Looking for ways to stay healthy this spring? There is something refreshing and inspiring about spring each year when it rolls around. Many people use it as a time to set new goals, spring clean and hit the “refresh” button on their lives.
If you are looking for a way to motivate yourself to stay healthy this spring, we have several ideas that you can use to get a jump start. Here are 5 ways you can jumpstart your health this spring.
Boosting your immune system means getting back to the basics. Eating lots of fruits and vegetables, giving up smoking if you smoke, limiting alcohol intake, exercising, minimizing stress and getting adequate sleep will all go a long way when it comes to boosting your immune system.
Hiking is a wonderful and scenic way to exercise. Here in Arizona, we are lucky enough to live in a state with an abundance of hiking trails. Hiking helps you get in touch with nature — a natural stress reliever in itself — get some fresh air and is can also be a great group activity to meeting new people and socializing. For some of Phoenix’s best trails, check out this link here for ideas.
Springtime is a perfect time to turn up some ground and start a garden. Gardening is not only great exercise, but it also gives you access to fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs — straight from your backyard. For ideas, visit this vegetable planting calendar for Maricopa County.
Having a strong social support system has been shown to be good for our health and longevity. Not sure where to start? Meetup.com is full of local groups in our area, each with varying interests. Creating an account and finding a group to join is free.
Spring is a season of renewal and is also a great time to reflect on what’s working in your life and what isn’t. Take some time to reflect and re-evaluate this spring and decide what direction you want to take your life for the remainder of 2018.
While these are all great ways to help you stay healthy this spring, enlisting the help of a healthcare professional, such as a physical therapist can help you jumpstart your path to health this spring. A physical therapist can evaluate your current health condition and show you safe ways to start a new exercise routine or help you implement an at home program.
