The link the previous poster provided is a good one. All of the exercises there can be done from a seated position.

I am supposed to be resting my ankle, which is what I am doing. I have absolutely zero intention to do anything that could cause more problems with my ankle. I was wanting suggestions for things I could do while sitting (like for the upper body and/or core) that are simple and would allow me to still move around a little while my ankle heals. (I apologize for not explaining better.)
I actually very rarely injure myself while working out (kinda surprising to me honestly). When it does happen, it is because I was trying to move too quickly or do something I was not quite ready for. Most of my injuries come from random daily events like tripping over things. I am one of those "head in the cloud" people so I could probably prevent most of these problems if I would just pay more attention.

Has your doctor cleared you to exercise? This is vital since you have an injury and any information we give may cause additional harm as we don't know your medical history.

If/once the doctor has given clearance to exercise, a place to start may be the limited mobility center:

Also, do you injure yourself just in regular life or when you exercise? If it's when you exercise, working with a personal trainer for a few sessions once you heal may be beneficial to help ensure you are using proper form for strength training moves. Also, they can help you learn proper warm up and cool down techniques for cardio and strength sessions.

I have a tendency to hurt myself in the stupidest of ways (queen of being accident prone) and was wondering if anyone had tips for staying active when you have an injury. (currently nursing a badly sprained ankle)
