Staying healthy and fit should be both fun and something you look forward to. After all, you’re doing it for you!
Go for a walk/run. There’s no denying that walking is one of the easiest ways to exercise. Did you know that walking for just 30 minutes a day can increase your cardiovascular fitness, reduce excess body fat, and strengthen your bones—not to mention improve your mood? With warmer weather on the way, it’s time to lace up and revisit your favorite path. If the weather is still a little too chilly, try walking in a mall instead. It’s a great way to get your steps in. Plus, you can catch up on your window shopping!
Take a fitness class. A virtual or in-person fitness class can be the ultimate motivator and a great way to keep your social side active, too. To make it even more motivating, ask a friend to sign up with you!
Join a gym. Indoor gyms are a great way to get out of the house and experience a well-rounded workout. If you’ve been toying with the idea of joining a gym, now is a great time to ask for a trial membership. Choose a gym that’s conveniently close to your home or office, as you’ll be more likely to go if the cool weather is conspiring to keep you on the couch.
Play your favorite sports. Nicer weather is nature’s invitation for you to get your outdoor game on! Call your friends and gather a team together for a fun game of basketball, tennis, golf, or pickle ball. Or, if you prefer to go solo, swimming is a great workout and a wonderful way to cleanse your mind and soul. Don’t forget to check your local community centers. They may offer some of your favorite indoor activities in case spring hasn’t just yet “sprung” where you live.
