When people are stuck indoors, it doesn’t take long to go stir crazy.

Sitting on the couch watching movies is only enjoyable for so long. At some point, people should get moving — to benefit their mental health as much as physical health.

But where to begin? Here are a few categories of movement to include in an at-home workout.

What types of exercise should you do every day?

The American Heart Association recommends 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic activity, or 75 minutes of high-intensity aerobic activity weekly. That breaks down to at least 21 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity per day. Try to do 30 minutes of exercise per day, five days per week at moderate pace; three days per week at vigorous pace; or a combination of each, three to five days per week.
