With the winter season behind us and the spring season blooming all around us, it’s time to start enjoying spring time activities with the whole family. After all, spring is the perfect time to explore and get creative as the season symbolizes newness and rebirth.
Most people–including families–spend the winter months focusing on themselves and taking much-needed downtime. After all, the short, cold days call for homey restfulness. So, after a much-needed individual recharge, spring is the perfect season to reconnect with your family and participate in activities together!
This blog post will go through all the amazing spring activities you can do with your family. Check out the details below and get inspired to kick off the spring season!
Now, this may not seem like a venture, but walking is one of the simplest, yet most wonderful activities you can do with your family. It’s amazing because it requires zero planning and it can be done anywhere, any time. Hence, no organization, which is great!
Plus, simply being outside is proven to improve both physical health and psychological wellbeing. Not only that, studies have shown that fresh air can improve memory and alertness, allowing us to function better on a daily basis.
Movement, mixed with fresh air, clears your mind and reduces stress symptoms. And you get to enjoy the wonderful beauty of springtime!
If you’re looking to take it up a notch, running as a family is a great choice. It has all the perks of walking, but this way you get your cardio in as well. After all, running is perhaps one of the oldest and most widely used forms of exercise.
So if you want to get that blood pumping, you and your family can slowly build up the pace and distance. Together, you will be able to motivate each other to push limits and constantly challenge each other, making it a fun family game! If you have younger kids, head to a track so they can run freely while you are still able to keep a close eye on them without worrying about cars.
Cycling is a fun and adventurous activity that can also be done anywhere. Considered to be an aerobic activity, it will improve your cardiovascular health the more you do it. It’s a great lower body workout, working your quads, hamstrings, and calves.
Plus, it’s a non-weight-bearing activity, with tremendous benefits for muscles and joints, making it a great choice if any of your family members have joint issues.
Moreover, it is a great mode of transportation, both cost-effective and eco-friendly. Head to a nearby bike trail or add a fun destination, like a park or your local ice cream shop, to keep your kids motivated to bike together!
Yoga may have its roots in India, but today it is practiced in almost every part of the world. A great aspect of yoga is that it can be practiced both indoors and outdoors. Therefore, as a family, you can choose to do it at home, choose to find a nice spot in a park, or go back and forth! Whatever works as a family, the creative possibilities are endless.
The combination of mind-body workouts, focusing on peace and stability, pairs perfectly with connecting as a family. Feel yourself relax as you breathe in and out, and focus on the present moment together.
