At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, I began to walk and exercise daily, admittedly, like many others, I fell off after a few months. I have decided that now is a great time to fall back into fitness! The weather is cooler and there are so many wonderful local foods that are healthy and low calorie this season.

Here are some tips to help us “fall” back into fitness safely:

  • Maintain social distance by walking or hiking. To make this experience more enjoyable wear comfortable clothes and shoes with good soles that are made for walking or hiking. These activities work multiple muscles and allow an opportunity for you to organize your thoughts mentally.
  • Biking is another great activity. Like walking and hiking, biking can be a family affair. Make sure that your bike is in great condition before starting. It is always a good idea to wear a helmet when biking.
  • Yard work, such as raking leaves, fall gardening, and visiting orchards to pick fruit are also great forms of exercise. The cool thing is that you can see immediate results. Check out the latest fall plants, yard décor, and equipment at your local hardware store.
  • As always, make sure that you stay hydrated when exercising. Even though picking fruit or gardening may not seem like exercise, it is easy to become dehydrated if we spend a long time engaging in physical activity.
