Socially Distanced Outdoor Summer Activities for Cardiovascular Health
Summer used to be the most interesting season of the year; however, the unpleasant arrival of COVID-19 has changed that for everyone, in every country. The restrictions placed on movements and public gatherings limit the number of summer activities, which are also healthy for the body. According to a publication on Heart.org, nearly one-fourth of COVID-19 patients have been diagnosed with one heart problem. We point to inactivity as the cause and seek to use socially distanced outdoor summer activities to boost cardiovascular health amongst adults and children.
1. Spin your wheel
Take your bike for a spin in the outdoors. It’s the perfect activity to help improve your cardiovascular health, and it supports social distancing. Cycling can be done in groups without each member of the group coming in close contact with another member. Don’t forget to use a helmet, and pack enough snacks and liquid to last you through this activity.
2. Get in the water
Swimming is an underrated full-body activity that guarantees results. Swimming can cure mental illnesses like depression, relieve chronic pain, and burn calories. So if you’re looking to uplift your mental health and lose weight simultaneously, then swimming is your best option.
3. Hit the trails
Walking has some of the best benefits for our hearts. It may also boost our mood and help our legs stretch since we spend most of our days indoors. Walking should be part of our daily lives. An evening walk in the park under the low sun is best for the body.
4. Workout outside
Check your local gym for outdoor workout opportunities.
