Balance is not something you find. It's something you create.
- Jana Kingsford

Time at home means spending even more time online - home schooling, working, video meetings for work, and video chats with friends and family... Not to mention all that binge watching - last time at the grocery store they weren't just out of toilet paper... they were out of popcorn too! Sitting time has a way of just slipping past our attention. 

One of the biggest strategies for managing problems is to try avoiding them in the first place. Lifestyle factors can play a big role in your physical wellbeing and how you feel. That's good news, because lifestyle factors are considered modifiable. YOU can change them!

The notion of "motion is the lotion - if we rest we rust" speaks to reducing your sense of fragility and increasing your resilience when it comes time for any of those other activities in your day. 

Figuring out what to do is difficult. It likely puts you back in front of a computer searching Doctor Google, and... *SQUIRREL* - you're off chasing another distraction.

We've put together a guide of basic exercises to do during COVID precautions because we know you don't like wasting your time.

When it doubt, check it out. If you are unsure of your health status, have multiple health issues, or may be pregnant speak with your doctor before introducing any changes to your health, exercise, or lifestyle routines. This general guidance is intended for people in self-quarantine without any symptoms or diagnosis of acute respiratory illness. It should not replace medical guidance in case of any health condition.
