TeaMPT shares tips to keep your body and mind engaged while at home.

Move your body
Try to engage in some form of exercise every day. Have an accountability buddy and make a date over zoom, facetime, or over the phone to do exercises together.

Read a book
Take a break from watching the news and reading the paper and escape in the story of a good book.

Meditate
Meditation is a practice to help focus our thoughts and attention. A regular meditation practice can help decrease stress levels. If you have a smartphone, there are many options for guided meditation apps. We recommend https://insighttimer.com/

Do something that you enjoy
Try to participate in something that you enjoy every day. Some ideas include going for a walk outside in your favorite park (following appropriate COVID guidelines of course), reading a chapter of your book, working on a craft project, or cooking a new recipe.

Be social
This probably looks different than what we’re used to. Some safe ways to remain social include facetime or zoom calls with family and friends, writing a letter to a friend, or joining a virtual book club.

Brain Games
Keep your brain sharp by taking a stab at a crossword puzzle or playing Sudoku. If you have a smartphone there are lots of apps for brain games. We recommend https://www.lumosity.com

Get some sleep
Sleep is important for both mental and physical health. Make sure you have a good bedtime routine so you can set yourself up for a good night’s sleep.

Please share your favorite ways to keep your body and mind engaged on our
Facebook or Instagram pages.

We look forward to helping you achieve your wellness goals.
