Active Recovery

Active recovery is full of fun and bonding when we opt into family activities. Here our some of our favorites.

Active Recovery

Scavenger hunt outdoors looking for:

  • three animals or animal sounds
  • three colors
  • two types of leaves
  • a nut or seed
  • evidence of water – dew, wet soil, rain drops, puddles
  • something in bloom

Perform 10 jumping jacks every time an item is checked off the list.

Indoor scavenger hunt:
  • 3 items to donate
  • 2 games to play together as a family
  • pen and paper to write a note to a friend or family member
  • quick clean of all items of bedroom floor
  • a book to read before bed
  • a favorite snack
Perform 10 jumping jacks after each item is complete.
Other options include: a long walk, gentle stretching, family bike ride – pick a gentle activity that will soothe the muscles and feel rejuvenating.  Get outside if at all possible to enjoy the connection of nature, family, and movement.
