Fun, Safe Outdoor Activities

26527184 S Family Dog Children Outdoors

Times are a bit different right now. As community members practice social distancing to protect their neighbors, people are staying inside much more. On beautiful days, they’re safely taking advantage of fresh air and being outdoors. The team at Clark Podiatry Center is on your side during this new season of our lives. We’re also here to provide some helpful, fun ways to enjoy the fresh air.

Stretching and reflecting

Whether you have a spacious backyard or a small balcony, we encourage you to step outside. Enjoy the fresh air. Bring your mat, a towel, some music, and even a cup of coffee. Take time to stretch and reflect. If you have exercise plans, stretching is even more important. Prepare your body for the day.

Walking and talking

Even if it’s a quick trip to the mailbox, practice social distancing and give a friend a call. You can use this time to check in on a friend who may be new to working from home or homeschooling children. Walking is also an effective yet gentle way of exercising. Always be sure to wear shoes when going outside — even if you’re grabbing the mail.

Playing and staying

Step outside and bring a game of chess — or your favorite puzzle. You don’t need much space to take on your favorite activities. Doing your favorite things on a sunny day can become even more exciting. If you have roommates or live with family members, invite them to join in on a game or activity. Do your part to keep everyone involved in getting a little fresh air each day.

If you have any questions or urgent concerns, make an appointment with Dr. Brandon A. Macy, a board-certified podiatrist. At this time, we ask that appointments only be made for emergencies such as infections or injuries and for high-risk patients. This includes people with diabetes and severe circulatory issues. Our office is located in Clark, New Jersey; call us at (732) 382-3470. For concerns about your children, The New Jersey Children’s Foot Health Institute is also part of Clark Podiatry Center.
