How to mix things up and get moving more often!
A new season is a great time to mix up your routine and try some new things, here's a list of our favorite new activities that we think you'll love.
A new walking or running route.
Grab a hula hoop or a jump rope to get your groove on.
Do a sunrise yoga class.
Take a day trip to a new hiking spot.
Pick strawberries (burns more calories than you'd guess and you can snack healthfully when no one's looking!)
Adventure out on a kayak at a local park.
Go swimming. (Even a large tub can work in a pinch!:)
Grab a beach cruiser and take a calorie-burning and sightseeing spin!
Take your family and your pets on a walk together. Maybe even make it a nightly routine. (With time, you may be able to train your pets to walk you!)
Extra-important weekend tip:
MOVE MORE OFTEN, PERIOD. Standing burns twice as many calories as sitting, so there's a start! Take the steps VS. the elevator. Park further away from your car. (unless it's raining of course...sigh.) Dance in your own living room!...It's like self-created Zumba! Dancing burns some serious calories. SKIP for a change instead of walking or do a mix of both...bouncing has many benefits as well as it helps our elasticity, plus it has the magical vibe of our youth! (Bounce baby, bounce!)
