Now that summer is winding down it is time to make sure that you are taking steps to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Staying active promotes health and can help prevent varicose veins and other health conditions or issues. These are some of our favorite summer activities.
- Kayaking– Kayaking is a fun and low stress activity that will keep your blood flowing while getting you outside to enjoy nature and explore your surroundings. If you don’t own a kayak there are usually local companies that will rent out kayaks at an affordable price at different waterfront locations.
- Hiking– Hiking is another great activity to enjoy during the end of summer. Although if you decide to go on a hike you should research the area or trails you plan on using to make sure that they are within your skill level. Going for a hike is a great way to spend a weekend day with family friends, and it is something that just about anyone can enjoy.
- Biking– Everyone knows how to ride a bike and there is no excuse why you shouldn’t be able to dust off your old bicycle and enjoy a nice ride around your city. Biking is a low impact activity on your joints and is a great way to get a solid cardio workout all while exploring your neighborhood and city and enjoying the outdoors. If you decide to go biking make sure you wear a helmet!
- Rollerblading– Is another great way to burn calories and work on building muscles in your legs. Rollerblading is also less wear and tear on your body than running, and is an all-around fun activity that lets you get your adrenaline pumping in a fun way.
These are just a few fun activities that you should take advantage of while the weather is still nice and enjoyable. By maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle you can help reduce the risk of varicose veins.
