Shake Up Your Workout With Outdoor Activities

By Virginia Laird

There are times when exercising indoors can be a drag. Professional trainers suggest that when this happens, it may be time to change your surroundings. Taking your exercise outdoors can prove to be exciting and invigorating. There are many benefits in moving your workout to the beauty of nature. One of the best, according to research, is that spending time outside can improve mental health. There are a wide variety of activities to consider when taking your workout outside, including:

  • Golf is good cardio
  • Jogging can benefit your health
  • Camping can improve your health

Golf is Good Cardio

Although many believe golf is an excuse to get away from the house for hours on end, there is actually evidence which proves it can be great cardio. While many invest in the cart to get around the course, you can choose to walk. Research suggests that walking the course can allow you to get in at least two miles of exercise (depending on the number of holes you choose to play). If you simply cannot tackle this feat, no worries, you are still getting exercise. Walking from the cart path to wherever you hit your ball throughout your game still provides a great way to get some cardio.

Jogging Can Benefit Your Health

There is research which suggests that jogging can benefit your overall health and wellness. Before you cringe at the thought of running miles, take a deep breath. This same research advises that as little as one mile each day can help make improvements on health. If you do not enjoy jogging, start by walking this distance. Health and wellness professionals suggest that walking can be just as beneficial as jogging.

Camping Can Improve Your Health

Have you ever considered a camping trip to improve your health? It is certainly something you should do. Camping can offer a wide variety of health benefits. Research suggests that spending time in nature can reduce stress, boost the immune system, and provide a dose of Vitamin D. While camping, many are involved in hiking and biking, which is great cardio for burning calories. Camping has also been known to improve the ability to get a good night of rest. If you are ready to begin having some of these benefits in your life, it may be wise to plan a camping trip.

Delay no longer. With spring in full swing, now is the time to decide how best to take your exercise outside while soaking up the many healthy benefits of being in nature.
