Wellness Wednesday: Let's Get Moving



LET'S GET MOVING:

EASY EXERCISES AND GAMES TO STAY ACTIVE

AT HOME


by Misshell Aguirre


Hey there, future fitness champions! Are you ready to have some fun while staying active at

home? We've got just the thing for you. Whether you're looking to burn off some energy, stay healthy, or just have a blast, these easy exercises and games will keep you moving and

grooving. So, put on your favorite workout gear and let's dive in!


1. Jumping Jacks

Jumping jacks are a classic exercise that gets your heart pumping and your muscles moving.

Start with your feet together and arms by your sides. Then, jump your feet out to the sides

while raising your arms overhead. Jump back to the starting position and repeat. Try to do as many jumping jacks as you can in one minute—it's a great way to warm up!


2. Animal Walks

Get ready to unleash your inner animal with some fun animal walks! Try walking like a bear by getting down on all fours and moving forward and backward. Or, channel your inner frog by squatting down and hopping forward. You can even try walking like a crab by sitting on the floor, bending your knees, and walking backward using your hands and feet. Let your

imagination run wild!


3. Simon Says

Who doesn't love a game of Simon Says? This classic game is not only fun but also a great way to get moving. Have someone be the "Simon" and give commands like "Simon says touch your toes" or "Simon says do 10 jumping jacks." Just remember, if Simon doesn't say "Simon says," you shouldn't do the action! It's a hilarious way to stay active and test your listening skills.


4. Dance Party

Turn up the music and let loose with a dance party! Pick your favorite tunes and dance like

nobody's watching. Don't worry about getting the moves perfect—just have fun and let your

body move to the beat. You can even challenge your family members to a dance-off or create your own choreography. Dance parties are a fantastic way to stay active while having a blast!


5. Balloon Keep-Up

Grab a balloon and get ready for some balloon keep-up fun! Inflate a balloon and try to keep

it in the air using only your hands or feet. See how long you can keep the balloon from

touching the ground—it's a great way to improve coordination and agility. You can even

challenge your friends or family members to see who can keep the balloon up the longest.

Remember, staying active is not only important for your physical health but also for your

mental well-being. So, whether you're bouncing around like a kangaroo or grooving to your

favorite tunes, just keep moving and having fun!
