Staying Fit (Physically and Mentally) During the Lockdown

When was the last time you spent a month or more stuck at home? Probably never. Yet that is where most of us find ourselves today. Instead of being bored and frustrated with the way things are, why not take this forced withdrawal from the world to experiment with finding new ways to improve yourself? Not only will you avoid falling into an aimless rut of increasing screen time and takeout, but you will emerge a better version of you. 

Three Simple Ideas to Take Better Care of Yourself in Quarantine

These quick ideas offer a few ways you can make the most of your social distancing by focusing on taking better care of yourself and your family:

Cook meals from scratch.

No more excuses! A full work-from-home schedule still leaves you with plenty of time to discover how easy and delicious home-cooking can be. Ditch the delivery, and crack open a cookbook! Not only will you eat healthier, but you can save a ton of money!

No cookbooks and no idea how to cook? No problem. Learn these quick and easy cooking methods from The Spruce Eats, and you will always be ready to whip up a meal. Are you running low on fresh ingredients? Don’t despair, you can still make something tasty with these pantry staple recipes from Real Simple.

Reconnect with your family and with yourself.

Having the family crammed together 24/7 is going to end badly, right? Not necessarily. Tempers may more easily fray than usual, and the kids (as well as their parents) aren’t always going to get along perfectly, but spending time with one another is an excellent way to build stronger bonds, gain a deeper understanding of one another, and draw strength from being together. Organizing special events and activities for your family is a great way to break up the monotony. Try some of these ideas for things to do with your young children from Parade.

Those who are weathering the lockdown solo are facing a much steeper challenge when it comes to keeping their spirits up. Exercising and spending time outdoors while remaining safe can help. In addition, you may want to engage in self-reflection, meditation, self-care, and a little pampering. Remember to take the time to connect with friends and family members, even virtually from time to time.

Plan for the future.

It may seem like this is the new normal, but isn’t. Things will get better, and we will all return to our regular lives. But that doesn’t mean you have to fall back into the same old bad habits you had for years. Take this time to make positive plans for your future. Evaluate where you are now, and where you wish you were, then figure out how to get there. This global pandemic taught us things can change in a very short period of time, and putting things off until someday isn’t the best option.
