Creating a healthy environment while working from home can be difficult—especially if you’re used to working in an office, having drinks out with friends and occasionally hitting the gym. But keeping active and staying close to your normal routine during a WFH schedule is just as important as getting dressed and not working from your bed. Finding a balance between work, relaxing and exercising is a feat even when you’re not stuck at home, but this home workout equipment might help alleviate some of the stress. If you’re not able to get a gym to do your usual workouts, there are plenty of equipment options online that you can have shipped right to your door. Who knew this would be the time for you to create your own private gym?

From the ever-essential hand weight to portable machines you can use just about anywhere, there’s plenty of at-home exercise equipment out there that will make working (and working out) from home much, much easier. Even if you’re not a big fan of the gym, many of these machines and equipment options can be used in yoga and other, less-machine-heavy exercise forms.

While I would definitely not consider myself a gym rat, it can be helpful to have exercise equipment on-hand as additional motivation. After all, no one feels great while sitting and watching TV, looking over at an exercise machine in the corner. Having useful equipment around can be a great way to get yourself moving when you really aren’t feeling like it. This is especially helpful for those of us who are terrible at self-motivating. However, you choose to exercise at home, though, make sure you focus on both physical and mental health. Both are important.
