Getting any type of exercise is good for your body, but did you know there are specific benefits to taking your workout outside?
Not only is it a great way to boost your activity, but it will also help boost your mood.
Exercising outdoors has been linked to improved heart health, immunity, recovery time, and overall well-being. It also helps to reduce negative moods, tension, anger, and depression.
When you exercise outside, you’re often engaging with other people which has been shown to increase enjoyment of the activity and how often you participate, since you also have social motivation.
To help get you going, here are a few green activities you can try:
- Garden and plant trees
- Go hiking
- Canoe or kayak
- Explore natural parks
- Go for a bike ride
- Play tennis
Whatever activity you choose, don’t forget to keep it green. For more information on what exercises are right for you, you can ask a chiropractor.
