1. MAKE A SCHEDULE. BE INTENTIONAL. HAVE A PLAN!
If you don’t consciously create a plan of action and schedule in your workouts, chances are, you will take the path of least resistance — a path likely filled with Netflix and wine!
Schedule in your workouts! Block offtime. Decide — in advance — the WWWH of your workouts. What will you do? Dance around your living room? Run your condo stairs? When will you do it? Morning? At lunch? Where will you do it? Do you have a home gym in the garage? Can you follow online workouts on your computer? How will you make it happen? What accommodations do you need to make? Does your spouse have to watch the kids? Do you need to block yourself out of Zoom meetings?
2. CONSIDER A “FAMILY CHALLENGE”
Be creative. Base the parameters of the challenge on the number and age of your kids and their interests. Maybe each family member counts how many steps they take throughout day. Everyone has to get creative to accrue steps— “forget” things upstairs, play active video games, pace on conference calls, etc. Or, try a family push-up or squat challenge. The winner gets to pick family movie night or have their favorite meal delivered.

Reduce stress this holiday season
Stress and overwhelm are synonymous with the holidays now, so it’s extra important to have tried and tested ways to get centered and back into the joy of the season. There are lots of things you may already be doing, or can tweak slightly to help you relax and feel more present
EASY 5: FIVE TIPS FOR ANYBODY LOOKING TO STAY FIT WHILE QUARANTINED
