Enjoy the Outdoors With These Healthy Activities

By Virginia Laird

Spring is the best time of the year to get outdoors and spend some serious time being active. The weather brings warm days and cool nights, which is drastically different than the brutal heat of summer from which there is no escape. With only a few months remaining of this great weather pattern, you and your family may be looking for activities to enjoy while taking in the beauty of spring. Health and wellness experts have put together a list of fun-filled activities for people of all ages to enjoy. A few of the things recommended include:

  • Plan a hike
  • Take a trip around the golf course
  • Give a bike ride a try

Plan a Hike

Hiking is a great choice when looking for fun and exercise. While hiking, your crew can enjoy the beauty of the blooming nature while getting a few healthy benefits. Weight management is one of the many benefits of hitting the trail. Most who set out on a hiking path walk at least two miles. This kind of cardio not only helps keep tabs on the waist, but also helps strengthen the heart. Hiking is great exercise for all who participate.

Take a Trip Around the Golf Course

Although you may have never considered it, golf can improve your health. Playing golf (or even disc golf) offers a great deal of exercise. Many who love the game also report that playing a round of golf helps to decrease stress. Other healthy benefits of hitting the golf course include soaking up some sun which provides the body with Vitamin D and getting some fresh air which can boost the immune system. With these benefits in store, it may be time for you to begin spending routine time at the golf course.

Give a Bike Ride a Try

With spring in full swing, it is time to dust off the bike and go for a ride. Cycling can be one of the healthiest workouts for the body. Although jogging can be great at burning calories, it can put unnecessary stress on the joints. Cycling offers the same cardio exercise as jogging while avoiding the pain and stress. Biking is also an activity which the entire family can enjoy together. When you ride with your children, you may prefer the safety and security of riding on a trail rather than the open road. Many communities have these trails sprinkled throughout them. Now, before the harsh heat of summer arrives, is the best time to take advantage of the beautiful outdoor weather. Grab your bike and hit the trail.

There is no better time to plan an outdoor adventure. Good luck and may your journey be filled with fun!
