A lot of us are limited to indoor activities during many months of the year. With the weather more tolerable now, here are some great ways to stretch your legs and get out to enjoy the great outdoors.
Play some ball. Do you have kids or grandchildren? Play some ball, whether it’s soccer, baseball, or maybe even an old-fashioned game of kickball. It’s a great way to not only get some exercise, but also a chance to bond with the kids.
Bike around. If you really want to stretch your legs, go for a bike ride. Go to the local park or bike around your home. Challenge yourself with hills. You’ll be surprised how quickly it will become a workout!
Gardening. With the warmer temperatures and the sun shining a little brighter, this is a great time to plant flowers. Research which flowers are best for your climate and create a garden. Vegetables are fantastic to plant too! Gardening is therapeutic and allows you to stop and smell the roses.
Outdoor yoga. Have you considered outdoor yoga? Whether it’s through an organized group or on your own, try a short session at sunrise to start your day relaxed and awakened. Or practice at sunset; it’s a peaceful way to close out the day.
Explore your town. Everyone likes to travel, but have you explored your own town? Look for events to attend. Shop at local stores. Try local restaurants. And if possible, park in one spot, combine activities, and enjoy a stroll around town.
