I’m sure by now you’ve all seen people riding a scooter around your neighborhood. If you have even seen these people carelessly zipping around with their hair flowing in the breeze, chances are you’ve wondered “could this be something for me?” There are a few things you might want to consider before picking up scooter riding. Most people tend to think of riding a scooter as a hobby, but it can actually bring about some significant changes to your lifestyle as well. We’ve made a list of 5 different ways getting a scooter can not only change how you get around, but change your entire lifestyle as well.
You’ll Get More Exercise
One of the more obvious ways getting a kick scooter will change your life is that it will help you get more exercise. If you are an adult of any age, chances are you are not getting quite as much exercise as you need. By getting at least an hour of moderate exercise everyday, you’ll see great improvements to your energy levels, your mood and even your habits. Sometimes when you have limited free time, it is hard to choose between getting fresh air and getting some exercise. With a kick scooter, you don’t need to choose between these two at all!
You’ll Get out More
Not only will you be getting more excercies than ever before, you’ll also be getting out more than ever before. Just like exercise, fresh air can create great improvements in mood and energy levels. Add the two together and you have a winning combination! Daily scooter riding is a quick path to a happier, healthier you!
You’ll Have More Excuses to Socialize
One of the things that separates riding a scooter from riding a bicycle is that riding a scooter can be a more social activity. When you are whizzing by on a bicycle, it is hard to have those nice little conversations with your neighbors. When you are on a scooter, you are moving through the neighborhood slower and you can take the time to experience the little things in life. I’m sure after seeing you on your new scooter, your neighbors will have plenty of questions. This can be a great way to start a conversation. You can also ride around with friends and talk the entire way!
You’ll Spend More Time With Your Kids
If you have younger kids, chances are they are more inclined to ride a scooter than a bike. Sitting up on a high bicycle seat can be intimidating for a kid, particularly for a younger kid. A scooter is easier for them to pick up and can be more fun. Any parent knows that if you want to spend more time with your kid, you have to share a hobby with them! This is your opportunity to hop on your own adult kick scooter and show your kids you know how to have a good time with them!
It Will Change How You Get to Work
While bicycles get most of the credit when it comes to getting to work, scooters are the unsung heros. Just like bicycles, they give you a workout during your morning commute and they can easily be folded up and put under your desk. Even if you work in a cubicle, you have enough room to store your scooter where you can keep an eye on it. If you don’t want to ride your scooter in the dark after work gets out, you can simply fold it up and take the train! Scooters are incredibly convenient and versatile.
