4 Recreational Activities That Can Improve Your Health

1. Walking

There are different astounding benefits of walking, which describe the extraordinary powers of such a mundane — yet wonderful — activity as strolling around the neighborhood. Overall, research has established a link between walking and the following outcomes: a decreased risk of developing dementia; a decreased risk of suffering a stroke; a greater likelihood of surviving breast cancer; significant improvements in fatigue, depression, and mental capacity for people with fibromyalgia; a significant reduction in the risk of developing type 2 diabetes; and increased sexual desire and satisfaction for men and women. 

2. Bowling

According to the Bowling World Newspaper, the average bowler swings a bowling ball 360 degrees on average (200 degree back and 160 degree down). If you compare an average bowler with a 16-pound ball to a full circle during a three-game series, the total weight of the ball swings is 864 pounds (54 shots multiplied by 16 pounds per shot). And what about the precise steps that must be taken in order to deliver the ball? In a three-game series, a bowler walks approximately 6/10 of a mile, with an average turn distance of 60 feet.

Bowling simply helps to strengthen and tone upper-body muscles, improve cardiovascular and respiratory fitness, increase endurance, and keep bone density in check.

3. Ping pong

In spite of the fact that you spend the majority of your time standing, ping pong is a great cardiovascular workout that improves reflexes and core tone. It also improves joint mobility in both the upper and lower extremities. It contributes to an overall increase in energy. Additionally, because it necessitates rapid thinking and eye-hand coordination, it stimulates brain activity.

Ping-pong has been shown to improve motor functions, strategy functions, and long-term memory functions in researchers, according to a report by ABC News. Dr. Wendy Suzuki, a professor of neuroscience and psychology at New York University, said the findings were "amazing." Suzuki claims that tabletop sports help to strengthen the areas of the brain that are responsible for movement, fine motor skills, and decision-making strategies. Swatting a ball that is less than one-tenth of an ounce in weight might be an effective way to improve your cognitive abilities.

4. Golf

On a nine-hole course, golfers who walk and carry their bag burn an average of 721 calories; golfers who use a pull cart burn an average of 718 calories; golfers who walk with a caddie burn an average of 613 calories; and golfers who use a golf cart burn an average of 411 calories. Golf, in addition to the social aspect, fresh air, and sunlight, has been shown to extend one's life span. Researchers in Sweden discovered that golfers have a 40% lower death rate than the general population, resulting in an extra five years of life expectancy.
