Home Gyms & The Case for Self-Care in the New Normal

Categories: Work from Home | Posted: September 30, 2020

Spending more time at home means finding creative ways to adapt your hobbies and fitness activities to your home environment. Fitness is a powerful stress reducer and a great way to make use of the extra time that you might have previously spent going from place to place or managing your life outside of the house. Whether you’re new to exercise or a fitness regular, there has never been a better time to create a workout routine that boosts your health, your mood, and your energy. It all starts with setting up a dedicated workout space inside your home to set yourself up for success and make exercise feel like a desirable, integrated part of your day. 

Whether you are using a flex space where you roll out a yoga mat or carry in hand-weights, or setting up heavy machinery, go the extra mile to make your workout space fit for purpose. Bring in speakers, add a plant, set up a fan and television screen – and make sure you have room to stretch out and enjoy your workout with privacy.

An H&H Floorplan like the Wrightsville comes with spacious rooms that are adaptable because of their generous size. The Wrightsville makes it easy to carve out a portion of the master bedroom or open plan living room to act as a workout sanctuary – especially if you enjoy overlooking your outdoor area. Converting part of a garage is also a popular option for home fitness fans. Many H&H Homes floor plans come with a 2-car garage, giving you plenty of space to convert part of your garage into a fitness sanctuary. 

Why Multi-Generational Living Calls For Flexible Space Configurations

Spending more time at home than ever before makes the idea of living with elderly parents or in-laws more attractive than ever. Multi-generational living is a long-held tradition in many cultures and has increased dramatically across the United States during the coronavirus pandemic. Living with grandparents helps working parents get the support they need with childcare. Plus, many families are enjoying closer proximity to feel closer to their loved ones. Setting up healthy boundaries helps create a comfortable multi-generational household. A bit of space between sleeping areas and spacious common rooms are essential for multi-generational families who want to easily transition from time together to time alone while living under the same roof. 

If you are considering living with extended family members, H&H Homes’ adaptable floorplans can set you up with the ideal amount of space and the best room configuration for your family. The Calabash, for example, can flex between 2-4 bedrooms, including an optional additional master bedroom. There are also several multi-use spaces, such as a rec room and an outdoor patio space that can be covered to extend your living area. With a spacious kitchen that connects to a large dining room, the Calabash makes it easy for families to find a central gathering place for snacks or meals. If bringing aging parents or in-laws into your home is not in your near-term plans but is potentially on the horizon for your family in the future, choose a floorplan that affords you the space to expand your lifestyle and adapt how different rooms are used during the days and nights.
