Staying active year-round is important to your overall health. As seasons change, so do outdoor conditions. Make sure to assess your surroundings and plan for changes based on your environment when considering physical activity. Try new seasonal activities with family and friends to switch up your routine and enjoy the fall.
You should always watch your step during physical activities outdoors. Uneven pathways, potholes and loose walkways are all hazards when exercising outside. Take the time to assess what is ahead of you to reduce injury.
As leaves fall and line streets, sidewalks and pathways, make sure to watch your step as you engage in physical activity. Leaves can be slippery, especially when wet. This increases risk of falls and possible injuries.
As fall and winter approach, sunlight hours get shorter. This means less visibility during outside activities, especially in the mornings and evenings. Take necessary precautions, such as bringing lighting equipment (e.g., headlamp or flashlight), to increase your visibility.
