The Best Ways To Get Outside And Get Healthy

 When most people think of getting healthy, they think of spending hours in the gym. While this is definitely one way to improve your health, it's not the only way. In fact, there are many ways to get outside and get active that don't involve a trip to the gym.

#1 Go To Your Local Park

Parks are great places to get fresh air and move your body. Most parks have walking trails that you can explore. If you bring a friend, you can even make it a competition to see who can reach the trail's end first.

Parks are also a great place to play sports. If you're feeling competitive, challenge a friend to a game of basketball or tennis. Or, if you want to relax, parks are also great places to read a book or take a nap in the sun. No matter what you choose to do, spending time in your local park is a great way to get outside and get healthy.

#2 Go For A Hike

One of the best ways to get outside and get some exercise is by going for a hike. Hiking is a great way to get your heart rate up and enjoy the beautiful scenery. It's also a great way to bond with friends or family members. So hiking is definitely the way to go if you're looking for a fun and challenging workout.

Just make sure you dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. Also, be sure to bring plenty of water and snacks, especially if you're taking a long hike. Some snacks that are especially good for hiking are nuts, granola bars, and anything from your delta 8 cart. This will help you stay energized and focused on the hike ahead.

#3 Join A Local Sports Team

A great way to get outside and get healthy is by joining a local sports team. This is a great way to meet new people and stay active. You can join many different types of sports teams, so there is sure to be one that fits your interests.

Joining a sports team is also a great way to get motivated to stay in shape. When you have teammates counting on you, motivating yourself to work hard during practices and games can be easier.

#4 Go For A Bike Ride

One of the best ways to see your city or town is by bike riding. This is also a great way to get some exercise in. If you don't have a bike, you can always rent one. Just make sure to wear a helmet!

Cycling is a low-impact cardio workout that has many health benefits. It is gentle on your joints, helps improve your balance and coordination, strengthens your muscles, and can help reduce stress levels. Plus, it's just plain fun! So go ahead and explore your city or town by bike today.

There are many ways to get outside and get healthy. You don't have to spend hours in the gym to improve your health. Just get out there and explore the world around you. Your body will thank you for it!

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
