How bike riding promotes self care
Taking some time out to be one with nature can help your mental health. Times have changed, so many of us are working from home daily. It is okay to change up your gym routine, by doing an outdoor workout for a change of scenery to get some fresh air. Bike riding can also take out the thought process of having to plan a complex workout, and helps free up your mind. Take a deep breath, embrace the scenery of nature, and carry a pen and paper with you because I am sure you will be inspired.
Some of us have been riding a bike for many years, and some may be beginners (That's OK). Riding a bike requires special attention, so it exercises different parts of our brain, that we may not use on a regular basis. The more you train, the better you become. Set aside certain days and hours you will like to go for a ride. This will give you purpose and direction.
Helps you get fit
And of course, it is a great way to reach those gym goals, without actually hitting the gym. Bike riding is a great way to incorporate high intensity cardio into your workout. It lowers the risk of heart attacks, diabetes, depression, and many others. It can even help strengthen your immune system as well.
