Make A Few Health Improvements for Fall
By Tom Herrin
With the heat of summer past, the more pleasant days of fall can be a great time to reevaluate an overall health plan. The better temperatures can certainly make it a lot easier to get out and do something active. Most people tend to slack off in the summer, largely due to the fact that it may have become almost unbearable to be out and about. The fall becomes a more natural time for them to make a new start. Choosing some things to do differently can pay off well as the season progresses.
Get the Bike Out of Storage
If people are unsure about just what they may be able to do, riding a bicycle can be a good way to start. It is low impact, and people can set their own pace. Riding can be really enjoyable as people get to feel that fresh fall air in their faces. I choose to ride in the evening after I am home for the night, and I love it. I could ride endlessly listening to music. I only come in when I have to.
A Game of Touch Football Can Be Fun
It seems like in the fall, football is everywhere. People can get their own game up and make it fit however they want it to work. It can be really light. I played a lot with friends in the afternoons in college, and we played a very casual game. Even at that, I soon discovered I had improved my overall conditioning quite a bit. I made some adjustments to my diet and ended up losing a significant amount of weight. For those not into football, playing tennis, golf, or volleyball can be good activities that can provide a reasonable amount of exercise.
Try Some New Dishes
There are lots of foods out there you may have never really thought about. You might consider visiting some kind of an outdoor market or fair where foods are displayed. You can see and sample many different foods and dishes. Pick out something and take it home. Find a new recipe and try making it. Get someone to help you and have some fun with it. It could be a great start to a healthier lifestyle, particularly after you add in your extra physical activity.
