01 Apr 5 Ways to Get Active this Spring
The sun is shining and when you live in an area as beautiful as Myrtle Beach, you’re looking for any excuse to be outdoors. Whether you’re hoping to fulfill that New Year’s resolution or simply ready to begin healthier habits, we’ve got some helpful ideas for getting active this spring!
Grab a Friend
Accountability! When you have a friend counting on you to show up to a workout or a walk on the beach, you’re more likely to go through with it. Try a new workout class with a buddy and make it a part of your normal routine. Being active is an important part of a healthy lifestyle but being social and making time to spend with friends is also key in improving your health!
Write it Down
Make a note on your calendar to remind yourself to accomplish a workout. By writing out your workouts and adding it into your schedule, you’re more likely to actually get it done! Plan your workout for a time that works best for you. Some people enjoy getting up early and hitting the gym or taking a walk before they begin their day. Maybe you’re more comfortable with getting active at the end of the day. Either way, make your health a part of your daily routine!
Hop on a Bike
There are plenty of bike paths and nature trails throughout the Grand Strand you can enjoy during the warm spring weather! Head to Huntington Beach State Park for a scenic ride and after, you can reward yourself with a little relaxation time on the beach. For a more urban ride, try peddling around Market Common. Afterward, you can treat yourself to lunch at one of their many amazing restaurants like Tupelo Honey or Costa Bowls!
Go for a Walk
Is there anything more calming and beautiful than a walk along the beach? Make an adventure out of your serene walk by taking the time to look for shark teeth and unique seashells. You can also walk along the MarshWalk in Murrells Inlet for stunning views of the water. In Myrtle Beach, there are plenty of spots for outdoor shopping like The Hammock Shops and Broadway at the Beach, where you can get active, enjoy the sunshine all while shopping!
Make it Fun!
While it’s key to empower yourself with exercises, the routine can become daunting without a little bit of fun! Plan workouts you’ll actually look forward to. Bring along your phone and headphones to listen to your favorite music while working out and plan a way to reward yourself after!
