We are still getting used to our new routines since the pandemic forced us all in our homes for extended periods of time. Although businesses are slowly opening back up, many of us should still be cautious so now is the time to leverage the Internet for our physical, mental, and social needs. 

Just because you are at home more does not mean you can’t live a life full of vitality. Here are some ideas to keep you engaged, active and having fun! 

1. LACMA offers a broad range of ways to enjoy art. People can visit www.lacma.org and watch short films, exhibition walkthroughs and listen to curated audio soundtracks and compositions. 

2. Visit Inter Valley Health Plan’s blog at blogs.ivhp.com for helpful articles on everything from staying on top of the latest scams since COVID-19, to ways to stay safe at the grocery store and tips on Medicare Open Enrollment. 

3. There are many exercise programs that are now virtual such as CorePower Yoga, offering free streaming live classes each day. And YMCA’s new free online community program, YMCA 360, offering on-demand programs and digital coaching.
