Stay Active

As our daily lives are filled with more indoor time, there are many ways to stay healthy and active.

Indoor Wellness

Here are a few ideas for staying active indoors (Disclaimer: Individuals should consult their physician before starting any new exercise program).

Outdoor Wellness

The current Shelter in Place order allows for individuals to take walks and exercise provided the individuals comply with the Social Distancing Requirements.

  • Visit a nearby County or State Park - These are all still open as well.
  • Head out on the trail. Elk Grove has miles of trail systems that follow along our beautiful creeks.
  • Walk/run around your neighborhood. Pets need activity too!
  • Work in the yard or plant a garden.

Stay Connected

Although we’re all social distancing physically, as humans we need to stay connected emotionally. Try one or two of these ideas out every day.

  • Call or Facetime a friend or relative you haven’t spoken to in a while.
  • Write a letter to family or friends.
  • Support a local restaurant - Many restaurants are still open for take out or delivery orders. 
  • Volunteer -  There are many opportunities to volunteer to help those in our community.  
  • Take breaks from watching, reading, or listening to news stories, including social media. Hearing about the pandemic repeatedly can be upsetting.
  • Take care of your body. Take deep breaths, stretch, or meditate. Try to eat healthy, well-balanced meals, exercise regularly, get plenty of sleep.  
  • Connect with others. Talk with people you trust about your concerns and how you are feeling.
  • Work on Mindfulness - Mindfulness is a type of meditation in which you focus on being intensely aware of what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment. Practicing mindfulness involves breathing methods, guided imagery, and other practices to relax the body and mind and help reduce stress.

Exercise your Brain
