April is National Move More Month, and the objective is simple, get up and move more this month! National move month is aimed to get more of us to hit 10,000 steps every day or get at least 20 minutes of aerobic exercise every day.
Now that the season is changing and we are leaving winter behind us, spring is the perfect time to be active outdoors. Since the weather will be more ideal, you will be able to explore new ways to stay fit and healthy.
With spring you get warmer weather along with the opportunity to get fresh air and sunshine. It might be challenging to change your state of mind of the habit of staying indoors. That’s why you should get moving as soon as possible because the sooner you get active, the better you have of reaching those health goals.
The benefits of movement are endless, and if you’re ready to boost your health during Move More Month, here are some ways to get you started:
Hit the Bicycle Trail
Cycling can help you improve your overall health and wellness while enjoying the great benefits that nature has to offer. Hitting the bike trail can help you reduce stress and improve your heart health. All that PLUS biking gives you the chance to gain strength and endurance through cardio.
Get those Steps In
Walking is excellent for your body and can be easily added to your daily routine. Focus on adding more walking into your routine by parking at the back of the parking lot, taking the stairs, or walking to a destination instead of driving. If you need more motivation, track your steps with your phone or smartwatch to easily record your steps and maintain a set goal.
Find the Perfect Hobby
Hobbies are a great way to maintain the body and mind. Try choosing a hobby that keeps you active. Instead of staying inside on the computer or watching TV, go outside and try something that you like that you can do outdoors while getting your body moving. Outdoor hobbies could include fishing, hiking, gardening, and even yoga.
