Ready to get outside?

Ready to get outside?

Being outside for at least 15-30 minutes every day helps us in so many ways, especially during a pandemic ~ most importantly, it offers an emotional boost and can help you feel less tense, stressed, angry or depressed.

Is it safe to be outside during a pandemic?  The answer is: ABSOLUTELY!

From the Mayo Clinic's website: "When you're outside, fresh air is constantly moving, dispersing these droplets, so you're less likely to breathe in enough of the respiratory droplets containing the virus that causes COVID-19 to become infected. Be sure to wear a mask when you can't maintain distance from others."

20 ideas to safely jumpstart your new outside routine during the winter (and a pandemic):

1. Take a morning walk

2. Take a nature walk

3. Workout outside (you'll be amazed how quickly you warm up!)

4. Cross country ski

5. Go sledding

6. Fly a kite

7. Get a pair of snow shoes and go exploring

8. Lace up your sneakers and go for a run (hint: duct tape the top front of your shoes to keep your feet dry in the snow)

9. Live somewhere warm?  Go for a swim in the ocean!

10. Go for a hike

11. Practice your handstands in a grassy (or snowy) field

12. Take your dog for a long walk

13. Bundle up and ride your bike

14. Blow bubbles with your kids (in the winter, they turn into ice bubbles)

15. Jump on a trampoline

16. Prepare your garden for spring

17. Hula hoop in the snow (trust us, it's fun!)

18. Try a polar bear swim

19. Mountain climb

20. Walk on the earth (grass, dirt path, etc.) to reset your connection to the earth's electromagnetic field
