Indoor exercises for the cold, Winter months
Playing with kids
Whether you are a parent or grandparent, staying active with the kids can make it fun and create memories. During the cold winter months, kids can get stir-crazy themselves, and will be very happy to get active with you. Playing games like hide and seek, or a family dance competition can be great exercise and a lot of fun.
There are some simple calisthenics you can do as part of senior home care, so that you still get a good workout from the session. You won’t need any special equipment to participate in these calisthenics. If you commit to doing some form of activity like this three or four times a week, it will keep you in good shape through the winter. Some possible types of calisthenics you might want to include on your program include lunges, squats, leg lifts, push-ups, and crunches. If any of these options seem daunting, choose the calisthenics that don’t cause you discomfort and are repeatable several times a week through the winter.
