Fun Ideas for Being Active All Year

January: Start the new year by trying out a fitness center—many offer New Year’s Resolution specials.

February: Give your heart a Valentine’s Day gift with dance lessons, such as salsa, tango, or belly dancing.

March: Anything can be fun with upbeat music, including spring cleaning.

April: Work in your garden. Bending, lifting, and stretching are all great exercises.

May: Build your endurance and strength with a bike ride during National Bike Month. Remember your helmet.

June: Once your grandchildren are out of school for the summer, ask them to teach you their favorite type of physical activity.

July: Cool off with a water aerobics class.

August: Celebrate National Bowling Week the first week in August. Get friends and family together and challenge each other to a friendly tournament.

September: If you’ve heard about the benefits of yoga but haven’t tried it yet, National Yoga Awareness Month is a great time to find special events and trial classes for beginners.

October: Take a hike to do some leaf looking. Pick apples or pumpkins. The beautiful colors are inspirational, and a brisk walk is great for your endurance!

November: Now that the leaves have fallen, rake and bag the leaves.

December: Try ice skating or building a snowman. If you have holiday shopping to do, walk the entire mall each time you’re there.
