The times are such that saying indoors is the safest environment. The best way to safeguard your family is to keep everyone involved at home so that staying at home is a happy occasion than something being told to be done forcefully. But, when it comes to having kids at home, and your schedule, it becomes a tad bit difficult to focus on yourself as kids take most of the time. This is one of the biggest reasons for parents, especially mothers, to neglect their health to keep the family indoors, safe and happy. So why not take out the time of working out with the kids to focus on yourself, and also spend some bonding time with kids?
Listed below are some fun yet effective workouts, which are apt for adults as well as kids and can be fun ways to hang out with the kids too:
Don’t you see the social media trends where everyone is hula hooping their way for fun? But did you know hula hoop is a great way to reduce weight, yet does not feel like an actual workout? This is a great activity to introduce to your kids too, as it will not just make them extremely flexible but also keep you fit. It is best if you want to motivate your kids for gymnasts or dancing, as it helps keep weight in check and is fun to do too!
We know going out is toxic for the kids, then why not plant a net at home and play some indoor badminton with the kids to let them know that sports can be played indoors too. Staying indoor does not mean being glued to computer screens all the time. Badminton is a sport, which is fun to play with family, and also easy for kids to pick too.
Why not skateboard with the child and have some fun? Skating is one such activity, which you can do with the kids. It is not just a game but is a great way to stay in shape. It may take you some time to find your balance, but once it is there, it is almost impossible not to love this sport. Did you know skating kills as many calories as you do while jogging? Yes, you’ve heard it right. Jogging keeps you healthy, and that’s how skating does too.
Why not hop on a cycle with your kids and go out for a short period on your cycles to bond and to exercise too? Cycling is healthy, keeps the heart better and also helps you lose calories. As for kids, cycling is a fun activity that they do with their friends for laughter. So why not become a part of your kids’ gang or tribe and take a nice bike ride to stay fit?
Hence, it is essential to think of exercises or activities that kids would like to do, in contrast to what you do to keep fit. If you want to take out time for kids and to work out together, these activities can help you stay in shape and also have that extra time with kids to bond.
