Being unable to go to the gym is no excuse to skip workouts. You can build size, strength, and mass at home. Training with minimal equipment, or even just bodyweight, is enough to get you in shape. Jumping jacks, pushups, leg lifts, crunches, squats, jogging in place, and dancing are some of the exercises you can do at home.

2. Play games

Exercise those problem-solving and cognitive muscles with a good board game. Board games are great for keeping kids busy. If board games are not your thing, you can play video games on a console or smartphone.

3. Gardening

They say a garden is never complete. It just evolves from season to season. Gardeners are always tinkering and replacing plants with each passing season. Gardening is a great way to get up close and personal with nature. Plus, tending your garden counts as exercise. You can even save money on groceries with a vegetable garden.

4. Teach

Share your passion and expertise with others by teaching. Teach your kids the things you loved to do when you were their age. You can get your children to help around the house by teaching them to do laundry or cook.
