How do you stay active when you can’t walk?
A Thanksgiving kitchen accident involving a pot of boiling water put my 15-year-old daughter in a walking boot to protect her scalded foot for a month. Her injury healed well, but in the process we needed to find ways for her to stay active.
I shared some of my favorite seated exercise videos with her PE teacher and realized, maybe you would find them handy too. Not only are the tips great for when you are injured, they are also sneaky ways to fit in activity while seated at work!
The key is to use these videos as guides and adjust the movements to fit your current abilities. They are also useful for people who may be less steady on their feet or need modified activities due to age or illness. Hopefully, you won’t be injured, but in the event you, or someone you know needs some help maintaining active healthy habits, check these out:
