3 Healthy Reasons to Start Golfing

By Virginia Laird

Imagine this: You are surrounded by acres of beautifully manicured lawns. The only sound you hear is nature’s music and the sound of your club slapping the ball as you send it yards down the fairway. This is a dream for many who love to golf. If you have yet to find this passion, it may be time to give golfing a try. Health and wellness experts suggest that golfing is healthy. If you are looking for a slow-paced activity which can challenge the mind while providing some exercise, consider heading over to the golf course. A few reasons to give golf a try include:

  • Golfers get plenty exercise
  • Golfing can be great for mental health
  • Golf is a low-stress activity

Golfers Get Plenty of Exercise

Although golfing may not require any running, there is plenty of exercise to be had while on the golf course. For beginners, many choose to walk the course rather than renting a cart. Those who choose the cart are not exempt from walking. Those who prefer the cart life must keep their cart on the path. This allows for some walking intermittently as you stroll to find your ball on the fairway and the green. Either way, you are sure to get a little cardio.

Golfing Can Be Great for Mental Health

Research suggests that golfing is great for mental health. The peace which can be found while on the course can help clear the mind. When the pace of life is much too fast for you to digest, it can be nice to get away to the course and take in the beauty of nature while enjoying the challenge of the game. Health and wellness professionals advise that taking time to slow down when life gets crazy and demanding can provide a boost for mental health.

Golf is a Low-Stress Activity

While looking for an activity to keep you active while not putting your body through a ton of stress, it can be difficult to identify. Golf can provide just that. This is a low-stress activity. Because it requires no physical contact, no jogging, no weight lifting, it can be low impact. Although it may be low-impact, it can still be the culprit of stiffness throughout the arms, back, and legs. Make sure you stretch thoroughly prior to setting out on the course, as well as stretch as you go. This can help defeat these discomforts.

Now find your local golf course and head out ready to enjoy the beautiful spring weather and all the health benefits this game has to offer.
