From the youngest to the oldest of us, many people continue to struggle with the new normal.

However, it’s more important than ever to maintain mental and physical wellness. To help you

stay fit and healthy through the pandemic and beyond, Anya Willis from FitKids has pooled some

great resources for you to use.


Selecting a Workout


Forget about your home and what equipment you have for a minute. What type of workout is

best for you? What do you enjoy?


● Decide on your goals and choose a plan that will help you achieve them.

● Consider yoga, at least, part of the time for its particularly broad benefits to your health.

● Running boosts your mood and relieves stress.


Set Up Your Space


You don’t need an expansive, fully equipped gym to keep up a regular fitness routine.


● Shape points out you can engage in a terrific yoga routine for small spaces.

● If you have a flex room, you can design a gym tailored to your needs.

● You can also create a routine that allows you to work out with no equipment at all.


Remain Holistic


Keeping your body strong and supple is critical, but it’s also important to care for your mind.

Your family should engage in well-rounded pastimes so you all stay well and happy.


● Spend some quiet time meditating as a family.

● Bond over some wholesome recipes you can cook together!

● Have fun and blow off steam with a family game night.

● Maintain a positive atmosphere at home to alleviate stress and tension.


Keep Nutrition Top of Mind


Regardless of what’s going on in the world, eating healthy is a tried-and-true method for staying

healthy.


● Find new ways to add more vegetables and whole grains to your diet.

● Try new cooking methods like an electric pressure cooker or air fryer.

● Add a daily multivitamin to ensure you’re getting all the nutrients you need.


No matter your age, how much space you have, or how much equipment you have at your

disposal, you and your family can stay physically active and mentally engaged. Look to these

solutions for you and yours, and the new normal will be a healthy one.
