Fun Ways to Keep Busy and Active at Home
How do you spend your time at home? For those of us adjusting to being home more than usual, keeping busy – mentally as well as physically - can help improve mood and health.
According to a study done by Psychology Today, being busy helps with overall well-being. Psychologist Dr. Annie Varvaryan says, “Staying busy gives us the opportunity to reduce rumination and worry over things that we can't go back and change, or things we can't control about our future.”
Maintaining a set schedule during the day, can lead to an appreciation of 'living in the moment' and being happier. Dr. Varvaryan adds, “When we are engaging in healthy busyness, we have the opportunity to stay focus on the here and now.”
Being home can involve more than watching TV and doing loads of laundry. Consider these activities to stay active, engaged and well.
