Fun and Healthy Ways to Get Active in the Spring

Now that we have had a small taste of spring weather, we bet that you are getting excited to fully enjoy the warmer weather, longer days, and bright sunshine of spring. After months of cold, we tend to most excited to get outdoor in the spring. If you are looking for some activities to help acclimate you to the warmer weather, get started with our suggestions below.

Start Fresh with Produce

There’s no better way to prepare your household for a new season than by spring cleaning. Purge your household of unwanted items, deep clean every nook and cranny, and organize your home. (Check out this comprehensive cleaning checklist.)This can reinvigorate you with a fresh new outlook! Remember to take a look outside to see how you can begin prepping your yard for a beautiful summer outdoors.

Try New Recipes with Newly In-Season Produce

Speaking of gardening, now is a good time to reintroduce yourself to fresh fruits and vegetables. Tons of fruits and vegetables are best in spring, including bananas, avocados, asparagus, and radishes. Bring some new vegetables and fruits to your dinner table this season with some new springtime recipes.

Prep your Garden

If you are an avid gardener, you may have already started laying the groundwork for your garden, but if you haven’t yet started, now may be the perfect time to prep your garden. Clear your garden of weeds, old debris, and bad soil, and compile all your tools, seeds, and bulbs.

Explore a New Trail

Whether you walk, hike, or bike, the mild weather of spring is the perfect time to test out a new trail. Make an event of out it and grab some friends to explore a new area. Regular walks, hikes, and biking excursions can be a low-impact way to get back into the swing of things, and it can be an excellent way to warm up those muscles for late spring and summer sports.

Spend your Weekends Outdoors

Resist the urge to start your Saturday morning on the couch. Instead, grab a community calendar to what events are near you. Head to a farmer’s market, take on yoga or a picnic in the park, soak up the sun at a baseball game, or enjoy lunch on an outdoor patio. Make the best out every weekend!

Resolve to Get Outside!

From afternoon walks to flying a kite, make the effort to spend some time outside. Put the effort into organizing a recreational activity with a group of friends or join an adult sports team. Soaking up some vitamin D can rejuvenate your senses and energize you for a new season.

Many of these activities will get your body moving and active on a regular basis, and they are excellent activities to gear yourself up for a warm weather sport or a summer of adrenaline-inducing adventure. Remember that taking the time to be active in your day will keep you healthy, happy, and motivated.  As with any fitness endeavor, make sure to stretch properly to prevent muscle strain, drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, keep a nutritious diet in order to stay healthy and strong, and take plenty of time to rest.
