Get Active From Home! 

We get it, it can be frustrating not being able to make it to the gym. So you may be thinking… how can I meet my fitness goals in the comfort of my own home? Well, Ridgway Hemp is here to help! Here are our top tips on how to stay in your active routine while social distancing. 

Get Motivated 

Motivation can be the hardest part. If you make it a goal to keep active while in quarantine, make sure you can stick to it! Like setting any other goal, make sure your expectations are worthwhile and achievable. When creating your schedule for the week, determine a time you’re going to dedicate to your workout and set an alarm. On top of that, track your progress! Write down your workouts, the time it took, how it made you feel, and why you want to continue to stay active. Mindset is an important first step of any goal! 

Take Walks Every Day 

It doesn’t even matter how long of the walk, but make sure to get outside a few times a day. It’s great for your body to get some fresh air and move for just a few minutes. To make it easy, attempt to take a short walk after every meal. Taking walks after eating help with digestion, speeds up your metabolism, and can provide you with better sleep. Enjoy the outdoors, and get moving! 

Get Creative With Equipment

During this time, it is extremely easy to make excuses to skip your workout. Not everyone has access to a home gym, free weights, and other equipment. This is the time to get creative! Did you know you can make a backpack with three old yearbooks weigh about 20 pounds? Or grab some laundry detergent containers to tone your biceps. The options are endless and you can be surprised how much you can accomplish with some basic household objects. Need some recovery for your muscles afterward? Our Muscle Balm will give your muscles the fire and ice it needs to push through the next virtual at-home workout! 

You Can Still Do It!

It’s true… you can do about anything you set your mind to. You CAN take care of yourself and be active at this time. In the long run, it will leave you feeling happier, healthier and ready to take on the world! Looking for some more self-care?
