Fall is in the air and it’s time to take advantage of the dropping temperatures. Before long, winter will be her again and we won’t want to spend too much time outdoors. For now, though, let’s take some of our daily exercise outside and enjoy the fresh air.
While summertime presented us with a lot of heat-related issues when it came to our fitness routines, Fall starts to open up some activities that we may not have been able do for the previous few months. Here are some suggestions for you to take advantage of outdoor time before it’s time to head back in again.
Hiking – No matter where you live, the ability to go deep into nature to explore your surroundings away from the daily grind is a healthy and cathartic activity. Depending on your fitness level, you can find all sorts of trails online if you search for National Parks in your area.
Disc Golf – Doesn’t matter your fitness level, as there are courses all around, just visit a local park! Disc golf is a great way to get some exercise, enjoy the outdoors, is much more friendly to the budget than traditional golf.
Walk – Taking a walk, even if it’s just around your neighborhood, gets your circulation going and can help cut down on stress from the day.
Touch Football. A typical Thanksgiving weekend meme of sorts, playing touch football with family and friends can be a really fun way to get some exercise in and have your whole family get involved.
Pumpkin Patch and Corn Maze. Get the family or friends together and you’d be surprised how fun a corn maze can be and you’ll get yourself into the holiday spirit.
No matter where your interests lie, getting out and exercising in the fresh air can do wonders for your overall health and well being. Enjoy!
