If there is one positive of this unfortunate pandemic, it is that we all have more time to be more physically active. Although COVID-19 has forced many of us to stay home and socially distance ourselves from others, you can still spend time outdoors as long as you’re safe while you’re out.
Here are a few suggestions for being more active outside and connecting with nature, while still distancing yourself to stop the spread.
Walk, jog, run or bike
Exercise alone or with your dog or family members, but be sure to maintain at least a six-foot distance between others you encounter.
Go for a nature hike in a county or state park
Be sure to check local guidelines as they may be closed or prohibiting the number of people allowed in to maintain social distancing.
Take your workout app or equipment outside
Soak up the sun and enjoy the fresh air.
Do yoga in the backyard
You can also do simple breathing techniques. Close your eyes and listen to the birds, feel the wind on your face and be more aware of your surroundings.
Grill out your favorite healthy meals
It’s another great way to get outdoors.
Learn something you have never done before
Try fishing or pitching a tent.
Outdoor scavenger hunt or Easter egg hunt
Limit the participants to your immediate family or 10 people or fewer.
Chalk your walk
Write positive messages on your driveway or sidewalks so that people walking around your neighborhood can feel your good vibes!
Play backyard games
You can play basketball, football, soccer, badminton, croquet, lawn darts, bocce ball or ladder golf without having to leave the yard.
