When the weather gets cooler, we all tend to stay inside more often. During the winter months, it is still important to stay active for the mind and body! Here is a list of indoor games and activities that are equally good for everyone’s health and wellness.
Ping Pong or table tennis is a great indoor game that is enjoyed by both adults and children. It can be played with a partner or as singles, and helps improve hand-eye coordination. Players stay alert and sharp, challenging the mind to strategize against the opposing team. Moreover, it is easy on the joints! This game is ideal for one and all!
Foosball is also a lot of fun. It is a perfect indoor game that can bond friends and family. This game also encourages hand eye coordination while playing. It is simple to learn and does not require vigorous activity to enjoy…or win!
Table Shuffleboard, this indoor game is extremely exciting. As you slide the weights down the table to score points you perform movements that help to tone your arms and improve coordination. Even the small movements get your blood flowing.
