Boston, Massachusetts, is one of the greatest cities in the US. Recently and most notably we made world news with the Boston Marathon bombing, not only surviving it but getting through it “Boston Strong.” The rich history of our city along with its beauty make it a top tourist attraction. At Cenegenics Boston, we are proud to be Bostonians, and even prouder to be promoting a healthy lifestyle to all our city dwellers, one client at a time. We know it is a shared passion in our town to live life to the fullest. That’s why we have come up with this list of ways we can keep up our healthy living Boston:
1. Go for a walk
This may sound oversimplified and unnecessary, but the health benefits of a brisk daily walk are immeasurable! And with so many amazing parks and landmarks in Boston, you can take a different path every day and never get bored. Enjoy the Boston Public Garden, which was the first public botanical garden in America and continues to bloom today. Stroll through Harvard Yard in Cambridge. Or check out the North End, the city’s oldest neighborhood, home to Paul Revere’s house.
2. Buy produce from a farmers market
According to cityofboston.gov, the number of farmers markets has grown astronomically over the past few years, with more on the horizon. Some markets operate in the winter as well as in the spring and summer months. Check your local neighborhood market for dates and times. Support local and support health by shopping at a farmers market!
3. Take a yoga class
It’s no secret that yoga is good for you. It builds strength, flexibility and endurance, and promotes heart health. There is a plethora of top notch yoga studios in Boston, not to mention gyms and recreation centers that offer yoga as an option to members. To get started, find a yoga class near you and try it out.
4. Check out a museum
Boston is home to many world-class museums. Get some blood flowing to your brain by experiencing and learning something new at either the Tea Party Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts (one of the world’s most visited museums), the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum, or The Sports Museum.
5. Join a club
Making a new friend is good for the soul. Find a club that interests you and start going to regular meetings – whether it’s a movie buffs club, book club, sports fan club, history club, or whatever suits your fancy. Meetup.com is a great place to start.
The best way to maintain your health is with a well-rounded focus on mind, body and spirit; exercise and nutrition; meditation and experiencing something new. We hope you enjoyed our list, and here’s to healthy living, Boston!
