With this new weather shining and tempting you to leave the office and go outdoors, I am more encouraged to get active outside. Getting outdoors and working out is so healthy for you, not only are you getting fit but you’re also getting some time with nature. We are unquestionably nature deprived today and spend most of our time indoors bent over a computer screen. The only sign of outdoors is that fake plant collecting dust in the corner. Nope, that doesn’t count as nature.
Combine your workout time and outdoor time and get combined happy results! Humans need time to breathe in the fresh air, smell the flowers, and feel the sunshine on their face. And whatever other cliches you can come up with.
I enjoyed a bike ride this past weekend. I had forgotten how amazing riding a bike is and will admit I was a little shaky on it for the first couple minutes. Where had my professional bike riding skills as a kid disappeared to? I mean, I was a pro. But after a few minutes I felt like a child again whooshing by pedestrians, shops, and trees. Look how fast I’m going!!! Definitely would recommend you to get outdoors and ride a bike, brings some glee!
Never underestimate how healthy a brisk walk is for your body. Walking is great because it is good for you and isn’t harmful to your joints like running can be if your not taking the proper precautions. Take your loyal pup out for a walk, or if you don’t have one ask a neighbor! Trust me, most dog owners would love their dog to get exercise when they aren’t available.
Hike. I am desperately jealous of those people who don’t live in the vertically challenged plains. If I lived in Colorado, I would be ridiculously fit… or so I tell myself. But I would be out hiking every day! However this hiking destination, Robbers Cave State Park, wasn’t too bad. Way to go Oklahoma 🙂
