What Senior Members of the Church Can Do to Stay Fit and Healthy Amidst COVID-19
Are you looking for some ways to safely combine faith and fitness during the pandemic? These tips from Hartford United Methodist Church will tell you everything you need to know!
If you’re looking for a meaningful way to stay fit and healthy during the pandemic, one option is to provide free yard care services to other senior (or disabled) members of your church. You could shovel snow in the winter, rake leaves in the fall and spring, and mow lawns in the summer. CareCalendar is a great way to organize care services in your community, but remember to wear a face mask and practice social distancing if other church members will be joining you.
Exercising at home doesn’t necessarily relate to church, but it’s one way to stay fit and healthy amidst COVID-19. You can find online workouts and yoga classes, or you could join the free SilverSneakers fitness program if you’re covered under a participating Medigap or Medicare Advantage Plan. SilverSneakers fitness memberships aren’t covered under all Medicare plans, however, so you’ll need to check your eligibility to determine whether you can benefit from this free program.
Whether you’re attending virtual, in-person, or curbside church services during the pandemic, it’s possible to combine faith and fitness while keeping yourself (and others) safe from the coronavirus. Here are a few ways to do it:
Combining faith and fitness is easier than you’d think, even in the midst of a pandemic. These tips will help you to stay healthy, fit, spiritual, and social — all without putting you or other senior members of your church at risk.
