Have a Dance Party
Now obviously I’m not saying host a 2021 corona super spreader, I mean pop some music on and get everyone in the house dancing! Live alone? Call up some friends on Zoom or Facetime and get that party started! Have theme nights and make it a weekly event. Working out with a buddy is always a bonus! It’s a great way to keep you moving and get in some quality time with those close to you!
Yoga is a great way to slow down and relax at the end of the day. It can also be a rather rigorous exercise requiring strength and balance. Adding a bit of yoga into your life will keep those cold stiffened muscles of yours, loose and limber through the winter months.
Exercise During Those Pesky Commercials
Why commercials are so frikkin’ long is way beyond me, but when you add them all up you’ve got yourself a sweet workout window. Throw in a set of crunches on the first commercial, squats on the second and burpees on the third! You not only did a whole circuit, but didn’t miss a bit of your show!
