Spring into a Younger Internal Age
Spring is here! YAY!!!
This means it is finally time to get back outside to do some wonderful activities that improve Internal Age readings. Incorporating activity that doesn't feel like exercise is a great way to trick the body into working out when you don't feel like it. Here are some of our favourite things to do to get our Internal Age down!
Ride your bike (or walk) to work
If this is an available option for you, try it out. It will not only energize you for your day, but it will improve circulation by increasing blood flow to your heart, lungs, and blood vessels throughout your body.

Spend time in Nature
Walking and hiking in the woods not only improves your fitness level, but has also been proven to improve mental health. Stanford researchers found that walking in nature lead to a lower risk of depression. Get outside and start walking
Winter is still here in the mountains, so get out there for some slushy spring skiing laps with friends and family on the weekend. Skiing and snowboarding strengthen your bones and joints, improves mood, improves flexibility, and is a great time! Read the top 10 benefits of skiing here. And remember to wear your helmet!
Work out in the park
You don't need any equipment for this workout, it is body weight only. Take a nice walk to the park and use what is already there to exercise. You can find a body weight park workout here. Be sure to check with your Doctor before starting a new exercise routine.
Meditating for just 10 minutes improves internal age by decreasing stress and improving mood. Find a quiet spot in a park and sit with your eyes closed and focus on the sounds of nature around you.
