Pro Golfer Alison Lee In Workout Gear Enjoys "Time Off"

She’s always on the move.

Professional golfer Alison Lee was forced to take it easy while recovering from a dog bite injury, but she certainly had fun. Lee, 29, shared pictures to update fans and followers, including one of her posing in blue yoga pants and a matching tank top. "Time off very well spent," she captioned the post. "I didn't realize Pomeranians had teeth. Hope it heals 100% very soon.🙏," a fan commented. Here's how Lee stays active and happy when she's not on the green.



Skiing Trips

Lee loves being active on vacation, and went skiing in Japan over the holiday season. Research shows if done safely, skiing is an excellent workout. "It's well documented that skiing and snowboarding benefits cardiovascular health, overall fitness, strength, coordination, balance and more," says the Canadian Ski Council. "Regardless of your health and fitness goals, strapping on a pair of skis or a snowboard is sure to fulfill some of them."


Canoeing and Kayaking

Lee loves being out on the water, canoeing and kayaking in the sunshine, which is an intense exercise in itself. "Your arms are not nearly as strong as a lot of other muscles in your body," Olympic kayaking champion Greg Barton told the New York Times. "The more you can bring your full body into the stroke, then the faster you'll go."


Seafood and Sushi

Lee enjoys seafood, especially sushi. Sushi can easily be included in a healthy diet thanks to all the lean protein and vegetables such as ginger. Just avoid the mayo and cream cheese-heavy options. "If you keep your order to one roll and edamame, it could be very low in calories," Maxine Smith, RD, LD, tells the Cleveland Clinic. "If you can get a restaurant meal for 700 calories or less, that's a pretty good deal — a lot of heart-healthy light menu options are somewhere between 500 and 700 calories on the menu."


Beach Walks

Lee likes to wind down with beach walks and family time, which help keep her fit and happy. Any walking is good for you, research shows. "Any amount of activity is better than none at all," says the Mayo Clinic. "Even small amounts of physical activity are helpful, and accumulated activity throughout the day adds up to provide health benefits."


Seasoned Traveler

Lee loves to travel around the world, both for work and for fun. Studies show travel can have a positive impact on mental health and wellness. Travel may even help improve sleep quality. "Travel planning provides an escape from tedious or mundane routines," says Paul Simeone, PhD, Vice President and Medical Director of Behavioral Health with Lee Health. "The anticipation of a trip is as good, if not better, than the trip itself."
