Workout of the Day-Rashmi

2020-03-31T10:33:37-04:00March 31st, 2020|

Our first workout of the day on YouTube is now available. Join our group exercise instructor, Rashmi as she leads you through a chair workout. The only equipment you need is a chair & some weights. If you do not have weights at home, grab a can of soup, veggies or something out of our pantry to mimic the weights. You can also just use your own body weight during the workout.

Rashmi’s class is about 20 minutes long.  Join her workout here

Virtual Playdates

2020-03-30T15:20:13-04:00March 30th, 2020|

Some great information from our very own Rebecca Chadwick.
Social distancing doesn’t mean that you must cancel your playdates! You can do them virtually! Skype, Zoom, WhatsApp, are at least three free ways that you can set up virtual playdates for your children. The following web address takes you to a site that has a list of ways that kids can play virtually. Find out more

So check it out! It would be great for older kids as well.

Remember, I am thinking about you and praying that you are all safe. I will send more ideas next week!

Take a break from the news. Constantly watching, listening to or reading news stories and social media may exacerbate you or your family members’ stress and anxiety. Be sure to disconnect from time to time.

If you are starting back with your fitness routine, go slow. Don’t push yourself too hard right away. Establish a routine. Find an app that helps you keep track of your exercises or gives you suggestions for new routines.

Popcorn as a Snack:

Lightly seasoned popcorn can be a healthy snack. That’s because it is a whole grain, low in calories, and packed with fiber. According to the American Heart Association, high-fiber whole grains have been linked to a lower risk of heart disease, diabetes, some cancers and other health problems.
