Trying to exercise and eat healthy isn’t easy for a lot of us right now, especially if you’re trying to juggle working with kids home from school.

An app called "AND/life" could help.

It’s all about fast workouts you can do at home with your kids and simple recipes you can make together.

The app’s creator, trainer Andrea Marcellus, says it’s more important than ever right now to stay physically healthy and find ways to de-stress, but you don’t need to spend a ton of time working out for it to be effective.

"We definitely want to get our heart rate up every day. We definitely want to be strengthening our muscles, lengthening them and destressing that way, but to overdo it is not helping yourself and actually it’s highly advantageous to have smaller bouts of exercise that you can do consistently, fit into your schedule consistently. And that’s going to be better for you, not just in terms of your schedule and your sanity, but also in terms of your health right now," said Marcellus.

With everyone stuck at home, Marcellus says she decided to make the app available for free for the next 60 days.
