Spring has Sprung, So Get Out There!

Springtime has arrived and summer is right around the corner! 

The warmer weather gives us more opportunities to practice healthy habits. Getting outside is also good for the soul. You only need 30 minutes of regular exercise each day to reach and maintain a healthy body. Try one or more of the following activities to get you and your family moving as we kick off the summer:

Plant a garden. Gardening is a fun activity for the entire family. It’s also a great source for fresh healthy snacks! Peas, spinach, beets, broccoli, can be planted in April before the cold nights end. Wait until after Mother’s Day to plant more fragile vegetables like tomatoes, squash, peppers, cucumbers, etc. They’re easy and the perfect addition to your Lean and Green meals!

Enjoy a picnic in the park. Break out the bubbles, kites, and wiffle ball set and head to the park! 

Make it easy, fill your picnic basket with fruits, veggies, cheese, lean lunch meat and crackers to make a healthy a meal. Kids love to create their own.

Spring cleaning. Take a day for spring cleaning. Turn up the music and get into the groove!

Enjoy a nature walk. Nature walks are perfect for getting exercise, learning about the great outdoors, and enjoying the spring weather. It’s great for everyone to get out of the house and spend some time taking in the fresh air.

Take up a hobby. Having a summer hobby that takes you outside like golf, pickle ball, tennis, running, hiking etc., is a great way to in cooperate healthy habits and spending time together with new friends or your family.

I hope you feel inspired by these healthy ideas. Don’t forget to wear sunscreen, eye protection, and stay hydrated while out in the sun. 

Let’s make this summer one of the healthiest ever! (Ellis is a certified Independent Optavia Health Coach.)
