If you are like most people in California, or anywhere in the country for that matter, you are probably staying at home in light of recent events. Good for you.
Over the next several weeks, you will get to know your house on a more intimate basis. You will also burn through several Netflix series like nobody’s business. You will also eat a lot of soup, hot dogs and grilled cheese sandwiches. You might even finally fix that leaky faucet, but only because you have nothing better to do.
What is really frightening is that you have this incredible urge to dust off that exercise bike and actually use it.
While you are stuck at home, you struggle to think of ways to keep busy. You certainly don’t want boredom to set in and turn your mood even worse. It is difficult to stay busy while stuck in your home.
What you need are ways to beat boredom. Spa Max, your source for hot tubs in Corona, offers ways in which you can beat boredom.
Being at home and lounging on the couch will decrease your exercise levels. At least at work, you walked from your desk to the lunchroom and back several times a day. It will help both physically and mentally if you suck it up and do a few jumping jacks or run up and down the stairs every hour.
