Doing Yard Work for Your Health

 

I'm sure, if you have a yard, you already mow it on a regular basis, but if you feel like putting it off, just think of the calories you can burn doing yard work today. These days it's so tempting to sit and watch TV, play on the computer, or just stare at your phone all day, but by resisting the urge to be lazy and mowing your yard by push mowing, you can get work done, take time off from your sedentary lifestyle, burn calories, and get some vitamin D all at the same time.

Here's some suggestions to make the most of your yard work. For the first 30 -45 minutes mow without a shirt, but put on coconut oil for sunscreen. It should protect you from the harmful rays of the sun while still letting in enough of the sun's good rays to give you a vitamin D boost, assuming your mowing sometime between 11-3:30 or so.

Any more time put on a shirt to protect yourself from the rays of the sun. Make sure you have a hat on to protect your eye area from the sun and your head from getting burned.

For safety, make sure you take frequent breaks, especially in the hottest days of summer. Drink plenty of water and stay cool. It's easy to get too hot and not even realize it, until after you've stopped working.  Getting heat stroke is definitely not healthy.

Don't be lazy. Get your work done, but just make sure you do it safely. All exercise isn't just what you do in a gym. You can actually accomplish some things and burn calories at the same time.

Now just don't ruin it all by eating cake and ice cream when your done. Give yourself something healthy to eat. Reward your hard work with some organic yogurt mixed with nuts, maybe a banana, or some blueberries, if you need something sweet. The main thing is to eat healthy so you don't end up taking in more calories than you burned while working in the yard.
