Summer is fast approaching. It’s a great time to get out of the house to get some sunshine and fresh air. Whether it’s to encourage exercise or outdoor play, there are many benefits to be enjoyed when you go outside. Thankfully, Alsons Properties communities offer plenty of spaces for just that. With parks, playgrounds, and open spaces in each community, there is more than ample space for you to get moving.
Here are some of the wonderful outdoor activities that make exercise fun for both individual enjoyment or family bonding.
Biking has become a popular hobby and alternative mode of transportation for many, and for a good reason! Apart from encouraging cardiovascular strength, it is also proven to improve stamina as you bike longer distances. Aside from its many benefits to the body, it is also a fun and exciting way to put in extra exercise as you enjoy the outdoor breeze and beautiful sights.
If you prefer to stay within your yard, frisbee is a great physical activity that gets your body going without it feeling like a mundane exercise. There aren’t any definite rules either, so you get to enjoy free play while improving agility, endurance, and providing you with an overall whole body workout. Because of the relaxed nature of the game, you can simply let loose and have a good time, whether you’re playing with a friend or your pet!
Want to brush up on your coordination? Or are looking for an activity that includes 2-4 people? Badminton is the perfect game for siblings and parents to bond and have fun while working out the entire body. It’s an engaging way to get the heart pumping and the arms and legs active while having a lighthearted laugh with your loved ones.
Far from being just a childhood pastime, jumping rope has evolved into the cardio exercise of choice for many gym rats because of its considerable benefits. Aside from improving cardiovascular fitness and body coordination, it also encourages strong bones and lowers injury risk when you proceed to other exercises. Just put on your favorite music and start skipping.
Another pastime from childhood that physicians are now commending as a playful form of exercise is flying kites. With the constant sprinting required to set that kite flying, and the exposure to plenty of fresh outdoor air, it brings the heart a lot of good. In addition to all that, it’s a wonderful way to encourage children to spend more time playing outdoors.
Remember, a healthy body means a happier mind. With these great outdoor exercises, you’re sure to have fun achieving both, especially when living in one of our many communities that provide you with the perfect avenue to do so.
