Ways to Stay Active at Home

 

An innumerable amount of people have been ordained to stay active at home due to the series of lockdowns, and the lives of those people are now spent within their homes. With this, you can say that the stress that comes with this new normal can keep you from maintaining your physical and emotional well-being. The majority of your daily routines remain restricted given the situation, and it can be very difficult to find the motivation to exercise and remain active at home. In this context, having an active lifestyle may seem ominous more than ever. There are various ways to stay active at home in a beautiful and exclusive community by simply improving your everyday lifestyle with some routine activities.

Here are ways to stay active at home:

Keeping your room organized matches the environment of what a luxury home entails.

 

  1. Keep your living space clean and tidy.

Keeping your luxury home tidy is the ultimate double-duty activity because not only are you getting your home clean and spotless, but it is also a great way to move around the house while playing your favorite music.

Making your bed in the morning, rearranging your walk-in closet, and vacuuming the carpet are the chores that get you moving. Dusting off your house, cleaning the cars, and sweeping the backyard also keep you upright and on the move.

  1. Be your own master chef at home.

Turn the television on, watch some cooking shows and indulge yourself with delicious recipes in your spacious kitchen as you make breakfast, lunch, or dinner for your family. Loosen up and dash around the kitchen area as you gather ingredients, stretch out as you reach for items on higher shelves, or do simple stretches as you wait for the water to boil on the stove.

And why not try something new during these times? Unleash the inner baker in you by making your own favorite pastry. Baking is such a vigorous activity and hobby that can help you work on your arm muscles while kneading the dough. Indulge yourself with your newly baked treats that are perfect while reading your favorite book. Or why not try to brew different types of coffee and practice on some latte arts you can surely enjoy. 

Trying these physical activities are more fun by turning up the music to stimulate and stir up your movements as you make your family’s meal, baked products, and the perfect cup of coffee. Grand living always starts with yourself and spreading these simple luxurious lifestyles for a healthy and active relationship with your family.  

  1. Make the most out of your television time.

We live in an era of never-ending content streaming and everything is available in just one simple click of a remote control or swipe of a finger.

Remove the chill in ‘Netflix and chill’ and start working out as you watch your favorite movies or series. Hop on your stationary bike or treadmill as you start the latest episode of your chosen documentary. You can also do some stretches and workouts while lying down on your favorite spot in the living room.

  1. Stay active and walk with your furry friends.

Walking your pets is a vigorous task that includes physical activity. Aside from being essential for your pets’ health, pet owners also enjoy health and social benefits by walking their pets a few times a week. This activity does not only help you maintain the physical structure of your body, but it also provides you with health benefits including lower blood pressure, stronger bones and muscles, and improved cardiovascular fitness.

In addition to the health benefits that you can acquire by taking walks with your pets, this activity also motivates you to continue your daily walking exercise, as compared to taking a walk by yourself. Instead of burying yourself on the couch with boredom, move up and enjoy your dog’s company as you indulge in the serene environment of the Italian-inspired community of Portofino Alabang. This one-of-a-kind luxury real estate development is optimally positioned for you to wake up to a scenic sunrise view, polished lawns, lush landscapes, and wide spaces.

  1. Practice yoga in your garden.

Given this New Normal, most people spend their daily lives feeling ungrounded; and that being the case, there is nothing quite like immersing yourself in a comforting lush landscape to help ground yourself in the present. Practicing yoga in your own garden allows you to draw your focus and recenter yourself. It also allows you to get in shape while being safe inside your living space. One thing we should be grateful for is being given a chance to adapt freely in times like this, a place where you can rest your mind and be inspired by what luxury living entails in an exclusive environment at Portofino Alabang.

A yoga experience outdoors makes you more conscious of your five senses as it activates portions of the brain that make you more present. The aroma of the grass on your polished courtyard gardens and the fresh air from your Italian-inspired community promotes deeper breathing awareness. Aside from these wellness benefits, yoga also provides physical benefits like improved balance, flexibility, and strength. It also helps ease discomfort, back pain, swollen joints, and body-wide inflammations. These benefits will help you achieve your healthy living goal.

Biking around an exclusive community surrounded by vibrant greenery and luxury house and lot developments gives the best kind of outdoor vibe for biking.

 

  1. Bike around the community.

Though it may not be safe to go cycling outside yet, biking around a private, exclusive, and thematic-inspired community maybe your next interesting activity. Cycling can boost your mood by releasing adrenaline and endorphins that are produced when achieving or surpassing a fitness goal. Another benefit of cycling that is very timely these days is that it improves your immune system by waking up a certain number of white blood cells and increasing the production of essential proteins.

If the present situation has made it difficult for you to take part in your favorite workout routine or other forms of physical activity, worry not, as you can do these at your own pace. All you need to do is try new workouts and find something that you enjoy in the serene environment of Portofino Alabang.

  1. Redecorate your backyard garden for a thematic living experience.

You can entertain yourself and make a livelier backyard set-up by just touching up some new elements and redesigning some of its spaces. Remodeling your luxury home will be a physical ordeal since its huge spaces will surely make you stretch and stride a lot. 

Think of other spaces in your luxury home that you would like to renovate or redecorate.You can set up a gazebo tent for your barbeque picnics or make a reading nook. You can also turn your backyard into a more Italian-themed garden by putting up some garden tables surrounded by terra cotta pots with box hedges, climbing vines, and gravel pathways that will certainly bring your Italian inspiration come to life.
