As you are sitting there sipping your coffee, there are two things on your mind: You need to order more coffee from Smokin’ Beans Coffee Company, your source for African coffee beans, and you really need to be more active. In fact, you are determined to get out and do more this fall.
Autumn is the perfect time of year for being active. The heat of summer just makes it too difficult to enjoy much of anything outside. It is also difficult to enjoy outdoor activities in the dead of winter. Nobody wants to head to the park and do yoga in December.
In order to fully reap the benefits of exercise, adults need at least two and a half hours of moderately intense aerobic exercise a week. So it makes perfect sense to head outside this fall and enjoy some fun activities.
Here are a few activities for you to try this fall.
Even adults love wandering around the pumpkin patch searching for the perfect pumpkin to take home and carve out a masterpiece. You get a great workout with all of the walking, squatting and heavy lifting. No fair using a wagon to haul your pumpkin prize to the car.
Walking at a moderate pace burns 200 calories an hour, so take your time picking out your pumpkin.
Ride a Bike
How long has it been since you last rode a bike? It was probably an activity you did all of the time when you were younger.
Riding your bike in the fall should be a part of your fitness plan. Biking builds stamina, strength, muscle tone and endurance. The best part is that the weather is perfect in the fall for a bike ride.
Take a Hike
Hiking burns about 400 calories an hour and works several different muscle groups. Hiking is also a great way to get some fresh air and soak up the sun, which is a source of vitamin D. In addition, an outdoor hike in the fall will put you in a good mood.
Watching football on television is not a healthy activity. Tossing the football around in the park with family or friends in the fall is a great way to burn some calories. Go ahead, give your friends a ping and see if they want to get a game of flag football going this Saturday.
Pick an Apple
There is only one thing better than picking apples from a tree and that would be eating them. Picking the apples is good exercise and eating them is also healthy. You can eat them straight from the tree or enjoy them in a pie.
Jump in a Pile of Leaves
Before you can jump into a pile of leaves, you must first rake them into a pile. Now, raking leaves might not be so much fun, but you have to admit that it is good exercise.
