Three Healthy Ways to Spend Australia Day


The first national public holiday of 2016 is just around the corner and the majority of us are lucky enough to have the day off work to spend with family and friends. There are plenty of different things you can do, from organised events to small informal gatherings and many of them can be healthy as well as fun.

Here are our top three suggestions.

1. Backyard cricket

There is nothing more Aussie than a good game of backyard cricket. Why not gather up your friends and family and enjoy a laid back BBQ and a lot of laughs as you sort out the amateurs from the professionals? Backyard cricket is a great opportunity for family bonding, a bit of exercise and a lot of fun.

2. Dancing

Whether you decide to go to a party, bar or club, listen to the Triple J Hottest 100, or just turn up the stereo and let loose at home, dancing has some fantastic fitness benefits as well as being a great way to release stress.

3. Walking

If dancing isn’t your thing, why not go for a walk? A brisk 30 minute walk each day has been shown to provide a range of great health benefits including improved cardiovascular strength, reduced body fat, stronger muscles, improved endurance and even stronger bones. It’s also a great way to relax, combat stress and enjoy the fresh air and scenery.

However you choose to spend your mid week break, we hope you have a fun, healthy day with your friends and family!
