Written By: happycamper

This is a guest blog written by Stephanie Haywood of

Working in your sweatpants sounds pretty sweet, but when it comes to working out, being stuck inside your home can leave you feeling more than a little anxious. When your gym is closed and your kids can’t burn off excess energy, it’s easy to get overwhelmed.
