The flowers are blooming, folks. There are no more excuses not to get outside, get active and get healthy! Use this break in the weather as a way to “Spring Clean” up your health. Here are some wellness ideas to get your body and health up and moving along.
Start on your garden. Getting your hands dirty three times a week for an hour not only spruces up your yard and ups your happiness level, but it also burns approximately 250 to 350 calories an hour.
Don’t have a garden? Head out in the yard! Mow the lawn, haul mulch, pull weeds, or rearrange yard décor. This is all great exercise! Make sure to get up often and change things up, every 20 minutes or so, to make sure you aren’t overstraining certain muscle groups.
Burn that energy and get great rest!
Go to bed early. People who wake up earlier will have a leg up on the late night fans who sleep away the morning. Taking advantage of being out in the fresh air and sunlight during the day will pump you full of needed vitamin D, and combined with a great night of sleep, can fight away symptoms of depression and fatigue.
Take advantage of the abundance of local fresh fruits and veggies.
Have you been passing by a farmer’s market with curiosity? Do yourself a favor and get your hands on some farm fresh goodies the easiest and most convenient way possible. CSA – or Community Supported Agriculture – is at the heart of the Think Global, Eat Local movement.
Public shares of from a CSA often offer:
