The changing season and warmer weather is motivating for a refresh in your
fitness routine. Use these three tips to maximize your wellness for spring.
Find new ways to workout
Warmer weather means that you can take your workout outside. Incorporate
running, hiking, biking and other outdoor activities into your routine.
Group exercises classes are a fun and effective way to add variety to
your workout. Pool workouts and personal training are also options to
consider that will give you great results.
Enjoy seasonal produce
Your diet is an important part of your health and fitness routine, and
spring brings new and fresh produce to create healthy meals. Strawberries
for example, has its peak season from April until June and makes a sweet
addition to breakfast (Light, 2016). Asparagus has its peak season from
March through June and is a good source of iron, vitamins B and C (Light,
2016). Visit your local farmer’s market to explore healthy and seasonal
produce to add variety to your meals.
Treat yourself to a sweet and healthy snack or a full body massage after
your workout. Plan an outing with friends or enjoy your favorite book
or TV show immediately after your workout. This will motivate you to complete
your workouts by giving you something to look forward to after you leave the gym.
