Parks can be a great source of all kinds of free exercise—running, swimming, hiking, fitness courses and so much more. Plus you'll soak up vitamin D from the sun and maybe even make some new friends. Bonus: Many studies link time spent in nature to better emotional health. You can find new nature preserves in your area through Google Maps or the National Wildlife Federation’s Nature Find at http://www.nwf.org/NatureFind.aspx.
