10 Outdoor Activities You Should Try This Spring

Spring is the perfect time to commit to heart health activities. As the weather improves, the outdoors can become your personal gym. Take the opportunity to enjoy the following activities while supporting your health.

1. START A SPORT

Everything from a basic horseshoe toss to swinging a golf club can count as helpful exercise.

2. SWIMMING

Swimming is a  total body, non impact activity that is beneficial to your entire body.

3. PLAY WITH YOUR KIDS

The best exercise happens when you are having fun. Take a moment to shoot hoops with your children, play tag or visit a park.

4. GARDENING

Between pulling weeds, kneeling to take care of budding flowers, hauling any winter waste and mowing your lawn; gardening is a classic sprintime workout.

5. BICYCLING

Setting up and afternoon of biking can be easy. Remember to choose a route that matches your skill level.

6. DANCING

Dancing your way to health makes for a rhythmic and aerobic exercise routine. All you need is good footwear, some space and music that motivates you.

7. HIKING

Benefits such as picturesque scenery and fresh outdoors outweigh the hassel of planning. Choose a safe route that is appropiate to your fitness level and pack essentials.

8. SPRING CLEANING

All the organizing, lifting and sweeping can work up quite a sweat.

9. SHOPPING

Any diligent shopper knows that a decent shopping trip combines walking with weight training. Dress appropiately.

10. BAKING COOKIES

When all else fails and you dont feel like traveling a great distance, whip up a batch of something sweet and hand deliver them to your neighbouring friends. Walking door to door can give you quite a workout.
