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.

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.

Health Benefits Of Sleep

Adults should be getting 7-9 hours of sleep.

EVERY. NIGHT.

Non Negotiable.

When it comes to fitness and changing lifestyles, this usually is the last thing targeted (behind working out & nutrition). But, it should really come first. Just look at it from a 24 hour view. What do you spend the most time doing, Working out, Eating, or Sleeping?

I know. I know. You may be one of those, “I thrive with 4 hours sleep!” people, and guess what? You’re wrong. You are wrecking your body and mind, but just not seeing it right away. How is your heart rate? Blood pressure? Eating habits? Mood?

Some studies say that more than 1/3 of people are sleep deprived. 1 in 3!

Getting a consistent good nights sleep can have a ton of benefits on your health. And can also help you avoid a bunch of other health problems. Here’s a quick list of some benefits of getting the proper amount of sleep…
