Working out brings a host of benefits to those who engage in physical activity, whether it's at the gym, at home, or outdoors. However, working out outdoors yields certain health benefits that can't be found in a stuffy gym. Below, Barton Chiropractic Clinic goes over a few ways that outdoor exercise helps make you healthy.
An All-Natural Mood Boost
Getting some fresh air and sun is good for your mind, body, and your respiratory system. An outdoor workout can also do a lot to boost mood -- outdoor exercise releases healthy endorphins. Sunshine has healthy Vitamin D and helps naturally increase serotonin, which is a hormone that profoundly affects your mood.
Challenge Your Body
Running on the treadmill is one thing, but running outdoors requires full self-propulsion, which will have you working slightly different muscles in your legs. Focus hard on form -- you don't want to develop any bad habits or nagging injuries as a result.
Lower Your Expenses
Put that crowded gym membership on hold until this global pandemic passes through. Work out at home and outside and save money that you'd normally spend on gym fees.
Since your workout is getting the old change-up, it's important to listen to your body. If you experience any tension, aches, and pains, we're here to set everything straight. Contact Barton Chiropractic Clinic today to schedule your consultation.
