By Virginia Laird

Millions across the nation are now planning and preparing to take full advantage of the great weather spring has in store. Many of the activities to enjoy prove time and again to be healthy for the entire family. If you are looking for some fun which can also benefit your health, you may want to consider a few outdoor activities, including:

  • Jogging is great cardio
  • Improve your health with a camping trip
  • Change your workout with a bike ride

Jogging is Great Cardio

While you may not be interested in training for a marathon, it is wise to know that jogging is great cardio. There is no need to train for long distance running to reap the benefits of jogging. Fitness experts suggest that jogging as little as one mile each day can benefit the heart, improve endurance, and have positive impacts on health. While jogging, you are actively strengthening the cardio system. Health and wellness experts suggest those who jog have lower stress levels. No matter what reason you may have for taking on the challenge of running, there are great health impacts from which to benefit while running.

Improve Your Health with a Camping Trip

It may sound slightly wild, but camping can improve your health. Research suggests that spending time getting lost in nature can help lower stress levels. Another benefit of camping is the exercise which comes with hiking, biking, and canoeing which may be done while on the excursion. These are not the only benefits. Camping is also known to improve sleep. With these benefits waiting to be had, it may be time to take the entire family for a weekend of camping fun.

Change Your Workout with a Bike Ride

While working out confined to the four walls of a gym can become monotonou, there are plenty of options for taking the workout outdoors which can prove to breathe life back into your exercise. Biking is one of the best to try. One of the many perks of hopping on a bike is that it can be for everyone in your family. Even those too young to pedal can enjoy a bike ride and reap some of the benefits. Research suggests that spending time outside can provide a boost to the immune system as well as a dose of Vitamin D. Biking is also a great cardio and can help tone up the legs.

Now is the time to begin planning your outdoor adventures and exercise. Good luck and may you love your time in the great outdoors!
