It’s a rest day. So why is it so hard to just rest? As people accustomed to movin’ and shakin’, we understand feeling restless when it’s time to rest. Do these rest day activities to pass the time! Brought to you by Danskin Now.
Resting is a vital part of any workout regimen, yet it’s somehow harder than getting to the gym and working out.
Once you get into the swing of working out every day, taking a day off leaves you with excess energy that you just don’t know what to do with. You know you are supposed to take a day off, but you have to do something. Anything. Or you’ll lose your MIND.
Okay, I’m getting dramatic. But I think we can all agree that taking a rest day is strangely difficult. I just don’t know what to do with myself. And when I have too much energy and I don’t really know what to do with it, I often start mindlessly snacking just to be doing something. Since that isn’t going to do me any favors, I’ve found that planning a few fun activities to take up time on my rest day helps so much! This way, I’m not just sitting around and doing nothing, but I’m able to pass the time and have fun.
Here’s a list of my favorite rest day activities to do! But even though it’s rest day, I’ll probably still be in my workout clothes. Anybody else? They’re just so comfortable, and with new fashion from Danskin, I can live in comfort while looking stylish. I call that a win-win.
Take a Walk In the Park
Just because it’s a rest day doesn’t mean you have to sit around on the couch like a lump on a log. A leisurely stroll through the park is my favorite thing to do on a rest day, because it gets me up and moving without doing anything too intense. My muscles are being repaired, but I can work out some of that energy. I always choose a park rather than just walking around my neighborhod because it’s somewhere new, I can hang out with a friend, and it’s a great place to spend some extra time.
Go Window Shopping
Not only does shopping take up a good amount of time, it’s also fairly active! It’s easy to hit 10,000 steps when you’re power walking through your local Wal-Mart. And Wal-Mart is where you’ll want to be to snag the latest styles from Danskin Now. Soak up the last days of summer in lightweight shorts and breezy tank tops – ideal for those walks in the park and for hanging out by the water!

Get On a Boat
Especially in these last few days of Summer, taking advantage of the beautiful weather is a must. What better way to enjoy sun and sea than by boat? Grab your friends and make a day of it- enjoy sunbathing, fishing, and going for dip in the ocean when temperatures get too hot. You can easily spend hours on the water, and before you know it, your rest day will be over (and you’ll have the tan lines to prove it).
Don’t get stuck on yet another Netflix binge on your next rest day. Try these fun ways to pass the time, get moving, and have fun outdoors! Whatever you do, do it in Danskin Now.
