Great Summer Activities to Keep Your Heart in Top Shape

The summer offers us the unique ability to engage in all sorts of outdoor activities in particularly hot weather.  Though often times the weather can be too brutal for most people to even want to do anything outside, there are plenty of ways of keeping cool while still having fun this summer, even in the early afternoon.  The following are some ideas:

  1. When temperatures hit triple digits, doing anything outside can definitely become unbearable.  There are plenty of great ways to stay active indoors.  Joining a gym is one-many are completely air-conditioned and offer quick access to water fountains and open cool-down areas.
  2. There are indoor basketball courts, tennis courts, volleyball courts, and many other amenities to take your typical athletics experiences and bring them into a more comfortable atmosphere.
  3. If you prefer to take advantage of the summer heat outdoors but don’t want full exposure to the sun’s unrestricted warmth, swimming is going to be one of the best activities.  Try out a couple others that are close to the water as well, such as canoeing, kayaking, and fishing.
  4. A recent report has shown that gardening may be a good activity for the health-conscious as well.  An article can be viewed here.
