With fall is on its way, the warm weather and longer days are beginning to end. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t stay active with the cooler weather. Giving yourself the opportunity to enjoy the season can have great benefits for both your physical and mental health. These are a few activities you can do this upcoming season to ensure that your health is in good hands:
Running – Running in the summer weather is certainly a good way to test your endurance, but running in the fall has additional benefits as well. With the cooler and more moderate temperatures, you won’t have the issue of overheating. However, it’s still important to make sure you’re properly stretching and hydrating your body prior to exercise.
Hiking – In regards to staying active, hiking is also an excellent alternative for staying in shape. There are plenty of parks that you can take advantage, and along with it good for your overall wellness, hiking is extremely beneficial for your mental health as well.
Dress Properly – Before going engaging in your fall activities, it’s best to dress properly for the season. While it may be cooler, it’s smart to have breathable, light clothing, especially if you’re camping or hiking. Some articles of clothing that you can wear are water-resistant pants, a rain jacket, non-cotton blend shirts, and other fabrics that aren’t directly affected by moisture.
