With summer on the horizon, we yearn for adventure and vacation beyond the tired walls of our homes.
The COVID-19 virus turned the pleasure of travel into a hassle, but as restrictions lessen, the months ahead are ripe with possibilities.
If you want to stay active while on vacation, here are just a few ways to do it.
Walking allows you to immerse your self in your surroundings and feel like a local. Think of the shops in Paris you likely would have missed if you were mass transit or a walk on a beach.
Climbing stairs, even if you only manage one flight, strengthens your muscles and enhances lung capacity. If you’re able to climb two at a time, all the better.
Many cities have bike lanes. If you aren’t comfortable riding alongside NYC traffic, consider Central Park, which offers flat roads as well as challenging hills off limits to vehicles.
What makes dancing popular is that it doesn’t feel like a workout, but it absolutely is. You can scorch “between 200 and 400 calories,” if you dance nonstop for 30 minutes.
Some think yoga consists of a few stretches and some deep breathing, but this is far from the case. If you don’t want to take a class in person, you can go the virtual route.
