Spring has Sprung!

3 non-exercise ways to increase your activity this Spring

It finally feels like spring is tapping us on the shoulder and I for one am very much looking forward to what feels like our first proper summer in years!


After work ocean dips, beach hangs with friends, not forgetting packing away the winter layers and digging out the denim shorts and bikinis. Yes, that can fill some with dread, but it doesn’t have to.



#1 - Switch off the TV and go for a walk


Make the most of the lighter mornings or evenings by going for a walk instead of getting stuck into a new Netflix series. To make it a habit, tag it onto an already existing habit. For example, once you've finished your dinner, go for a 15-20 minute walk. Not only will this help you digest your food, the extra steps will go a long way to increasing you average step count over the week.



#2 - Head to the beach


Yes, the water can be a bit of a chilly until later in the year, but I can assure you that nothing feels better than a dip in the ocean on a warm spring evening. Even if it's just a paddle in the white wash, the benefits of vitamin sea have long been reported. Salt water is rich in magnesium which helps release stress, relax your nervous system and promote deep sleep.



#3 - Get Outside


Take the dog or the kids to the park. Again, making the most of the lighter evenings, a park is a great place to get some incidental activity in. Personally, I love nothing more than taking my dog, Thelma, to the park in the evening. Come Spring and Summer it becomes a ritual at the end of the day. We both get a good run around, me throwing the ball, her chasing after it and then me chasing after her as she isn't a fan of bringing it back 🙄



In the words of a well known sports brand: Just Do It


However you choose to get active, make sure it's something you enjoy and something you can incorporate into your busy life. Spring is the best time to stop making excuses, get outside and get active. If you still need a little more help keeping active get in touch.
