A small, three-month, study conducted in Canada suggests that women who exercise outdoors are more likely to stay committed and exercise longer than their counterparts who exercise indoors.

Great Sense Of Tranquility:

“The study team found that on average, the women who exercised outdoors had a greater sense of tranquility after working out and attended more sessions – 97 percent of the 36 sessions in the trial for the outdoor exercisers compared to 91 percent of sessions attended by the indoor group.”

Exercising Outdoors:

“It’s no secret that regular exercise is a cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle”

It is well documented that exercise is essential to stay healthy and decrease your risk for chronic diseases, physical disability, cancer, infections and reduces the risk of dementia. This is especially true for post-menopausal women.

The findings of the study suggest that those who choose to work out amidst the natural elements are not only more likely to stick to their fitness routines but also tend to exercise for more extended durations compared to their indoor counterparts.

The study unveiled a remarkable statistic, indicating that women who opted for outdoor exercise reported a heightened sense of tranquility post-workout. This serenity translated into a remarkable commitment, with 97 percent of participants consistently attending the 36 sessions conducted during the trial. In contrast, the indoor exercise group demonstrated a slightly lower attendance rate of 91 percent.

It’s no secret that regular exercise is a cornerstone of a healthy lifestyle, offering protection against chronic diseases, physical disabilities, cancer, infections, and even reducing the risk of dementia. This holds particularly true for post-menopausal women, making outdoor exercise a compelling option for maintaining overall well-being.

Many Benefits Of Outdoor Exercise:

When it comes to outdoor exercise, the benefits extend beyond the physical realm. Choosing to engage in physical activities outdoors, especially with friends, brings about a plethora of advantages. The commitment to exercise becomes more robust when shared with others, leading to more consistent and prolonged workout sessions. Moreover, the social engagement that accompanies outdoor group exercise has been linked to enhanced well-being and longevity.

Consider the personal experience of integrating outdoor exercise into one’s routine. For instance, the joy of Tuesday morning jump rope sessions with a best friend not only adds a physical element but also fosters social bonds. After 45 minutes of rope-jumping and casual conversation, the result is not just a surge of endorphins but also a heart brimming with satisfaction. It’s akin to the best therapy available.

Get Outside To Exercise:

In light of these findings, the recommendation is clear: reach out to your friends and establish a routine of regular outdoor exercise dates. The collective commitment to a healthier lifestyle becomes not just a fitness journey but a fantastic way to embrace and live your Kuel Life. So, get ready to step outside, breathe in the fresh air, and embark on a journey of well-being with the company of friends.
