There’s nothing quite like fresh air and crisper temperatures to inspire outdoor adventures. Autumn is an ideal season to get active and engage in some fun fall-focused activities, which can be fun for the whole family. We’ve got four favorites to share with you, each of which can be individually enhanced by wearing your personal favorite negative ion bracelet or magnet bracelet.
Four Awesome Autumn Activities
Depending on where you live, the fall season is a fun time to try new outdoor opportunities. We’ve got four, but the possibilities are nearly endless and can be done solo or in a group. Whichever one you choose to try this weekend, be sure to get the most benefits by venturing out with your signature negative ion bracelet for optimal physical and psychological well-being.
Take to the Trails!
Heading out on a hike or taking a walk is a great way to breathe in some of nature’s negative ions, which are especially abundant in forested areas and near water sources. Depending on the trail, all ages and abilities can enjoy catching the changing colors on the fall foliage. Always be sure to pack plenty of water and stay hydrated along the way. Check out whether your chosen trail has some scenic stops perfect for a picnic lunch.
Pick Some Apples
Visiting a pick-your-own apple orchard also puts you in the thick of the negative ions produced by trees. An added bonus, of course, is taking home a big bag of farm-fresh apples, perfect for healthy recipes or a fiber-rich snack. Check out our recent post, Power Play: Negative Ions + Fall Flavors for other seasonal produce and recipes.
Find the Perfect Pumpkin
Strolling through a pumpkin patch is a relaxing way to while away a Saturday afternoon. Of course, you can also flex a little muscle by picking up and testing the weight of each pumpkin before choosing which one look most welcoming on your front steps. Carving pumpkins is a hallmark of the fall season, with Halloween already fast approaching. But, there are also 9 Impressive Health Benefits of Pumpkin making them a powerful ingredient in a range of recipes, both savory and sweet.
Volunteer for Leaf Detail
While maybe not the most fun on our list, raking leaves is a necessary part of property maintenance every fall and… if you have small kids at home, there is nothing quite so satisfying to their young spirits as jumping into a freshly raked pile. Better yet, this task is considered moderate exercise, on the order of a brisk walk.
Barbara Ainsworth, an exercise epidemiologist at San Diego State University explains the physical benefit of raking leaves, “As you're raking, your core (or trunk) is working to stabilize your body while your arms are moving, A 135-pound person could burn about 240 calories raking leaves for an hour.”
