Let’s Talk Health: Why Is Golfing Good for Your Mind and Body?
We once again return to our discussion about health. This time, instead of focusing on internal and mostly EQ based discussions; we wanted to tackle on the actual physical and metal benefits to golf. We loved how there was such a positive response to our post regarding the discussion of health.
Now, without further ado, here are some reasons why golfing is good for your mind and body:
All That Walking
Golf is not a sedentary sport—regardless of what movies and TV shows show you. Actual active golfers do not always rely on their caddies or even their golf carts. They are pleasant but often not necessary to the really serious ones.
Golf often involves a lot of walking—especially from one hole to another. That is certainly some good cardio that can help you stay healthy, especially if you’re the one carrying your own bags.
All That Fresh Air
Golf courses offer a lot of open air. To be specific, we offer a lot of clean air. Being in the city is fun and all but it can be hazardous to one’s health if you aren’t really careful about it. Fresh air is good for young kids, adults, and especially the elderly.
Golf is an activity that is to be played in wide open spaces so you’ll get a lot of opportunities to get a lung-full of air!
All That Healthy Morning Sun
The sun is our source of warmth and Vitamin D. Most lives today are lived indoors; in front of a computer. Golf can help break that monotony and literally get people walking under early and healthy sunlight. If you have some concern over the harsher rays of the sun, golf often involves early call times so you can be assured that you are only getting the healthy rays and not the harmful ones.
Now, we hope that these simple benefits will really turn your mind towards being a regular golf player. What other physical and mental benefits can you think of regarding golf?
