It’s been almost 2 months since we’ve all been grounded at home and if you have kids, grandchildren, etc. the days may seem even longer. You may be hard-pressed to find activities to fill that time. Below are 5 suggestions you and your family can do together:
Gardening – whether you have a backyard or not, going to your local garden shops (curbside pickups) and getting some seeds that you can plant in pots, or vegetable and herb baby pots that you can plant in your garden is a great outdoors activity to do especially as the weather gets better.Yoga or Tai Chi – Both practices have benefits for people of all ages such as increasing positivity or mood, alleviate pain and discomfort in muscles and joints, better sleep, improve balance and coordination plus many more advantages.
Bring out the board games, cards and puzzles – Remember Monopoly and Scrabble? You won’t even know where the time went.
Cooking or a Bake–off! – Learn some culinary skills with your kids and try baking or cooking some simple recipes. You can have a cupcake or bread making competition and all the family members can do a taste test with the winner(s) getting a prize – a cup cake!
Put on a play or choreograph a dance – You know you want to! It’s a fun way of using the right brain and getting the creative juices going. Have a play theme like star wars or a Disney movie. Other ideas are doing a TikTok video and then sharing it on zoom with friends and other family members. Oh goodness just can’t get away from more screen time!Message from our Campus Chiropractic Team to you:
We hope you’re all doing well in these challenging times! This has definitely been an interesting time for us and we’ve had to make many adjustments.
If you haven’t tried yoga before, you should definitely consider it! It doesn’t require any equipment, and it can be very therapeutic. It can be a bit daunting at first, but try some beginner classes either in the Hatha or Vinyasa (flow) style. Since many of us aren’t able to receive treatment, yoga can be a way to treat your own body to loosen things up and in some cases help to manage injuries such as low back pain.
Stay safe and we can’t wait to see you all again! Stay tuned for news on re-opening day!
We are getting ready to welcome you back. More info coming soon!
Until then, our virtual doors are open!
