Written By: happycamper

This is a guest blog written by Stephanie Haywood of mylifeboost.com.

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. Couple the lack of physical activity with all the extra stress that comes with the current COVID-19 outbreak, and those overwhelming feelings can get even more intense. So, how can you break the coronavirus anxiety cycle and start feeling like your old selves again? 

Getting back into the swing of your wellness, exercise, and life routines doesn’t have to feel overwhelming. In fact, figuring out how to stay fit and relaxed at home can make it easier to stick to fitness goals and eliminate boredom even without a pandemic looming. So, if you’re ready to take your family’s self-isolation wellness and self-care habits to the next level, and fight those feelings of anxiety head-on Happy Camper Live hopes the following tips help.
