Going to the gym every day is great for your health. It’s great for motivation, and it’s awesome when outside is a little dreary or extremely cold. However, when it starts hitting fall season, there is no better time in Arkansas to go outside and enjoy nature!
That’s exactly what I did tonight. I skipped the treadmill and went out on a hike. I’ll admit to y’all, I’m not the most outdoorsy person there is. Yet, when fall hits, this girl loves to hit the Arkansas outdoors! So what are some reason to go outside, enjoy the weather and be more active, well here are some reasons.
- The outdoors puts you in a better mood.
When I’m outside, I am in a better mood. I see the little things in life that are wonderful. I notice what shape the clouds are in, how sweet smelling the air is, and the little flowers or changing colored leaves there are. Also, it makes you feel like one with nature, and as lame as that sounds it’s so true!
- You’ll want to go again.
Being outside, makes you want to go out again. When you enjoy what you are doing you want to do it again. That’s the same with going outside and exercising. Honestly, that’s one of the reasons why I love fall. The weather is gorgeous and running outside is more fun than being in a stuffy gym.
- Breathing the outside air.
If you think about it, when you’re outside in nature the air is better smelling. That sounds weird but it’s the truth. The air I would say is much better for you too. However, if you live in the city, I would suggest you go outside the city for that, but I haven’t lived in the city so I wouldn’t 100 percent know.
- It’s relaxing.
When you’re outside you get away from all the hustle and the bustle. You can just chill and relax. Even though you are being active you actually can enjoy the workout.
- You just feel better overall.
I love being outside. It’s just the bugs and other creepy crawlers that keep me from going out all the time. However, when there’s cool air or a bond fire I’m there.
Changing your routine up is great for you. I love doing that, cause I can get bored sometimes. But that’s how life is sometimes. With fall right around the corner, it’s going to be great to get outside and enjoy it!
So I hope y’all do the same! Till tomorrow XO
