Like it or not, daylight saving time is here and we’re all doing our best to adjust. Now that you’ll have a chance of seeing some sunshine still out when you finally leave the office for the day, wellness expert Carolina Russ suggests picking up these healthy habits to make the most of the time change.
Be playful - Enjoy the sunshine and bring out your inner child by doing activities you liked when you were a kid but haven’t done in years. Fly a kite, play some kickball, or do some sidewalk hopscotch while you soak up some vitamin D.
Exercise outside - Studies show that doing physical activity outside has a bigger impact on our mental and physical well-being, makes us happier, and more enthusiastic. You’re inside all the time, so get out and do some yoga, walking, or meditation.
Disconnect - Make the most of being outdoors by disconnecting from technology. Russ suggests putting down your phone and reading a book or just taking some slow, deep breaths to relax.
Take advantage of the extra light - When the days get “longer” and you have hours of daylight left after work, put them to good use. Go for a bike ride or take the dog for a long walk - Russ advises picking something you actually like doing so you’ll look forward to it and make it a healthy habit.
