Days seem much longer when the quarantine days are simply extending. The monotony followed by stress, overeating and oversleeping affects stability at all levels. Just a little sweat with physical exertion can be a great mood booster though. Not just for adults but for kids as well. If your little ones are acting out a little, take some tips on how to be active without stepping out. Also, you don’t have to bore them with conventional exercises.

How to be Active Indoors During Quarantine: What Kids Really Enjoy

Coping with the lockdown situation does not have to be hard. Here are some fun ways on how you and your family can stay physically active:

1.    Off-the-couch Video Games

Who says no to video games! We are not talking about the video games where you sit on the couch day in and out. Check out for non-stationary video games.

You may go for Dance Central Spotlight for Xbox One. You can get on the groove instantly. For hours, you can keep perfecting your moves without realising how much calories you torched. Track it by wearing an advanced wearable that gives you the step count and monitor your heart 24/7.

If you own a PlayStation 3, go for Sports Champion. You will work all the hand muscles with PlayStation®Move motion controller, as this game is an active exercise.

If you are getting down to work and want your loved ones to have a fun time with these games, get the wireless headphones. Our PLAYGO N23 in-ear headphones come with sweat-proof neckbands. As they are equipped with the latest Bluetooth v5.0, there will be no lag in the audio. 

For your kids, these video games are surely one of the best ways on how to be active at all times. And for you, too!

2.    Stay Old-School

You must remember how fun it is to play charades. This is a classic with no use of words and lots of hand movements followed by laughter. Indeed, this is a great stress buster and activates the mind to a large degree.

Want to step it up a little?

Try an indoor obstacle course. Pile up those ottomans, pillows and blankets in your living room. Let your little ones crawl through the tunnels you made from blankets. Let them perform jumping jacks to warm up and win the race.

Who can also forget hide-and-seek! This classic game is known for assisting in coordination, balancing and gaining agility among toddlers. The best part about it is that it is exciting for all ages at all times.

Another great indoor game for improving your toddler’s motor skills is balancing beams. All you need is duct tape and an empty floor. Put different colours on the tape and stick on the floor. Each colour indicates a different rule of walking.

Let’s say you have a blue colour on one side. For that colour, only one leg has to be used. If your little one steps out of the blue boundary, s/he will be out. You can keep it interesting every time by changing the rules. For your child, this game is one of the best ways to stay fit at home.

Know How to be Active Indoors and Stay Healthy

See, it is that easy to stay physically active at home for you and for your little ones. So, go ahead, start planning the next game. Just don’t let the lockdown get to you or them.
