know or have more info to share, let me know, and I’ll add it to the post for others to see.

And if you want to help and check in with your people, remember to not skip over checking on your “strong” friend. They may need it too.

A Week Of Dumbbell Workouts

On our last fitness post, I shared a week’s worth of Bodyweight workouts

A Week Of Bodyweight Workouts

This post is for those who have a set of dumbbells to use for their home workouts

We have 2 strength workouts, 2 circuit workouts, and 1 AMRAP style workout

I put them all in graphic form to make it easier for you to save them and try them out. If you do, post them on social, and tag us @1life1youfitness

5 Healthy(ish) Things To Do While On Quarantine

There’s only sooo much Netflix you can watch before you start thinking how you can be the next Tiger King…

I made a list of a few things you can do to pass the time

1. Try Out Those Pinterest Recipes

I think everyone who is on Pinterest has a board of food recipes that they say they’ll try but never do.

Now is a great time to pick one (or all of them) and see how they turn out.

2. Exercise (duh!)

Not being able to go to the gym or go to your classes should not be an excuse to skip your workouts.

And, you definitely don’t need equipment for a great workout.

Bodyweight workouts and exercises can be just as challenging. And you can keep things interesting by changing variations, sets, reps, times…

I can name about 20 different leg exercise variations to do without any equipment needed.

Need help, or guidance? Email me for a 30 Day Free Bodyweight Workout Plan, through the 1Life1You Fitness Training app.

3. Pick Up A Hobby

Take this time to learn something new. Play an instrument. Learn to sew/knit. Write. Paint.

Bring your creativity out and start doing and making

4. Take a walk

You’ll drive yourself crazy being in the house 24 hours a day.

Go outside. Get some fresh air.

Be smart. Keep practicing social distancing

5. Get Some Sleep

A lot of us really don’t know what a proper amount of sleep feels like.

When’s the last time you’ve had 7-9 hours of sleep?

Well… now is the perfect time. Sleeping in a little longer has been amazing for us. How about you?

That’s 5 things. Do you have any more that can be added to our Healthy(ish) list? Let me know.
