Sports are fun, and most importantly, are healthy to keep up with. Donating your time to a hobby has never been more productive for your growth and well-being. Doing sport at home may not mean you’re at an Olympic level, but that doesn’t mean some Olympic crafts can’t be incorporated into your home life. Here’s a few ideas on setting up a healthier regime, and getting you more interested in the sporty side of life.
Use Your Games Consoles
Wee, sports! The Wii was a revolutionary invention in terms of getting some exercise in at home that was actually in the form of sports. Tennis and boxing were both fun to compete with your family in, and then yell about when it went wrong.
We all have some kind of video game console in our house, so put it to good use. For the more modern day, use things like the Xbox Kinect and maybe even some VR technology to keep in shape with virtual sports. This makes a whole lot more fun whilst still managing to include healthy habits in your home life.
Having some dance competitions using sensor recognition, so you can’t cheat by just flailing the remote around anymore. Winning a game used to be so easy!
Try Some Golf
First of all, make sure you have the room to practice a swing, and then go wild with it. Figuratively of course, as this is the main place people let themselves down when it comes to a golfing skill.
If you really miss hitting the golf course however, you can get your own driveway at home with the best indoor putting greens. Bring all the enjoyment of hitting a ball into sand dune or river home with you, only without any of the fuss.
There’s some pretty nifty health benefits to playing some golf, even when it’s just a short course in your garage or living room. It can reduce stress, and even improve your arm strength when done in the long term. There’s not much you can to do to injure yourself either, apart from a little muscle strain if you tense and swing. Keep it loose and light, just like your new exercise regime.
Try Some Table Football
It may seem a little gimmicky, but think of this as getting into sports but still being at the gateway. There’s a lot of fun to be had over a good game of table football, and also lots of competitive cheer. 8 a side in immovable rows? It can be quite hard to get to grips with.
However, it isn’t just all fun. Your coordination and reaction times can improve after one too many games, which are rather good skills to have in the modern world. You can even have a little more of an involved social life if you incorporate parties into the model as well.
So try some of these if you’re trying to ease yourself into it, and make your home life a little more fun.
