Tips For Staying Healthy While COVID Keeps You Indoors

Over and over again we’re hearing that staying home is the best way to keep people safe from COVID-19. While it is true that social distancing and self-quarantine decrease your chances of getting sick from coronavirus, staying home can potentially lead to other health issues… both physical and mental.

Fortunately, there are a number of things you can do to stay healthy while being cooped up.

Get regular sleep

With schools and most businesses closed, it’s tempting to just sleep whenever we feel like it But, research tells us that keeping a regular sleep schedule is vital to good health. A recent study in Scientific Reports found that the more irregular these sleep patterns, the higher the risk for obesity, hypertension, and elevated blood sugar, and even heart disease.

Maintain some degree of normalcy

There’s no way around it…. Staying home 24 hours a day is not a normal way for most of us to live. Keeping some kind of routine can help boost your mental health. Setting regular work and meal hours is a good way to provide some structure.

Go outside

As long as your area allows it and you are keeping a good distance between other people, getting outside for walks or runs will help keep both your body and mind healthy. A study published in the International Journal of Environmental Health Research showed that spending just 20 minutes in a park, even if you don’t exercise while you’re there, is enough to improve well-being.

Exercise indoors

If you can’t go outdoors, there are plenty of indoor things you can do to stay active. Yoga, dancing, and jump roping are all things you can do in even the smallest indoor spaces. If you’re finding trouble staying motivated, check out an exercise video or even set up an online group exercise meetup.

Eat healthy

The temptation to binge on comfort food is very strong right now. And it is OK to allow yourself some indulgences. But, with no clear end in sight to this crisis, it’s important to make overall healthy food choices. Since it’s recommended that we limit our grocery shopping trips, it’s a good time to buy more frozen fruit and vegetables. Smoothies are a great way to give your body the vitamins it needs and still feeling like you’re having a treat.

Stay connected

Isolation can be very difficult on your mental health. Fortunately, there has never been an easier time in history to stay connected remotely. Texting and social media are both good ways to stay in touch…. But don’t discount the power of hearing someone’s voice. Now is the perfect time to start making regular phone calls to your loved ones, especially if they live alone.

Keep your indoor air clean

The EPA has found that indoor air often has a concentration of two to five times more pollutants than outdoor air. Radon, pesticides, dust, smoke, and various volatile organic compounds (VOCs) all present health hazards, especially when we’re spending so much time indoors. Because coronavirus primarily affects the lungs, it is extra important right now to keep the air in your home clean of pollutants. A high-quality air purifier can do just that.

How Tax is calculated

The amount of tax charged on your order depends on many factors including the following:


  • The identity of the seller
  • The type of item or service purchased
  • The time and location of fulfillment


The shipment or delivery address of your order
These factors can change between the time you place an order and when your shipment is complete. As a result, the tax calculated on your order may change. We display an “Estimated Tax” to be collected at Check Out when confirming an order. The amounts displayed as estimated tax may then be updated later when your order is finalized and completed.


The tax rate applied to your order will be the combined state and local rates of the address where your order is delivered to or fulfilled from. For example, if you live in a state that does not impose a sales tax, you may still see tax calculated on your order if shipped to another state. Moreover, the tax rates applied to your order may also be different for a variety of reasons, such as a shipment to a residential home versus a business address. Also, the total selling price of an item will generally include item-level shipping and handling charges, item level discounts, and gift wrapping charges. If applied at an order level, these charges, may be allocated to the individual items in an order.


If you are ordering from aeris and shipping to a country outside of the US, you may be charged the applicable country tax rate.
