Hit a Home Run for Better Health

By Tom Herrin

Are you tired of trying to force yourself into a routine of exercise with the same old things all the time?  If you are, you are definitely not alone.  Even though most of us know only too well that we all need regular exercise, many of us don't do anything about it.  We should really look for good alternatives, but it becomes too easy to simply become sedentary.  If this is the case, we aren't doing ourselves much good.  There are plenty of activities that may be considered less traditional that can be a great help in improving and maintaining good health.  All we need to do is open our minds a bit more.

Improve Your Hitting

You may not have even given any thought to getting in a batting cage, but it can be fun and challenging.  As with so many other things, it can be a good opportunity to set some goals.  If you have ever played baseball or softball, you may find it to be a good break.  It won't replace spending time out running long distances, but it will get you moving and provide some good mild-to-moderate exercise.  At least it may be a good change from the boredom of repetitious exercises that are so common.

Ride a Bicycle

When it comes to activities that are lower impact, riding a bicycle is a good one.  It can be a great way to work the knees and build endurance as well as some strength.  Bicycles are pretty affordable, and you can ride them almost anywhere.  I enjoy riding my bike a lot.  It gives me a feeling of freedom, and it always seems to improve my blood pressure.  After I ride, I usually sleep better.  While some enjoy riding alone, many prefer riding in groups.  There are all kinds of organized rides for those who enjoy a little competition.

Go for a Swim

Some people think of swimming as a summer activity.  It is that and much more.  Many people who are recovering from injuries, surgery, or other problems swim regularly as part of their rehabilitation program.  The water supports weight while we use our muscles to propel us.  Many are able to swim well into older years.  Weather is not a factor as there are lots of indoor pools all around.  Chances are there is one available to you.
