It’s fall and it’s beautiful. The weather is perfect for taking a walk or doing your workout outside. The hot summer sun that made it miserable is no longer and the cool comfortable breeze of fall is here. It will be winter before you know it, so take advantage of the weather before we have freezing temperatures in Totowa, New Jersey.
Talk a walk in the park.
Whether you go to Bershire Valley Management Area Trail, Capoolong Creek Wildlife Management Area or any other park in the area, taking a walk surrounded by nature and the beautiful colors of fall can be both good for your body and good for your soul. Have a picnic, take a walk, ride a bike and enjoy. There’s nothing more relaxing than enjoying a cool comfortable day at the park.
Take your workout outside.
Whether you’re pushing a tire, doing jumping jacks or body weight exercises, they all feel more comfortable when you’re working out with a cool, comfortable breeze on your face. Doing a kettlebell workout outside is perfect. There’s more space, so you are less apt to hit anyone or anything. Even if working out outside isn’t in your wheelhouse, maybe using that same effort for yardwork is. After all, washing windows with vigor, raking leaves and getting the yard ready for winter can burn as many calories and use as many muscles as a good workout.
Make a healthy picnic lunch and go on a photo safari.
Of course, big game isn’t what you’ll be hunting, but photo ops are. Our area is filled with beauty and great opportunities for pictures. Take time to go to the Alonzo F Bonsal Wildlife Preserve to get some great fall pictures. If you’re a parent, have the kids help you pick and pack the lunch. Make it a teaching time for choosing healthy options.
- Take time to get some fresh fall produce at the 46 Farmer’s Market Co. You’ll find some healthy options that can make great meals now and ones you can pack away for those winter months, when there’s no fresh produce.
- Take advantage of the weather and park further from the doors of the stores when you shop. You’ll have to walk a little further, but who cares when the weather is this nice?
- Pick your own apples or pumpkins. It’s more fun to carve a pumpkin or use it for cooking when you’ve picked it yourself. The apples will taste sweeter, too.
- While we won’t tell you to go fly a kite when you ask for help, the winds of fall can make kite flying more fun. Come into Prime Performance for a free consultation.
