This week I wanted to focus on getting outside. The weather is great during this time of the year (on the days it isn’t raining at least), so there’s no reason to stay inside and limit what you can do if you can help it. Unfortunately, we don’t always have the time to dedicate to sitting outside or even exercising given everything else we need to get done. Here are some ideas of things that you can do to get some exercise while still working on that to-do list:
- Clean Out The Garage. This is always one of the most imposing tasks on anyone’s list. No one wants to clean out the years of junk that seem to multiply on their own accord, especially when it’s a great day outside. If you open the garage door and put on some of your favorite music, however, it can be a rather enjoyable time! You might even want to invite a few friends over to help and then maybe grill some food to wrap up the day. That can give you an extra incentive to get some work done, too!
- Wash Your Cars/House. Getting your car washed during the summer is so important, especially if you live in an area where you hit a lot of bugs or pollen falls onto your car in high levels. There is also the issue of birds and their aim. Even your house can end up with a buildup of pollen, dirt, and algae depending on where you live. Although spending your day washing everything may not seem fun, I tend to pick hot days to do this so I don’t feel so bad when I “accidentally” turn the hose around and spray myself with that nice cool water.
- Mowing The Lawn. Anyone who has ever had to mow grass knows how much of a sweat it can work up. This means that it’s great exercise, and it’s something that needs to get done anyway! It’s also a great reason to take a long, cool shower once you’re finished!
There are tons of ways to get some exercise in with tasks you would have needed to completely anyway. Just remember to come into Wirth Chiropractic after doing them to get a spinal adjustment so that you feel even better later. You’ll be amazed at the difference it can make for you!
