7 Ways You Can Stay Active During Quarantine

Where I live, we are still in quarantine. Yes, we are opening back up, but places like gyms, public pools and trampoline parks have yet to open. Being in quarantine can get rid of your motivation to do anything. Your bed and couch are so close, and you can order food from your phone!

Don't let this stop you from being active though! There are plenty of things you can do from the comfort of your own home or neighborhood that you can do! If your gyms aren't open like mine, here are seven ways you can still stay active.

1. Go for a walk

This is one of the more simple things you can do to stay active. Whether you find a trail to walk on or you just walk around your neighborhood, it's a great way to keep your body going.

2. Swim in your own pool

If you're lucky enough to have your own pool, you can DEFINITELY take advantage of it to stay active. Personally, I've been doing laps and using water weights in my pool. You could also do some water aerobics! It exercises your arms, legs, and core. It's also very relaxing!

3. Do yoga

Giphy

If you have a yoga mat, or even if you don't, this is a great way to not only relax your mind but destress and stretch out your body. This is especially good to do if you have been stressing out a lot or have any tension in your body.

4. Chloe Ting Workout Program

Chloe Ting Workout Program is available for anyone to take advantage of on YouTube. It's a fourteen day workout that is known for being tough but works super well for your body. A lot of my friends did this challenge and it showed amazing results. It works out your abs, legs, arms, and chest. The best part about this is that no extra equipment is needed...you just need you!

5. Climb your stairs

Giphy

Climbing up and down your stairs is a great way to work out your legs at home. You could even jump up your stairs, as long as it's safe!

6. Ride your bike

Giphy

If you have a bike, you can ride it around your neighborhood or ride it on a nearby trail! Not only does it exercise your legs but it's fun too!

7. Play games on the Wii

Giphy

Although this is playing a video game, I can assure you that playing the Wii is a great workout. Playing games like Just Dance, Wii Fit or just plain Wii Sports are great ways to move your body around and exercise. Going all out in Just Dance and trying to win is the best way to work up a sweat

At the end of their last episode, "Grey's Anatomy" teased the return of another character from Meredith's past. After the return of Patrick Dempsey's, Derek Shepherd, Grey's fans know that no one is off-limits.

The return of these characters comes after Meredith was diagnosed with COVID-19 and began experiencing hallucinations of her loved ones.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.

All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

5 Movies And TV Shows That Got Mental Illness Right​

There is a very fine line between representation for mentally ill people and demonizing them for the sake of entertainment. Hollywood has a tendency to sensationalize mental illness, but these shows and movies got it right.

At the risk of being dismissive of all the progress we've made, mental health representation is still seriously lacking. Many shows fall into the traps of making their mentally ill character violent, making professional help seem useless, or making characters who don't reflect the reality for people living with mental illness.
