We all know that most exercise is good exercise. With spring weather rolling in, you may want to know that stepping outside can enhance the benefits of your workout. Being  outside can lower stress and hypertension and improve cardiac function and immunity. It also provides your body with vitamin D and can help you fall asleep faster when it’s time for bed.

If walking and running aren’t your speed or you’re looking to mix it up, MedShadow has suggestions for how to get in a workout, while soaking up the benefits of the great outdoors.

Dig into gardening. You engage all kinds of muscles tending to your plants and get bonus points if you plant healthy vegetables or herbs.
