Home » Bariatric Surgery » 4 Things to Do With Your Extra Hour of Daylight

We all know that winter can take a toll on energy and motivation. It’s cold, snowy, and worst of all, it gets dark early. This means your days feel shorter, and you’re much less likely to engage in healthy lifestyle activities. Luckily, we’ve turned the corner. Now that March is in full swing and daylight savings time is behind us, here are a few things that you can do with those precious extra hours of daylight!

Quick, Fun Exercises

Did you know that exercise doesn’t always have to be an intense 90 minutes long session? If you are looking for ways to incorporate more movement into your daily life, all you need is 30 minutes. So, instead of sitting on the couch and watching an episode of TV, try one of these easy physical activities.

  • Go for a walk. Now that the sun is shining for a little longer each day, it’s a lot easier to take an afternoon walk when you get home from work.
  • Go on a bike ride. If you want to kick it up a notch, take your bike out of its winter hibernation and give it a ride around the block or a trail in your neighborhood.
  • Play sports. If you’ve been missing outdoor sports this past winter, now is the time to take them back up. Have fun and get your exercise in too!

Meal Prep

Meal prepping is one of those things that everyone wants to do, but rarely can find the time to do. But now that the sun is shining for a little longer, it’s easier to feel like you can spare the time. Spending a few hours on a Sunday prepping some meals for the week can keep you away from that last minute take-out orders after work. This ends up saving you time, money, and keeps you on track for meeting your health goals. Give it a try!

Wake Up Earlier

Waking up earlier helps you feel more productive, and allows you to spend time each morning setting yourself up for success. Check in on your goals, meditate, pack a healthy lunch, and spend extra time getting ready. There are endless benefits to being an early bird! Plus, now that it gets lighter earlier in the morning, you won’t find it as difficult to drag yourself out of bed.

Start a Garden

Gardening isn’t the easiest hobby to pick up, but once you get the basics down, it can be quite fulfilling. Plus, if you get good at it, it can turn into more than just a hobby – it can also be a great addition to your new healthy lifestyle. Start off simple. Before you know it, you’ll be enjoying fresh-from-the-garden veggies and probably impressing your friends.
