Being cooped up at home for weeks on end can chip away at our well being, and staying happy and healthy can be a challenge. Florine Mark, the owner of our sponsor WW, joined host Tati Amare to talk about how to stay healthy during the lockdown. Here is her advice:

1) Make sure you are eating your fruits and veggies!

An easy way to make sure you and your family eat the right things is not to buy the wrong things to begin with. Florine recommends only buying healthy food you want you and your family to eat because it is a lot easier than having the temptation in your home just steps away.

2) Build a community

Being in quarantine can be very isolating, so reach out to others who have similar goals to you. WW now does virtual classes all over Michigan so you can get that community feel without leaving your home. Talking to others who are motivated and on the same journey as you can help you achieve your goals.

3) Take a Walk

Getting outside, enjoying the sun, and getting a bit of exercise is good for the body and the soul. Florine likes to track her mileage with a fitness gadget and her goal is 4,000 steps a day.

4) Avoid the snacking

As Florine says, everyone wants snacks and comfort good, but she says nothing tastes as good as healthy feels. When you think about what you are gaining by making healthy choices, it makes giving up the snacks that much easier.
