By Genevieve Cunningham
With the tease of spring in the air, many people are beginning to think about getting outside. The sun, the breeze, the fresh air … most people can’t wait! But along with spending time outdoors, the spring is also a great time to get moving and meet those fitness goals. But besides regular old exercise, how can you get your body moving? It’s probably easier than you think! If you’re anxious to get a jump start on your health, take a look at these easy ways to get moving this spring.
Walking is such a great way to get your body moving in the spring. It's easy on the body and a great transition to harder exercise. Because the weather is so nice, it's easy to get outside and find a trail. Check out your local park, find a hiking trail, take a stroll around the block, or find somewhere in nature to walk and breathe some fresh air. This is a super simple yet effective way to get your body moving and improve your health.
Gardening is a great spring activity. It's great at any time of year, but there's something about spring that makes it especially nice. It's the perfect time to get your hands in the dirt and grow a little bit of life. Gardening requires you to walk, bend, squat, lunge, and do various other kinds of physical activity. And while you're getting in some good exercise, you'll also be growing some healthy food for your cabinets and learning a skill that can last a lifetime.
Because of the weather, spring is a great time to take some day trips. Check out a museum, a local state park, an arboretum, the zoo. All of these will require movement, and you'll be learning and having fun all at the same time. Do some research about your area, and make a plan to get active.
Spring is a great time to get up and get moving. There are a ton of things to do, and the weather makes activity easier than ever. It just feels good to be active in spring, so take advantage of it! Use these ideas to get you started, and you’ll be on your way to better health before you know it.
