5 Tips on Staying Healthy During Quarantine from Nick Bernatowicz Wealth Preservation’s friend and trust advisor partner from Producers Choice Network!

Keep a Regular Routine
It’s easy to sleep in and binge watch your favorite Netflix show, but maintaining a normal routine will allow you to control the day. Schedule a workout every day and treat that as a non-negotiable.

Do a Physical Activity Everyday
Your scheduled workout does not have to be perfect. Far too often we set unrealistic expectations of I must have 1-2hrs of workout time a day or it’s not good enough. Any amount of activity is good activity. 5-10 minutes counts toward your overall fitness journey. Get up and move everyday!

Get Your Family Involved in Your Workouts
Call it PE for your kids or couple’s happy hour for you and your partner, having workout partners makes it fun and keeps you accountable. Keep them involved and see how much more consistent you become.

Drink Water Constantly
The minimum recommended water consumption is ½ your bodyweight in ounces. I weigh 200lbs., that means at a minimum I should be drinking 100oz of water a day. Use a larger water bottle like Hydroflask or KleanKanteen, and start your day by filling it up, and depending on the size, drinking 2-3 of those throughout the day.

Food and Booze Moderation
Monday through Thursday should be your “clean days”- no cheat meals and no drinking. After a day of home schooling the kids, that bottle of wine tends to get opened on a regular occurrence. Try to limit yourself to just 1 or 2 nights at most, drinking. On your non-cheat days, focus on non-sugary beverages and non-processed meals. Eat meat and veggies, nuts and seeds, some fruit and no starch. Follow that and you’ll be set!
